28th August -1st September 2017

Ecological Immunology Workshop 2017
"Insect immunity: genomics, microbiome, applications."


Venue : Blossin (close to Berlin) Germany

This workshop will bring together researchers interested in ecological immunology with the 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 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 conductive to the success of the meeting. We will be located at a lakeside, which at this time of year offers great swimming and canoeing, and a small private bar at the harbour []
