> Plenary speakers

> Symposia

> Timetable

No less than 160 attendees have registered. We trust it will be a great event.

Some recalls:

(i) We are planning to design a special issue of Infection, Genetics and Evolution (Elsevier; http://www.elsevier.com/locate/meegid) dealing witht the topic of this workshop. People who would like to submit a paper in the framework of this special issue are welcome to. Articles submitted will be processed the same way than articles for nonspecial issues, that is to say: reviewing by two anonymous, independent referees. Deadline for submission is 31st July.

(ii) A major goal of this workshop is to settle a collaborative network of researchers working in Latin America on the topic of the workshop. Therefore please have handy all relevant contacts in your own countries for building that network (not only scientists, but also public health people, science policy deciders, etc).

(iii) Since the topics of the talks are willingly diversified, it is advisable that every speaker introduces his/her talk by a short introduction about his/her theme, so that nonspecialists are able to follow (example: dengue virus is a RNA virus of the family Flaviviridae transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes, giving the following clinical forms, with the following geographical distribution: no more than a few minutes).

(iv) Both English and Spanish are accepted. Since it is an international workshop, for non-English speakers who are fluent in English, talks in English are encouraged, so that everybody can understand. It is fine to accompany talks in Spanish with detailed slides in English.

Please contact us for any inquiry.
