Welcome to the website of the 10th Conference of Scandinavian-Baltic Society for Parasitology!

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 10th Conference of the Scandinavian-Baltic Society for Parasitology (CSBSP10), in Estonia, in Tartu, (5)6-7 of June 2023. The tenth conference in the well-known series is the first one to be held in Estonia. The theme is “Parasites and hosts in shared environment”.  

CSBSP10 is an excellent opportunity for both experienced and early-career researchers to present their novel research in the fields related to parasitology, including One Health, veterinary and medical parasitology, wildlife and fish parasitology, and climate change and in parasitology. 

The conference venue, the Conference Center of the University of Tartu Library, is located in the city center of Tartu. The picturesque small Hanseatic city is famous for its river Emajõgi that runs through the city and of course for the University of Tartu founded in 1632. The gala dinner on the 6th of June will be hosted at the University of Tartu Museum, which is an old medieval Cathedral. The slogan of Tartu is “City of good thoughts” and we are convinced that both the conference and the city itself will treat you with many good thoughts.  

The conference program consists of oral presentations, poster pitches and posters. Furthermore, you can join workshops that are intended for students, early career scientists and for experienced colleagues. We encourage attending on-site, but the event will be hybrid to add flexibility and inclusiveness. 

See the program for more information, note the dates for abstract submission and registration and keep an eye on information on travel grants! We look forward to seeing you in Tartu!
