On behalf of the Ministry of Public Health, the Royal Thai Government, I am honored to invite you to participate in the Third International Conference on Dengue and Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever 2013 (Dengue 2013). The conference will be held on 21-23 October 2013 at The Imperial Queen’s Park Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand. The theme of this conference is “Global Dengue: Challenges and Promises”.
Building on the highly successful conferences held previously in Chiang Mai (2001) and Phuket (2008), this international conference will bring together leading scientists, clinicians, researchers, and scholars with a common interest and concern in the global situation of dengue, and will provide a venue for conference participants to exchange research findings, clinical experiences, encountered challenges and solutions in dengue treatment and control. Our goal is to enhance cross-disciplinary collaboration between delegates with different backgrounds and experiences, with the ultimate goal of improving the health of neglected world population affected by dengue, one of the fastest growing health burdens the world is facing.
The conference will host keynote lectures by noted authorities, plenary sessions and themed symposiums with invited speakers, oral and poster presentations. We encourage participants to submit abstracts focusing on one of these topics: pathophysiology, diagnosis, clinical management, epidemiology, vector biology, ecology, and control, advocacy for social and community commitment, and vaccine development.
Please mark these dates on your busy schedule and start making plans to join us for what we hope will be a milestone of international events in dengue in 2013.
