The Danish Society for Parasitology (DSP) and the Scandinavian-Baltic Society for Parasitology (SBSP) would be honoured to host ICOPA XV in Copenhagen.

 

As two well-organized and active WFP member societies, we are convinced that we can deliver a first-class congress that will be attractive to a high number of participants. The Organizing Committee has an ideal composition in terms of backgrounds and interests in various fields of parasitology. Furthermore, both hosting societies are highly experienced in organizing congresses.

 

An ICOPA congress has never been held in the Nordic region, where parasitology thrives based on a long and rich history. Copenhagen, an urban European location that is easy to reach, would be attractive to participants from all over the world. Copenhagen has repeatedly been ranked as one of the world's most popular convention cities. The reasons include easy accessibility and efficient transport infrastructure, safety and cleanliness, and a wide selection of hotels and restaurants.

 

In the organization, we emphasize transparency and professionalism (e.g. website already up and running, early launch of deadlines and preliminary program). We will put extra efforts to ensure a high number of participants by e.g. securing funding for travel grants. We are confident that the collaboration between the local partners and the WFP and Kenes will be fruitful and successful. This will ensure that ICOPA XV Copenhagen 2022 will have high scientific impact and become a memorable experience to all participants – an ICOPA to remember.
