ESCAIDE, this year’s key conference on infectious diseases, is taking place in Lisbon, Portugal on 11-13 November 2010. In addition to providing a forum for sharing scientific knowledge and experience in epidemiology and the control of infectious disease, ESCAIDE aims to strengthen networks of professionals involved in applied infectious disease epidemiology.

- feasibility of infectious disease eradication in the 21st century;
- the application of evidence-based methodology in infectious disease public health;
- a review of the A(H1N1) pandemic;
