International Meeting on Emerging Diseases and Surveillance (IMED)
Vienna, Austria
February 4-7, 2011

The Program for Monitoring Emerging Diseases (ProMED), is pleased to [announce the IMED 2011 Conference], following highly successful meetings in 2007 and 2009. Along with [their] co-sponsors, the Wildlife Conservation Society, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), the European Commission, and the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, [ProMED is] developing a conference that will bring together the public health community, scientists, health care workers and other leaders in the field of emerging infectious diseases. The meeting will embrace the “One Health” concept recognizing that, just as diseases reach across national boundaries, so do they transcend species barriers. [ProMED] therefore welcome[s] the full participation of both the human and animal health communities.

With outstanding plenary speakers, symposia, and both oral and poster presentations of submitted abstracts, IMED 2011 is certain to be the year’s major conference for those involved in the detection, monitoring and study of emerging pathogens and to those in the front lines of response.
