The 2013 European Scientific Conference on Applied Infectious Disease Epidemiology (ESCAIDE) will be held in Stockholm, Sweden on 5 - 7 November. The conference, sponsored by ECDC, will be hosted at the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre, in the heart of the city.
The call for abstracts at ESCAIDE 2013 will be open between 27 May and 5 July. Abstracts are welcome in all areas related to infectious disease prevention and control, including epidemiology, public health microbiology, surveillance, vaccinology and tools and methods to assess and mitigate infectious disease outbreaks and support disease prevention.
The 2013 conference aims to further emphasize the relevance of core public health disciplines such as epidemiology and microbiology, and their use in supporting outbreak containment, disease prevention and ultimately public health policy. Hence, abstracts that focus on public health science in support of action and policy are particularly welcome.
