Event description

Description

The Vector Encounter is a two-day gathering to discuss the biology of disease vectors, hosted by the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. During this engaging get-together, investigators present their lab's latest vector research on a chalk board, rather than on PowerPoint slides. To be considered for a talk, registrants are invited to submit their name and statement of research. Presentations are limited to one investigator per laboratory. During a breakout session on Thursday afternoon, there will be an opportunity for non-PIs to present their research in small group formations; see details below.

Pre-Registration Required:
There is a $40.00 registration fee, which includes two light breakfasts, two lunches and four breaks, for the two days.
The registration deadline is May 15, 2018.

The cost of dinner for Vector Encounter registrants is $30; the cost for a guest (not attending the Vector Encounter meeting) is $50.

Small Group Formations (Breakout Session)
In view of the positive response of last year, we will repeat the small group presentations this year. The format will be as follows.

Non-PIs (i.e., students, postdocs) will prepare and bring along with them a summary of their projects to be presented in approximately 10 minutes (no more than 8 slides). This presentation can be on a laptop, on a tablet or as a hard copy (paper). After the last chalk talk on Thursday afternoon (about 3:30 PM), we will form small groups of about 4 presenters plus one or two PIs who will act as moderators. The presenters will take turns in introducing their project and may be interrupted with questions. We encourage the presenters to include their immediate future research plans in order to get feedback from the group.

For those who choose not to present, there will be discussion groups on subjects to be determined, that will meet at the same time as the small groups.

Parking: Parking on Thursday and Friday is $12.00 per day (Washington Garage - quadrant L1 on the map indicated as Staff parking on the campus map, however, the garage is open to the general public.)
