SECEBT supports the 2009 Conference on Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases (EEID)

Our meeting website will be updated with workshop and conference information: This year 's conference theme emphasizes infectious disease dynamics in multi-host multi-pathogen communities. Talks will concentrate around four key areas: (1) Dynamics of multi-host pathogens, (2) Co-infections and multi-pathogen interactions, (3) Multiple transmission modes and other heterogeneities, and (4) Pathogen emergence and control.

Registration for the conference and workshops will open in February 2009 (please do not register before this time). A modest registration fee ($60 for faculty and $30 for graduate students and postdocs) will cover anticipated costs for refreshments and events associated with this meeting, including Wednesday evening reception, Friday night dinner, and transportation and lunch for the Saturday hike.

We ask that workshop applications be submitted by March 15, and conference applications by April 1. As in previous years, attendance will be limited. We also invite applications for poster presentations and contributed talks, with talk applications (indicated on the registration forms) requested by March 15. For those coming from out of town, we have provided travel and lodging information on the conference website. Blocks of rooms at three local hotels in close proximity to the conference venue have been set aside; to qualify for the block rate, you must call to reserve a room on or before April 20.
