14th International Meeting on Molecular Epidemiology and Evolutionary Genetics of Infectious Diseases (MEEGID XIV), to be held at Melia Sitges,  Sitges, Spain, 6-9 November 2018.

 

In Sitges, we will celebrate the 14th consecutive conference in the series. Over the years, since its first session held at the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta in 1996, the content of the congress has changed to reflect the progress made in the rapidly evolving field of genetics and evolution of transmissible diseases.

As before, the aim of the MEEGID congress series is to disrupt compartmentalization among scientists of different disciplines, and bring them in contact with other scientists that are not directly related to their own field of expertise. In order to do this, the MEEGID conferences feature plenary lectures of broad relevance. Attendees are warmly encouraged to attend talks in different disciplines to encourage the emergence of fruitful multidisciplinary collaborations.

Global Dengue : challenges and promises

 

The Ministry of Public Health of Thailand is organizing the Third International Conference on Dengue and Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever 2013 (Dengue 2013). The conference will be held on 21-23 October 2013 at The Imperial Queen’s Park Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. The theme of this conference is “Global Dengue: Challenges and Promises”.

Building on the highly successful conferences held previously in Chiang Mai (2001) and Phuket (2008), this international conference will bring together leading scientists, clinicians, researchers, and scholars with a common interest and concern in the global situation of dengue, and will provide a venue for conference participants to exchange research findings, clinical experiences, encountered challenges and solutions in dengue treatment and control.

The goal of this conference is to enhance cross-disciplinary collaboration between delegates with different backgrounds and experiences, with the ultimate goal of improving the health of neglected world population affected by dengue, one of the fastest growing health burdens the world is facing.

You can benefit from the early-bird registration fees until 15 th July 2012.

 

Please visit  the following website at www.esove2012.eu for details and participation process.

 

The 18th E-SOVE Conference will focus on: "From biology to integrated control in a changing world".

  • Vector status: taxonomy, systemic, phylogeny
  • Vector behaviour: life-history traits, fitness, intra- and inter-species competition, biology of populations, invasive species
  • Vector-pathogen interactions: vector competence, immunity of vector, vector manipulation by parasites
  • Eco-epidemiology of vector borne diseases: spatiotemporal dynamics of the transmission, geomatics, modelling
  • Vector control: biocides, repellents, traps, integrated vector management, personal protection, human and social sciences, SIT, irradiation, Wolbachia, genetic control
  • Impacts of the vector control: ecotoxicity in the food chain, politic and societal perceptions.

Keynote speakers:

  • Luke Alphey, Oxitec, Oxford - UK - “Genetic control of vector insects”
  • Agustin Estrada-Pena, University of Zaragoza, Zaragoza - Spain - “Partners and contenders: ticks, hosts, pathogens, and environment"
  • Helene Guis, Cirad, Montpellier, France - “Assessing the impacts of climate change on vector-borne diseases : what are the challenges and knowledge gaps we need to overcome?”
  • Petr Volf, Charles University, Prague - Czech Republic - “Leishmania-sand fly interaction: from the field to the lab and vice versa”.

Montpellier, is rich with remarkable heritage, is located in Southern France on hilly ground 10 kilometres (6 mi) inland from the Mediterranean Sea coast. The historical city centre, named l'Ecusson, provides a unique and intimate feeling. We just hope that you will grab this opportunity to enjoy a memorable dinner in one of the numerous restaurants.

 

Your participation to the conference would greatly contribute to the success of this unique event, and we look forward to meeting you in Montpellier.

molecular epidemiology and evolution of infectious diseases in Latin America

25-27 April 2012, La Paz, Boliva

Epidemiología molecular y evolución de enfermedades infecciosas en america latina

La Paz, Bolivia 25-27/04/2012

 

 

> Plenary speakers

> Symposia

> Timetable

No less than 160 attendees have registered. We trust it will be a great event.

Some recalls:

(i) We are planning to design a special issue of Infection, Genetics and Evolution (Elsevier; http://www.elsevier.com/locate/meegid) dealing witht the topic of this workshop. People who would like to submit a paper in the framework of this special issue are welcome to. Articles submitted will be processed the same way than articles for nonspecial issues, that is to say: reviewing by two anonymous, independent referees. Deadline for submission is 31st July.


(ii) A major goal of this workshop is to settle a collaborative network of researchers working in Latin America on the topic of the workshop. Therefore please have handy all relevant contacts in your own countries for building that network (not only scientists, but also public health people, science policy deciders, etc).

(iii) Since the topics of the talks are willingly diversified, it is advisable that every speaker introduces his/her talk by a short introduction about his/her theme, so that nonspecialists are able to follow (example: dengue virus is a RNA virus of the family Flaviviridae transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes, giving the following clinical forms, with the following geographical distribution: no more than a few minutes).

(iv) Both English and Spanish are accepted. Since it is an international workshop, for non-English speakers who are fluent in English, talks in English are encouraged, so that everybody can understand. It is fine to accompany talks in Spanish with detailed slides in English.

Please contact us for any inquiry.

Welcome to La Paz!

¡Bienvenidos a La Paz!
