 14th International Conference on Molecular Epidemiology and Evolutionary Genetics of Infectious Diseases

 

6-9 November 2018 | Hotel Melia, Sitges, Spain

Organized by Elsevier, MEEGID XIV will include 10 – 15 plenary lectures, 15 – 20 four hour-specialized symposia, and several poster sessions. Special emphasis will be given to health problems of specific interest to the present world: Zika, tuberculosis, AIDS, malaria, cancer and infectious diseases, to name a few.

Plenary lectures and symposia will also deal with transversal topics, such as population genetics, evolution, speciation, taxonomy, bioinformatics, whole genome sequencing analysis and -omics analyses.

Dear Colleagues,

We are preparing a session on “Surveillance of vectors and vector-borne diseases” as part of the Innovation in Health Surveillance International Forum (InnovSur 2018). The InnovSur 2018, organized jointly with the International Society for Economics and Social Sciences of Animal Health (ISESSAH) Conference, will be held at SupAgro Montpellier, France from Monday 14 to Friday 18 May 2018 (https://www.alphavisa.com/isessah-innovsur/2018/).

Please feel free to browse the web and check the attached flyer. As you will see, the general objectives of InnovSur 2018 are to highlight the innovations in term of health surveillance design and evaluation. The expected outputs of the forum are a technical workshop report and a policy brief to advocate for the needs in research in health surveillance innovations. The forum will allow sufficient brainstorming time, which will be introduced by some key presentations to set the scene for each topic and to engage the discussion.

The “Surveillance of vectors and VBDs” session will take place on 16 May 2018. The Program of the session includes selected talks from key-experts on vectors and VBDs surveillance in the morning, followed by a brainstorming and debate in the evening, in relation to vectors and VBDs surveillance policies.

 

Preliminary program includes:
- Surveillance of vector and emerging VBDs in Europe, challenges and perspectives. Marieta Braks. National Institute for Public Health and the Environment, Netherlands.
- Mosquito-borne diseases surveillance in Africa. Mawlouth Diallo, Institute Pasteur, Dakar, Senegal.
- Surveillance of Culicoides-borne diseases. Simon Carpenter. Pirbright Institute, England.
- Aedes vector surveillance aided by citizen science. Frederic Bartomeus. Spanish Research Council, Spain.
- Surveillance and ecology of tick-borne diseases. Annapaola Rizzoli. Edmund Mach Foundation, Trento, Italy.

As part of the joint effort, the ISESSAH conference will also aim to facilitate interactions between researchers in social sciences, economics and health, towards the improvement of decision-making in health policies. The advantages of combining both events will allow for a more efficient interaction between researchers from different fields and geographic origin and thus facilitate an inter-disciplinary approach to the next generation of health surveillance. We welcome you to attend the ISESSAH conference as well as the InnovSur2018 if your time allows.

The Electron Microscopy platform of the University and DIMNP are pleased to announce the volume EM conference which will take place at the new "Fac de Medecine" (close to tram station Occitanie) on December 14-15th.

Volume EM is a set of methods that allow to obtain high resolution 3D ultrastructural data, using scanning electron microscopy coupled to different automatic serial sectioning techniques. With these methods it is now possible to obtain high resolution 3D data within a few hours or days. Volume EM is of rapidly growing interest at the international level with applications in many fields of research.

During the conference, high level scientists and application developers will present the principles of these methods and selected examples of applications for research.

A "zebrafish challenge" has also been proposed to different microscope manufacturers, for which they had to image an imposed portion of zebrafish embryo using the equipment of their choice. The objective will be to analyse the results obtained in conditions close to "real research". The data will be presented and commented at the end of the conference, highlighting advantages and limits of each type of method.

The conference will be entirely in English. Inscription is free, you can get more information and fill in the registration form HERE

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.

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 interest. Attendees are warmly encouraged to attend talks in different disciplines to encourage the emergence of fruitful multidisciplinary collaborations. Together, the MEEGID congress series and its companion journal, Infection, Genetics and Evolution represent a unique forum for cross-fertilization between evolutionary science in the broad sense and biomedical research on infectious diseases.

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.
