Future of the nematodes studies 2023


Registration guideline

We here announce the “Future of the nematodes studies,” which aims to activate the Japanese nematode research field by providing young researchers opportunities to present and communicate, lacking in international conferences. All participants, from students to PIs, can interact frankly in the meeting.

Previous meetings were held at NIG (2018) and Nagoya University (2019), and both were very successful. 2020 could not be held due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but last year in 2021 and 2022 the meeting was held online, and we had a lively discussion taking advantage of the ability to meet online.

5th meeting will be held on RIKEN BDR. The slogan is "Let's enjoy direct communication" We are planning on-site the oral session and poster session. Let's have a heated debate beyond on site.
