IMED 2016 - Updates

International Meeting on Emerging Diseases and Surveillance
Vienna, Austria, November 4-7, 2016

Dear Colleague,
IMED 2016 has opened a window for late-breaker abstracts. If you have an abstract that contains data unavailable prior to July 1, the original abstract submission deadline, you may submit it for consideration as a late-breaker abstract. All late-breaker abstracts must be submitted online between September 15 and September 22.
Late-breaker abstracts are highly competitive; only abstracts containing new, cutting-edge information will be considered. Retrospective studies will not be considered.
We also want to let you know that all IMED 2016 abstracts will be published as a special supplement to the International Journal of Infectious Diseases.
For the first time, IMED will be held in conjunction with a Hackathon that will bring together multidisciplinary teams to develop practice-oriented solutions to work on the development of innovative approaches to detect, predict, and prevent the next outbreak at the intersections of climate change, migration, technology, medicine, social economy, and the public and private sectors. Prototype projects from the Hackathon will be presented during IMED 2016. IMED 2016 Hackathon applications will be accepted online in early September.

An EpiCore Information Session will be held November 4, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. EpiCore is an innovative surveillance program that draws on the knowledge of a global community of human, animal and environmental health professionals to verify information on disease outbreaks and connects them through a secure web-based platform. The information session will provide an overview of innovative surveillance as well as a technical EpiCore training. All qualified participants will be pre-approved as EpiCore members. Pre-registration for the EpiCore session will begin in early September.

Full Program details for IMED 2016 are now updated on the web. You can contact if you have any questions about IMED 2016.

I look forward to seeing you in Vienna!
