Annual Midwestern Conference of Parasitologists



St. Norbert College, De Pere, WI

July 29–31, 2021

We missed the opportunity to interact with and offer support to our fellow parasitologists with an annual meeting in 2020, so with excitement and caution we are planning an on-campus event for the end of this summer It is our hope to have you join us in this event.

AMCOP and St. Norbert College invite you to attend the 72nd Annual Midwestern Conference of Parasitologists that is planned to be an in-person event on July 29-31, 2021. The meeting, lodging, and dining are all planned to occur on the beautiful campus of St. Norbert College  in De Pere, WI. To ensure the safety of our attendees, covid-19 protection protocols will be in place throughout all aspects of this meeting.

Dr. Anindo Choudhury, the Program Officer for this meeting, has done a fantastic job organizing the details for this meeting on his home campus. The meeting will begin with an opening reception on Thursday evening from 6-8pm at Bemis Dining Room on the St. Norbert Campus. Podium presentations will commence on Friday morning and continue throughout the day until the afternoon workshop and panel discussion begins. The poster session will follow the panel discussion. A pre-banquet reception will commence at 5:30pm and will be followed by a banquet and keynote address. The meeting will continue on Saturday morning with additional presentations and a silent auction. The meeting will conclude with the annual business meeting.Dr. Robert Jadin, the Presiding Officer for this year's meeting, will oversee the presentations and the business meeting.

A continental breakfast will be provided both days before the meeting. Morning and afternoon refreshments will be provided throughout the day and a lunch buffet ($9.95) will be available in the Bemis Dining Hall on Friday.
