Registering to Participate in a Meeting 
To sign up to participate in the meeting of your choice we ask that you please follow the steps below:

Please email us to REQUEST CLEARANCE to register for the Meeting of your choice.

Please sending a message to the organizer Dr. Anthony England at - we'll respond just as soon as we are able, typically within two working days. 
Make the subject line of the email the name of the meeting and request for clearance, e.g   'Malaria 2009 - Request for Clearance'

And please DO NOT proceed further until you have received your reply.  That is, do not submit the registration form (or an abstract) - if you do, it will be disregarded and deleted.

FYI - We're apologize for having to implement this pre-registration step.  It comes as the result of a certain amount of misuse/abuse of what has until this point been a fairly flexible registration procedure.

2 Complete and submit the ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM:

Link to the Online Registration Form


A - If you would like to present either an oral presentation or a poster during the meeting please send in an abstract.


B - If you do not want to present work then we ask that in place of an abstract you submit a short personal research summary, i.e. a paragraph or two on your background and research interests.

Link to the Abstract Details Page

There is no strict deadline, but please aim to submit your abstract or personal research summary within 2 to 3 weeks following the submission of your online registration form - this will help the organizer immensely.  A generic abstract will be satisfactory - feel free to submit a final abstract nearer the start of the meeting if you would like to include more details.

Please remember that your place at the meeting is not confirmed until you have submitted your abstract/personal research summary.


How to Submit Your Payment

If you require an invoice to pass on to the financial administrators at your institution prior to submitting your payment or a receipt for your payment please request one at this time - email

Please note - we do not require your Meeting Fee to include you amongst the list of Confirmed Participants - there is no strict deadline by which you must pay the Meeting Fee.

If you have yet to submit your payment for the Meeting Fee, please just let us know by email how and when you intend to do so - that will help us immensely.  Remember, there is no strict deadline by which we ask that you pay, and your registration will not be cancelled if you delay, but we certainly appreciate it if you can pay just as soon as possible after completing the registration form and submitting your abstract (or personal research summary)

Deadline for Registration 
There is no strict deadline for registration.  But capacity is limited, so we urge you to sign up sooner rather than later.

If spaces are still available we will happily accept new registrants any time up until the start of the meeting and will do everything possible to ensure that you have caught up with everything that you need to know prior to departing for West Africa.


Please Don’t Miss this Opportunity to be Part of a Meeting with a Difference 

Not just because of the location and the format - but Mangosteen thinks and does things a little differently than many other meeting organizers.  We do so quite unapologetically, and always in the interests of the participants, good science and excellent communications, and with thoughts of the host nation and wider developing world.

This is not a large conference that is being organized by a scientific committee of twenty or more esteemed professors, with a long list of invited speakers and under the auspices of several large societies or federations.  It will be an innovative and quite a small meeting, which is part of a new (but proven!) initiative, and which will take place in an extremely non-traditional location - a location that will certainly not be popular with everyone working in the research field. 

For all of these reasons, it is imperative that all seriously interested prospective participants demonstrate a preliminary level of commitment to participating at the earliest possible time.

It may not be a large meeting, but it can be an important and influential one.  It doesn’t take federations to build a good, strong, meaningful meeting - just the interest and commitment of a number of dedicated individuals thinking along similar lines. 

If you're interested, but not sure about Mangosteen's approach, please take a look at recent testimonials and perhaps speak to some of the past participants
