Hotel Reservations J.W. Marriott Hotel, New Orleans 614 Canal Street New Orleans, LA 70130 Ph#: 504-525-6500: Toll Free-1-888-364-1200 Email: jwmarriottneworleans.com Our meeting venue this year is the J.W. Marriott Hotel. The hotel is centrally located in the Big Easy on Canal Street just steps away from the French Quarter and Bourbon Street, Which is famous for its wide selection of music, entertainment, and dining venues. You will be merely steps away from enjoying jazz, zydeco and blues, po-boys, etoufees, beignets, chicory coffee, and hurricanes. Streetcar stops which can connect you to the stately mansions of the Garden District, museums and restaurants in the Warehouse District, and parks/zoos/aquariums are also conveniently located near the hotel. IT’s the Big Easy, so you can find whatever you desire! Hotel Reservations—General Hotel reservation is separate from meeting registration, so each individual guest is responsible for making his/her own hotel reservations. The link below should be used to reserve your room; you also may book your room by calling the J.W. Marriott Hotel registration desk (504-525-6500). You must tell the hotel clerk that you are with the ASP to ensure that you receive the reduced ASP group rate. Everyone should be prepared to guarantee a first night room deposit with a major credit card. ASP Member Link for hotel Registration: https://resweb.passkey.com/go/ASP89thAnnualMeeting ASP has contracted with the J.W. Marriott for 586 room nights for the meeting dates. It is important that ASP members attending the meeting make their reservations at the J.W. Marriott Hotel to fulfill our room block commitment. All meeting rooms for paper sessions and symposia are provided to ASP at no charge contingent on fulfilling our room block commitment. The daily room rate for regular ASP members (doubles or singles) and student members (quads) is $108.00 plus tax.

The cut-off date for making reservations for the ASP room block is Monday, June 23, 2014. All reservations made after that date will be subject to the hotel’s regular rates and space availability. Convention rates for the ASP meeting are not available through online wholesalers (e.g., Priceline.com) and you jeopardize fulfilling our guaranteed room block commitment by attempting to use these sources. High Speed Internet Access is Complimentary in ASP guests’ rooms. Hotel Parking is limited and by valet service only for $39US per day Hotel Reservations—Student Quads Students wishing to make arrangements for a Quad room must contact the ASP Student Representative for assistance with scheduling roommates for quads. She will help you get organized and communicate directly with the local arrangements committee chair and/or our representative at the J.W. Marriott Hotel. The individual assigned as the contact person for each quad will be responsible for providing the names of the quad members, securing the room with a credit card, and assuming complete responsibility for paying the bill at checkout. Students sharing quads will need to work out their portions of the room costs with each other. The ASP Student Representative is Ms. Heather Robinson-Stigge, 501 Life Sciences West, Department of Zoology, Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK 74078; Ph: 405-744-5555: Email: heather.robinson@okstate.edu or hstigge@gmail.com. Important Transportation Information: Air Transport/Rental Cars Louis Armstrong New Orleans International (MSY) is the airport for the region.

Please carefully read the directions below and follow them. _____________________________________________________________________ The 89th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Parasitologists iv
  • 5. Preparing Your Abstract(s) All abstracts MUST be submitted in English. When writing your abstract, both the title and the content are important components. The TITLE should be short, concise, and indicative of the abstract; omit “the” wherever possible. Avoid general words like “Studies on” or “Investigations of.” Use words with index retrieval value. On the Web abstract-submission page, you will be asked to indicate the presenting author of the paper or poster, which will be indicated by an asterisk (*) in the Program & Abstracts. The CONTENT should be a single paragraph of no more than 2,100 characters (including spaces, punctuation and HTML codes introduced by the abstract submission program) containing a concise statement of: (1) the problem under investigation (2) the experimental methods used and (3) the essential results obtained. The text should cite quantitative data from representative experiments or summary data. Scientific names should be written in full when first used, but on repetition abbreviate the genus name with the first letter of the genus only. Italicize all scientific names in abstract (title is handled by editor) as instructed on the Web abstract/submission page. We do not desire to prevent discussion of new taxa, but abstracts and/or titles which constitute the first designation of new taxa will not be accepted. Thus, do not use genus and species names of new taxa anywhere in your abstract. Submitting Your Abstract(s) Submit your abstract(s) via our Web page (http://parasitology.winston.wfu.edu): Follow all directions, fill in all the boxes, and press “Submit.” You will receive confirmation and a copy of your submitted abstract via a confirmation Web page; please print this page so as to have your confirmation number. Submission of abstracts to symposia and/or conference sessions is by invitation only. All other submitters should choose the most appropriate session for your abstract. Note: The function to write/correct your abstract(s) and related information will be disabled at midnight (Eastern Time) on Monday, March 24, 2014. Acceptance/Scheduling of Abstracts Most abstracts, except those designating (naming) new taxa, will be accepted. Multiple papers being presented by one author may be restricted to two, with the remainder designated as posters at the discretion of the Scientific Program Officers. Notification of acceptance of and/or scheduling of your paper is not automatic. If you need a letter to present to your administration stating that your abstract has been accepted, please be sure to check that box on the Web submission page. If you need to know the time and date that your paper is scheduled, please e-mail the ASP Scientific Program Officers for this specific information, but not before June 24, 2014. Alternatively, you can check at http://parasitology.winston.wfu.edu or http://amsocparasit.org, where an electronic copy of the final Program & Abstracts booklet will be posted after June 24, 2014. Abstracts appearing in the official booklet of Programs and Abstracts are not citable as abstracts for publication citation purposes.

Social Activities The ASP Welcoming Reception will be held in the Ile de France Salon located on the 3rd floor of the J.W. Marriott Hotel. Our special event to commemorate the 2014 meeting will be a Jazz and Dinner cruise aboard the Steamboat Natchez, the last authentic steamboat operating on the Mississippi River. The package includes a complimentary cocktail, a live performance by a Grammy nominated Dixieland jazz band, a private buffet dinner, a tour of the working 19th century steamboat (including the engine room where original steam engines power the ship), and a breathtaking view of New Orleans from the mighty Mississippi. Join us as we step back in time to savor the beauty and romance of New Orleans, stroll the decks, watch the sunset, listen to jazz, and create lasting memories of ASP 12014. Oral and Poster Presentations Electronic Presentations—MS PowerPoint® MS PowerPoint® is the presentation standard for the meeting. Speakers should bring their presentation stored on CD-R, USB Flash Drive, or USB Pen Drive only; other storage formats may not be supported. Presenters must download their files to the PC of their session at least 30 minutes before the start of their session. Presenters are encouraged to save their presentation using the “Pack and Go” feature of PowerPoint®, especially if digital MPEGs (Moving Pictures Experts Group) or special fonts are used (detailed instructions for this procedure are in PowerPoint® “Help”). To ensure that each packed presentation is functional before you leave home, you are encouraged to unpack and run the presentation on a different computer than was used to create the presentation. _____________________________________________________________________ The 89th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Parasitologists vi
  • 7. Mac users can use the in-house systems if their files are saved with the “Pack and Go” feature. The onus will be on presenters to verify the compatibility of their files with the computers in use at the J.W. Marriott Hotel. The standard oral presentation is 12 minutes plus 3 minutes reserved for questions and answers, unless otherwise indicated by the moderator. A laser pointer will be provided by the session moderator. Use fonts, colors and features both consistently and judiciously. Your audience will thank you and, if you are giving a student presentation, it will improve your presentation. Remember, your science is on display, not your computer skills. Poster Presentations The poster session provides an additional means of substantive discussion of papers for members attending the Meeting. No competing activities will be scheduled during the poster session (unless absolutely unavoidable). Papers scheduled for presentation in the poster session are grouped by category, numbered and listed with their abstract in the Program & Abstracts booklet. Each numbered poster will be allotted a correspondingly numbered 4' x 4' space (122 x 122 cm). Indicate the abstract number, title, and name(s) of the author(s) at the top of the poster so that it may be identified easily; the lettering for this heading should be at least 1 inch (72 points) high. A copy of your abstract should be posted in the upper left-hand corner of your poster. 24th Annual ASP Student Auction Yet again, we are asking you to search your attics, basements, out-buildings, coffers or safety deposit boxes for donations to our Annual Auction to raise funds for student travel to ASP meetings. Serious, humorous… whatever you come up with… it’s all grist for the auction mill and will be much appreciated.

  • 8. Local Attractions City tours/Cemeteries/Ghosts Many vendors provide opportunities to experience a bit of New Orleans history and lore through guided tours. Whether it’s a carriage ride through the city, a tour of the Garden District, or historical tours of the Lower 9th Ward where Hurricane Katrina breached the levees and unleashed its devastation on the city, the hotel concierge can help arrange your schedule. The same is true if you are interested in the historic cemeteries with aboveground crypts, voodoo tours, or tours of haunted sites. You may also wish to tour the city on your own time. Two streetcar lines run regularly from Canal Street. One takes you down St. Charles Avenue through the Garden District with its stately mansions, Tulane University, Loyola University, and Audubon Park to Carrollton. The other takes you down Canal St. to City Park and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Many neighborhood cafes, restaurants, and bars line the routes. Audubon Zoo and Aquarium Touch a sting ray, feed a parakeet, and marvel at gigantic sharks, tarpon, rays, and sea turtles in the 400,000 gallon Gulf of Mexico Exhibit at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas. The Aquarium and an IMAX theater are on the bank of the Mississippi at the base of Canal Street only blocks from the hotel. The Audubon Zoo is located in Audubon Park in historic Uptown New Orleans, a short ride from the hotel. In addition to an exotic mix of jaguars, sea lions, whooping cranes, orangutans, white tigers, and albino alligators, the zoo offers educational programs, hands-on animal encounters, and lush gardens. http://www.auduboninstitute.org/visit Baseball The New Orleans Zephyrs, an AAA affiliate of the Miami Marlins plays in Zephyr Field located on Airline Hwy., just a few miles from New Orleans Louis Armstrong International Airport. http://www.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t588 Museums There’s no shortage of history and art in New Orleans. Spend the day at museums such as the highly acclaimed National World War II Museum, the New Orleans Museum of Art, or The Cabildo, where the Louisiana Purchase was signed. Refer to the following link for a list of museums: http://www.neworleansonline.com/neworleans/arts/museums/museums.html. Plantation tours Relive Louisiana’s antebellum past in an easy day trip from New Orleans. Intricately restored remnants of the 19th century agrarian culture exist along River Road between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. Peek into this important era in American history as you stroll beneath moss-draped, centuries-old oaks and amongst massive Greek Revival mansions learning about the complex culture that shaped the Louisiana of today. http://www.louisianatravel.com/river-road-plantations Swamp tours Experience a different kind of animal than those on Bourbon Street. Take an exhilarating airboat ride deep into the Louisiana swamps to view the shadowy waterways filled with towering cypress trees, alligators, turtles, birds, and fish. http://www.louisianatravel.com/swamps; http://louisianaswamp.com/; http://www.honeyislandswamp.com/ Beaches It’s only a short hour or so drive from New Orleans to some of the most picturesque beaches on the Gulf coast. The Mississippi Gulf Coast offers sixty-two miles of scenic shoreline that includes twenty- six miles of soft white sand protected by barrier islands where gentle waves provide ideal _____________________________________________________________________ The 89th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Parasitologists viii
  • 9. opportunities for family-oriented water activities. Venture by ferry to the barrier islands to visit the open Gulf of Mexico, Gulf Islands National Seashore, and Fort Massachusetts. A little further to the east is Gulf Shores, Alabama where the open Gulf’s emerald waters lap at mainland white sand beaches. http://www.gulfcoast.org/; http://www.gulfshores.com/ Fishing The culturally vibrant marsh outpost of Venice, Louisiana, is the jumping-off point for world-class offshore bluewater sportfishing for yellowfin tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi, king mackerel, and billfishes among others. Several Venice marinas host the majority of charter boat operations that fish the offshore waters of the Mississippi Canyon and north-central Gulf of Mexico, making Venice a true “Marine Sportsman's Paradise.” Most charter boat captains have functional webpages accessible by a Google search of “Venice+LA+fishing” or a cataloguing site like http://fishingguidesworld.com/. Trips are priced by ½ day and full day offshore excursions. Venice is approximately 2 hours south of New Orleans by car. For those that wish to combine fishing and family/beach activities, the Mississippi Gulf Coast also provides a wide selection of freshwater, brackish, and marine fishing opportunities (http://www.gulfcoast.org/fishing/).
