Call for Abstracts

The Coalition against Typhoid welcomes the submission of abstracts exhibiting original research or innovative programs related to typhoid and other invasive salmonelloses to be considered for oral and poster presentation. We encouraged submissions that introduce new ideas, research and understandings to the field, as well as analysis of both successes and failures. The 13th International Conference on Typhoid & Other Invasive Salmonelloses will be convened under the theme Catalyzing Change: The Urgency of Expanding Impact-Driven Solutions.

The electronic submission system is NOW OPEN. Abstracts must be submitted by 11:59PM EST on June 16th and will be reviewed by an abstract review panel thereafter. Please read the following guidelines carefully before submitting your abstract (a PDF of the guidelines can be found here):

When submitting an abstract, please choose one track and two sub-topics that apply:


  • Typhoid
  • Paratyphoid
  • Non-typhoidal Salmonella

Thematic Tracks

  • Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)
  • Climate change/WASH
  • Clinical outcomes and impact
  • Diagnostics
  • Disease burden
  • Economic impact of disease
  • Genomics
  • Immunization programming
  • iNTS
  • Outbreak response and control
  • Policy development, implementation and evaluation
  • Post-introduction activities/vaccine impact evaluations

Abstract submissions should follow the format below:

  • Background: State the purpose and objective of the research or program, as well as a description of the problem being analyzed
  • Methods: Describe the basic design of the study, including the study period, setting, design, population and techniques used for data collection
  • Results: Report the key findings that address the purpose of the study. Highlight any statistically significant differences or trends found in the data
  • Conclusions: Summarize the overall findings and explain the significance and future implications of the results

Please note the following guidelines for electronic submission of your abstract:

Abstracts will be reviewed by the Abstract Review Panel, and a notice of approval or rejection will be sent to the submitting author in August. The following review criteria will be used in scoring abstracts:

  • Is there a clear background and justified objective?
  • Is the methodology appropriate for the objectives?
  • Are the results important and clearly presented?
  • Are the conclusions supported by the results?
  • Does the study contribute to the field of typhoid, paratyphoid or nontyphoidal Salmonella?
