Dear Collegues,

An International Symposium entitled "Diversity among Schistosomes -
Perspectives for Control" was held at the Department of Parasitology,
Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology,
Wuhan, P.R. China, from October 16 - October 22, 2000. It was the sixth in
a series of annual meetings on the subject and was organised and chaired by
Yonglong Li and Andreas Ruppel.

We are pleased to be able to provide  WWW access to information from this
meeting (including the abstracts of all presentations). These provides a
valuable insight into the diversity and quality of schistosomiasis research
currently being undertaken in China. A report of the meeting will appear in
Trends in Parasitology in early 2001.

With Best wishes for 2001,

David Johnston and Malcolm Kennedy
