The conference will bring together researchers from across the globe and will be an opportunity to share and gain feedback on epidemiological findings from genomic epidemiology studies and gain insights on developing malaria control protocols and public health interventions.

Featuring oral presentations from submitted abstracts, poster sessions, poster pitch talks and panel discussions, there will be plenty of opportunities for networking at this highly interactive meeting.

The conference will explore a variety of themes related to malaria:

  • Drug, diagnostic and insecticide resistance
  • Genomic studies of species interactions
  • Vector and parasites: neglected and emerging species
  • global response to biological threats
  • Spatiotemporal genomic epidemiology of parasites and vectors
