The European Scientific Conference on Applied Infectious Disease Epidemiology (ESCAIDE) serves as a great forum for public health scientists, epidemiologists, microbiologists, and others with a professional interest in infectious disease public health for information exchange and knowledge sharing.
The conference also presents an outstanding opportunity to be updated on methodologies to support outbreak investigation, and to learn more about how epidemiology, microbiology and other disciplines can be applied to diminish the impact of communicable diseases.
With an increasing number of abstracts received each year, I am proud to say that ESCAIDE continues to further enhance scientific excellence in public health through the discussions, presentations and poster sessions that take place during the three days of the conference. I am delighted that the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control is able to support ESCAIDE once more, while ensuring that the conference maintains its scientific independence.
In 2013, ESCAIDE takes place in the heart of Stockholm, where ECDC is located. I hope to see you at ESCAIDE 2013 and to count on your valuable contributions as presenters or conference participants!
