Call for Abstracts: 10th International Conference on Typhoid and Other Invasive Salmonelloses


Attention researchers: the Coalition against Typhoid is looking for abstracts on typhoid, paratyphoid and invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella disease to showcase at the 10th International Conference on Typhoid and Other Invasive Salmonelloses, hosted in Kampala, Uganda, from April 4-6, 2017.

This is the only conference in the world focused solely on typhoid and related diseases. As such, it offers an unparalleled opportunity to share your research on an international stage with the leading minds in typhoid, paratyphoid and invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella disease. The 2015 conference in Bali, Indonesia, was attended by more than 200 researchers, advocates and policy makers. In 2017, we are hoping to exceed that number.

We want to make this conference the biggest ever, because shedding light on typhoid is more important than ever. By presenting evidence and research on a global stage, this conference aims not only to advance knowledge but also to use that knowledge to push for change. Our theme, “Evidence to Action,” reflects our commitment to improving the lives of people living in vulnerable communities through research. We hope this conference will set the stage for the new typhoid conjugate vaccines and advance a clear agenda for preventing typhoid, paratyphoid and non-typhoidal Salmonella disease.

But to accomplish this, we need your help. We need abstracts. All types of research into typhoid, paratyphoid and invasive non-typhoidal Salmonella disease are welcome. We encourage work that introduces new ideas and concepts, research and understandings to the field, as well as analysis of both successes and failures. Every bit of knowledge helps complete the picture on typhoid.

All abstracts must be received by October 28, 2016, but we encourage applicants to submit as early as possible. Head to our abstract guidelines page for more details about requirements and to submit your research for oral or poster presentation.

Denise Garrett is Vice President, Typhoid Programs at the Sabin Vaccine Institute.
