HERE (download) is a flyer advertising for the First Global Symposium and Workshops on Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal), which will be held at the Joint Meeting WDA and EWDA in Cuenca, Spain on 31 August 2020. This gathering will be the first time that scientists from around the globe convene to exclusively discuss contemporary research on Bsal. In addition, there will be structured discussions to identify the most urgent research needs, and workshops designed to build skills and facilitate research on Bsal and other pathogens. Registration is via the conference website (see below). We hope to offer travel grants to students and early career professionals, but that will depend on securing funds (requests are in progress).
