Formatted abstract
Australia and New Zealand’s reliance on livestock industries for survival and economic prosperity, combined with our diverse landscapes and climate, means that many parasitological diseases have flourished in these countries. Many still do.

Some of this research will be showcased at the 12th International Congress of Parasitology (ICOPA XII) in Melbourne in August, along with work from parasite immunologists from all over the globe (see http://www.icopaxii. org). In this special edition of Parasite Immunology, we have commissioned review articles from many prominent Australian and New Zealand parasite immunologists, to provide some perspective on their contributions to this area of research.

The theme of ICOPA XII is towards ‘Understanding the global impact of parasites from genomes to function and disease’ and the diversity of themes that will be covered in this conference will encourage positive collaborations on all topics that span the enormous range of parasitology. We take great pleasure in introducing the contributions of our immuno-parasitologists ‘down under’ and in welcoming you to Melbourne, Australia!
