Conference to examine emerging vector-borne diseases, their epidemiology and clinical management

The European Scientific Counsel for Companion Animal Parasites (ESCCAP) is to host a scientific conference in 2016 to discuss and examine current issues in emerging vector-borne diseases. ESCCAP VBD 2016 will be held on 19 - 20 October at the 2016 Southern European Veterinarian Conference in Granada, Spain.

This pre-congress symposium will concentrate on the problems presented by emerging vector-borne diseases in Europe. Recognised experts will provide updates from the scientific field and this focused meeting will bring together researchers of different areas to discuss common solutions in the frame of a one-health concept. It will be followed by a workshop aimed at clinicians and nurses.

The scientific committee will be chaired by Professor Guadalupe Miró Corrales from the Facultad de Veterinaria, Madrid and there will be presentations from invited guest speakers including:

  • Barbara Kohn (Veterinary Faculty of Berlin, Germany)
  • Reinhard K. Straubinger (University of Munich, Germany)
  • Gad Baneth (Hebrew University, Israel)

  • Laura Kramer (University of Parma, Italy)
  • Patrick Bourdeau (Veterinary Faculty of Nantes, France)
  • Maria Grazia Pennisi (University of Messina, Italy)

This symposium will present the veterinary community with the latest developments in vector-borne diseases and promises to be stimulating and informative.
