International Conference on Animal Health Surveillance (ICAHS) Abstracts Deadline Extended to Dec 8

Please note the deadline for abstracts has been extended to Dec 8

Below is a an extract of one of the call for papers announcement from ICAHS. One of the topic areas is participation and surveillance and another is capacity building in surveillance. This could be a good opportunity to present your participatory epidemiology work! Abstracts are due by December 8.

The Second International Conference on Animal Health Surveillance (ICAHS) will be held in Havana Cuba from May 7 – 9, 2014.

The conference will bring together animal health decision makers and surveillance professionals from around the world. The first ICAHS was a success attracting over 250 participants from 35 countries. Due to the level of interest in the first ICAHS the second edition of the conference is expected to attract up to 400 participants

This is an excellent opportunity for groups who are interested in teaching short courses and holding workshops to reach a large group of epidemiologists, surveillance practitioners and animal health decision makers. The local organizing committee has made arrangements for hosting these sessions at the Comodoro Hotel in La Havana for one to two day events before or after the conference

We are pleased to invite groups interested in teaching short courses, or holding workshops and information sessions before or after the conference to submit their proposals to the conference steering committee.

You will find more information, and forms for submitting your proposal at our website:
