‘Insect immunity: genomics, microbiome, applications‘
28th August to 1st September 2017 in Blossin (close to Berlin), Germany.
This workshop will bring together researchers interested in ecological immunology with a focus on insects, and with diverse scientific backgrounds ranging from molecular biology to ecology. The hallmark of these workshops, started in 2001, is the open atmosphere fostering free exchange by keeping it an affordable, small conference (100 participants). The format consists of eighteen invited speakers, contributed talks and a dedicated poster. Long breaks provide plenty of opportunity for informal exchange. Past workshops have initiated new collaborations and ideas focusing on frontier research that has not been published. The premises are basic but in a beautiful location conducive to the success of the meeting. We will be located at a lakeside, which at this time of the year offers great swimming and canoeing, and a small private bar at the harbour [http://www.blossin.de].
