Following the inaugural EpidemicsÂ¹ Conference in Asilomar, USA in 2008, and the second conference EpidemicsÂ² in Athens, Greece in 2009, both highly successful meetings with both more than 230 participants, the organizers are pleased to announce that The Third International Conference on Infectious Disease Dynamics â€“ EPIDEMICSÂ³ â€“ will take place in Boston, USA, in November 2011.
We will convene to share another three days of intense dialogue on our ideas, data, insight, models and methods. Our invited speakers already reflect some of the breadth of what we hope to cover with talks on:
* Infectious disease in conservation
* The policy challenges to reducing the global burden of infection
* The evolutionary response of pathogens to our interventions
* Extracting information from the deluge of sequence data
Epidemics3 is a wide-ranging conference that broadly deals with infectious disease dynamics; to include field and laboratory studies as well as modeling.
Submit your abstract by 30th June 2011
The topics we expect to cover include the dynamics of infections of the whole range of host species: humans, wildlife, livestock and plants. We will discuss the dynamics of infections within hosts and of spread between hosts. We will cover the evolution and control of pathogens, and of the host responses that they must confront.
So if you work on the dynamics of infection, with or without a modeling component, join us in Boston for an exciting gathering of the infectious disease dynamics community.
