Submit an abstract

Participants are invited to submit an abstract on one of these two main questions:

  • Why do vector- and rodent-borne diseases emerge and spread in Europe?
  • How are research results translated to decision making?

More specifically, a non-restrictive list of possible topics is indicated below:

  • Rodent or vector behavior: life-history traits, fitness, within- and between- species competitions, biology of populations, invasive species
  • Vector or pathogen status: taxonomy, phylogeny
  • Vector control: biocides, repellents, traps, area-wide integrated vector or rodent management, personal protection, human and social sciences, SIT, Wolbachia, genetic control
  • Impacts of the vector control: ecotoxicity in the food chain, political, social and societal perceptions
  • Vector- or rodent-pathogen interactions: competence, immunity, immunogenetics, manipulation by parasites
  • Eco-epidemiology of vector-borne diseases: spatio-temporal dynamics of pathogen transmission, remote sensing applications, modelling
  • Models for decision making in economy or public health

Set up for Poster presentations on Tuesday from 9.00 to 11.00hrs

Poster exposition will be organized by sessions. To ensure an optimal exposition of posters, the programme of a poster session will be announced during the corresponding session, and we will kindly ask authors to stay near their own poster during the following coffee break to reply to questions. Moreover, all the posters will be displayed during the whole conference.

The best poster will win a Poster Award of 2000 euros in cash.
