Open letter of Invitation

Dear Colleagues,
The World Health Organization/TDR and the Schistosoma Genome Network 
Co-ordinator, Dr. Philip LoVerde, have requested me to organize the next 
joint Filarial/Schistosome Genome Meeting. This meeting will be held in 
Belo Horizonte, Brazil, from August 8-10. There are limited funds to 
support some travel, room and board during the meeting. These funds are 
primarily for participants from Disease Endemic Countries. Those who wish 
to attend should contact me (http://www.cpqrr.fiocruz.br/dna/fsgnm/ or 
oliveira at cpqrr.fiocruz.br) as soon as possible. As funds are limited, all 
of the interested parties, especially those from developed countries, are 
requested to possibly pay for their own travel costs. International flights 
are available either directly to Belo Horizonte, or connections through Rio 
de Janeiro or Sao Paulo. The meeting will start in the evening of the 8th 
of August. On Saturday there will be separate meetings and both groups will 
meet in joint session on Sunday morning. We expect to accommodate as many 
applicants as possible and look forward to a very fruitful and exciting 
meeting. Sincerely,
Guilherme Oliveira
