Dear members,
 
On behalf of the society, I would like to express our gratitude to the local organisers of CSBSP5 for a very well organised conference with an interesting and inspiring program. It was a privilege to attend.

I thank the previous board for the excellent work for the society and feel honored to continue the work with a new one. The new board has four new members: Vaidas Palinauskas (LT), Ulrika Forshell (SE), Gunita Deksne (LV), and Rebecca Davidson (NO). Jakob Skov (DK), Pikka Jokelainen (FIN/EST), Karl Skirnisson (IS) and myself Brian Lassen (DK/EST) continue in the board.


At the general assembly, new honorary members were proposed. The following persons were acknowledged for their work for the society, excellence, and promotion of parasitology:  Tor Bakke (NO), Karl Skirnisson (IS), Svetlana Bondarenko (LT), and Jesper Monrad (DK).


The SBSP Young Scientist Award winners 2013 were: Per Skallerup (oral presentation), Ulrik Bo Pedersen (poster), and Rita Kazlauskienė (public vote). Congratulations!

Dear members,

SBSP was represented in the EMOP XI conference in Romania and we return with a lot of important information to convey to you.

SBSP5 and ECTMIH2013 website

Please note that the website for the next conference is now up and running. Please visit it for updates and early registration for the 5th Conference of the Scandinavian-Baltic Society for Parasitology in Copenhagen 10-13th September 2013 in collaboration with the 8th European Congress for Tropical Medicine and International Health (ECTMIH2013).

EMOP XI banner passing to EMOP XII LOC

EMOP XII – Turku, Finland 2016

Led by prof. Antti Oksanen the bid for EMOP XII was presented in Romania and was accepted by the European Federation of Parasitologists. It is now official that this event will take place, and that SBSP will be the hosting society. It is the hope that the event will also attract participants from Russia. The local organising committee is already taking shape and currently have members from Finland, Sweden, and Estonia. Until an official website will be established, news will be posted on the blog: http://emopxii.blogspot.com and on Facebook

EFP Parasitic Disease Threat Quick Response Committee

European Center of Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) called together society representatives, including the European Federation for Parasitology (EFP), in Stockholm earlier this year. EFP was asked to create a group of parasitologists in Europe that could take immediate action in case of sudden outbreaks in Europe. It was decided during EMOP XI that EFP has the support from the members to create such a group of 15 individuals that will act as “network nodes”.

ICOPA XIII, August 10-15, 2014, Mexico City

Dear members,

We are proud to inform that we have revised our grant for our members to more easily exchange students across borders. The grant is simple to apply for and the form and instructions can be found on our front page. It is our hope that this grant will create an incentive for taking opportunities to collaborate and learn from each other. 
The opportunity is aimed at student members, but is not excluding senior members. The board has agreed to currently set the upper limit of support at 500 EUR and maximum four grants will be given per year. We are very interested in feedback from our members regarding this grant.

The board is also very active in organizing and attracting future parasitological conferences to our region. The program of SBSP5 in Copenhagen in 2013 together with 8th European Congress of Tropical Medicine & International Health (ECTMIH) is taken shape thanks to the dedicated local organizers and our board representative Jakob Skov. The bid for EMOP XII is also being smithed and the old capital of Finland, Turku, has been selected for the possible place for the event in 2016. SBSP is backing the bid as hosting society and two of our board members are participating in the organizing committee.

Dear members,

We are proud to announce that the first pdf-files of the society's journal (The Scandinavian-Baltic Society for Parasitology) is now available on our website. Thanks to help from the journals faithful editor, Jorun Tharaldsen, Karl Skirnisson, and the library of Estonian University of Life Sciences the Bulletin is now scanned to be made publically available.


In addition, the committee for planning the next bid for EMOP XII is now choosing from different
conference venues in Finland and an exciting program to be presented at EMOP XI this July.

January 19th 2012

Dear members,

Lots of good news. It was an expressed wish of the society's members for the board to promote SBSP to the world and attract new members. Here are our most recent efforts:

First of all, the arrangements are progressing smoothly for the 8th European Congress of Tropical Medicine & International Health (ECTMIH) that will be held in Copenhagen September 10-13th 2013 in joint collaboration with SBSP5. It is going to be very interesting to see how SBSP can benefit of designing a satellite event of such an important meeting.

For 2016, we raise the stakes even further. On the encouragement of Antti Oksanen we have agreed to commit to act as host organization for the next bid for organizing the next European Multicolloquium of Parasitology after Romania this year. The plan is to offer Finland as the obvious choice for EMOP in 2016.

In addition, we have taken an active step to make electronic versions of the society's journal, The Bulletin of the Scandinavian-Baltic Society for Parasitology, with the help of Jorun Tharaldsen. The electronic version of the journal will appear on our website's Archive-section.

P.S. Please check that you have updated your links to our website's new URL, and feel free to promote our Facebook-page in your networks!
