The "ESCCAR international congress on Rickettsia and other intracellular bacteria" will take place from June 19th to 21st, 2017 in Marseille, France.
ESCCAR and ASR are the organizers of the triennal International meeting on Rickettsiae and Rickettsial diseases. The last one took place in Lausanne in 2015. ESCCAR encourages basic and applied research in the field of chlamydiology, rickettsiology and related diseases due to intracellular bacteria. ESCCAR has currently about 300 members (medical doctors, veterinarians, microbiologists, ....) from many different countries. Bacterial diseases studied include chlamydiosis, rickettsiosis, bartonellosis, ehrlichosis, and coxiellosis as well as emerging infectious diseases due to novel intracellular bacteria (i.e. Chlamydia-related bacteria, Neoehrlichia, ...).
In addition to outstanding invited speakers from many different countries, the meeting will provide you the opportunity to present your own work as oral or poster presentation (deadline for abstract submission: April 30, 2017). Moreover, you will meet your peers in a good atmosphere, discover the beautiful landscape around Marseille, participate to the gala dinner.
In addition, if you are interested, you may submit your original Work presented at the congress to the "Comparative Immunology, Microbiology and Infectious Diseases", "Microorganisms", "Human Microbiome" and "Microbes and Infection" journals. Submitted articles will be peer-reviewed. If you are interested in submitting an article, please contact Prof Pierre-Edouard FOURNIER by e-mail before 30 April, 2017 (email@example.com). Please precise the title of the article, the list of authors, and provide the abstract. Then, you will receive detailed instructions regarding submission.
I Hope you will join us!
