Conference: Amsterdam.MEEGID


03-Nov-2010 - 05-Nov-2010

CALL FOR PAPERS
Abstract submission deadline: June 4, 2010

INTRODUCTION
Infectious Diseases and Epidemiology have never been more important
topics than they are today. In these exciting times, we are proud
to announce the 10th edition of the highly successful international
conference series on the Molecular Epidemiology and Evolutionary
Genetics
of Infectious Diseases (MEEGID). Together, the MEEGID congress series
and its companion journal, Infection, Genetics and Evolution,
represent
the main forum for cross-fertilization between evolutionary science
and
biomedical research on infectious diseases. This major scientific
event
will be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, from 3 - 5 November 2010.

PROGRAMME
MEEGID is a wide-ranging conference that deals with the molecular
evolution of all pathogens: viruses, pathogenic bacteria, fungi,
parasites
and prions of medical, veterinary or agronomical relevance. Through
plenary lectures and symposia, special emphasis will be given to HIV/
AIDS,
malaria, tuberculosis, ebola and influenza. Attendance at this
conference
will enable you to:

Access unique, high-quality content and gain a state-of-the-art
report on
the latest developments in infectious diseases and epidemiology
research
Learn from experts in the field and meet with international
researchers
sharing a common interest. Present your latest research Network with
an interdisciplinary group - including academics and researchers, as
well as health and industry professionals.

SCOPE AND TOPICS
The programme will be organised around the following themes:

Molecular epidemiology
Evolutionary genetics, genomics, proteomics
Mathematical modeling & bio-informatics
Molecular diagnostics
Population biology
Genetics, population biology and morphometrics of vectors
Host genetic susceptibility to infectious diseases
All pathogens and infectious models will be
considered, including those of veterinary or
agronomical relevance. Contributions are
solicited in all aspects of these themes with
emphasis on interdisciplinary studies that
support the development of new science
hypotheses and innovative management
applications.
