Call for abstract :

The call for abstracts is now closed.

Abstracts are currently under review. Abstracts will be selected for oral, flash talk and poster or poster presentation based on the following criteria:

  • Relevance of the research to the conference theme,
  • Scientific quality of the research approach,
  • Quality of the abstract writing, and
  • A slight preference will be given to abstracts that summarise completed research compared to ongoing work.

The criteria for selection will also include the focus on the themes of the conference: “One Health”, “Zoonotic,” and “Global Burden of Animal Disease”. Applications particularly appreciated include:

  • Animal health surveillance, control and public policies
  • The role of human behaviour, institutions, market, policies… in the ecology of animal diseases
  • Interface between animals, humans, and the environment
  • Measurement of disease burden and resources to manage diseases.

Moreover, the panel will aim to achieve a balance in terms of geographical representation, gender and level of seniority.

Authors will be notified of the decision mid April 2019.
