2nd International Conference on Animal Health Surveillance
7th May 2014 @ 12:00 am - 9th May 2014 @ 12:00 am
Second announcement – ICAHS2 – Call for papers now open!
Authors are now coridally invited to submit papers to be presented at ICAHS2, 7-9 May 2014. The deadline for paper submissions is 1 December 2013.
Similar to the first ICAHS in 2011, ICAHS2 will provide a platform for discussion and interaction among surveillance stakeholders – researchers, risk managers, animal health managers and other decision makers – to foster a better dialog between science and policy in the field of animal health surveillance. The conference will include both discussions about scientific and technical issues and will also explore how scientists and policy makers can collaborate to facilitate the implementation of effective and efficient surveillance methods.
The overarching theme for ICAHS2 is “Surveillance against the odds”, a theme that encompasses the wide range of challenges that surveillance professionals face in their daily work; from working in resource-constrained communities, demonstrating the absence of disease in wildlife, making full use of the potential of molecular information or trying to integrate surveillance information across sectors ranging from public health to veterinary medicine to aid joint decision making and signal sharing. Further information including the abstract template and registration details can be found on the ICAHS2 website.
