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. Presentations are limited to one investigator per laboratory, by the PI if at all possible or by a senior member otherwise. 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, 2019.

Dinner (optional): On Thursday evening participants are invited to attend a casual group dinner over crabs at Captain James Landing restaurant. The crab meal can be substituted for lasagna or pasta primavera during online registration. Payment is required during online registration. The cost of dinner for Vector Encounter registrants is $30 (subsidized); the cost for a guest (not attending the Vector Encounter meeting) is $50.

Payment:
Payment should be made here during online registration. However, if another person will pay for your registration or if you belong to a JHMRI lab, select the ticket labelled: "Register as a member of a group payment including JHMRI labs" to register without paying at this time. If you are paying for another person or multiple people, please contact Trish.Ward@jhu.edu. Payments must be received by May 15, 2019.

Select all appropriate ticket types for your participation before paying at checkout. Fees are listed below:
$40, registration

$50, Thursday dinner for guest (not a participant)*

*To purchase dinner at Captain James Landing for your guest ($50), contact Trish.Ward@jhu.edu by May 15, 2019.

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.)
