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.



We are pleased to inform you that the deadline for abstract submission has been extended to Monday 12 February 2018 for poster presentations. We invite you to submit an abstract using the online submission form (https://www.alphavisa.com/isessah-innovsur/2018/forms/abstract-submission/#/steps/1). All selected abstracts will be published in the abstract book, provided that the presenting author is registered to the meeting.



Registration is open and can be processed at https://www.alphavisa.com/isessah-innovsur/2018/forms/registration-fees.php
