August 9 - August 11, 2015

70th Annual International Conference on Diseases in Nature Communicable to Man (INCDNCM), Rocky Mountain Laboratories, Hamilton, Montana, USA

The 70th Annual Meeting of INCDNCM is being hosted at the Rocky Mountain Laboratories (RML), NIH, Hamilton, Montana, USA. The RML was where the second meeting of INCDNCM took place in 1947 and so it is fitting that we return to this setting for a milestone event in the history of this Society.

Zoonotic diseases are the major focus of this two day meeting, which serves as a forum for physicians, scientists, veterinarians, specialists and public health professionals to present their research and findings for discussion and debate. Symposia will focus on emerging diseases such as Lyme disease, arboviral, rickettsial, bacterial and parasitic infections in humans and animals.

Both oral presentations and posters are strongly encouraged from conference registrants, with a strong emphasis on student participation.

On-line conference registration will be available shortly together with the conference program at the INCDNCM webpage. Information on conference registration, preferential accommodation rates in Hamilton, social events, travel and local tourism will also be posted on this website.
