Scandinavian-Baltic Society for Parasitology (SBSP) is an active member of WFP, and will host the next congress of WFP, ICOPA (ICOPAnhagen) together with DSP in 2022.

Dear parasitologists from all over the world, the Organizing Committee of ICOPAnhagen wants to hear what you think!
Please take the time to write a couple of lines in the space provided on page http://icopaxv.dk/index.html
For example: What did you like best about ICOPA 2018 in Daegu? What would you like to find at ICOPA 2022 in Copenhagen that you did not find at ICOPA 2018? If you did not attend ICOPA 2018, why was that?
This consultation is an anonymous collection of information, and the messages will not be replied. All input is greatly appreciated and will help us make ICOPAnhagen an ICOPA to remember!

President of SBSP Pikka Jokelainen was nominated as the 1st Vice-President of World Federation of Parasitologists (WFP).

Together with the Danish Society for Parasitology (DSP), SBSP will host the next ICOPA in 2022 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Thank you for the support! We are looking forward to 2022!
