Fifth Asian Pacific Congress of Protistology (APCOP-V)

November 4 @ 8:00 am November 6 @ 5:00 pm University of Queensland, Australia

Asian Pacific Congress of Protistology (APCOP-V) is the new branding for the 5th edition of the Asian Congress of Protistology (ACOP), to be held for the first time in the Southern Hemisphere. This event is held every three years, championed by regional societies of Japan, South Korea, and China, which are affiliated with the International Society for Protistologists, the world’s leading professional society in the discipline. Our society members based in the Asian Pacific region and beyond represent over 1,000 scientists who study the biodiverse protists across a myriad of disciplines. Unique in 2024, APCOP-V will be held jointly with the Annual Meeting of the Australasian Society of Phycology and Aquatic Botany (ASPAB), to stimulate engagements and expand our community to researchers of seaweeds and seagrasses.

APCOP-V will facilitate multidisciplinary crosstalks among participating international researchers, academics, and professionals from various career stages. This congress will broadly focus on multidisciplinary protist research thematic areas – omics and microbiome, symbiosis and halobiont, parasites and infection, model organisms, systematics, taxonomy and evolution, microscopy and cell biology, algal blooms, ecology and physiology.
