Call for Symposia

The Coalition against Typhoid invites submissions for symposia related to typhoid fever and other invasive salmonelloses, and which support the conference theme and objectives. Each symposium will be one hour and should have a cohesive theme and clear objectives. 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. Symposia must be submitted by 11:59PM EST on June 16th and will be reviewed by CaT leadership and the conference Scientific Committee.
