Abstract submissions now open

The Communicable Disease Control Conference Committee invites you to submit an abstract for the 2013 Conference taking place at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra on 19–20 March 2013 (Monday to Tuesday).

In 2013 the Communicable Disease Control Conference (CDC) will run back-to-back with the Australasian Society for Infectious Diseases (ASID) Annual Scientific Meeting being held on 20–23 March 2013 (Wednesday to Saturday).

This provides useful opportunities for delegates to increase their knowledge and understanding about issues relating to infectious and communicable disease control and prevention in Australia. Wednesday will see both conferences combined to offer international keynote speakers, from both CDC and ASID.

Abstract submission deadline: 25 January 2013

The call for abstracts is now open with a deadline of Friday 25 January 2013. Please ensure you refer to the abstract guidelines outlined on the conference website before you submit.
