Following the third conference - Epidemics3 - in Boston, MA, USA in 2011, the organizers are pleased to announce that the Fourth International Conference on Infectious Disease Dynamics – Epidemics4 – will take place in NH Grand Krasnapolsky, Amsterdam, The Netherlands on 19-22 November 2013.

Epidemics4 Special Issue

There will be a special issue of Epidemics devoted to papers connected to the meeting. We welcome submissions for that issue by March 31, 2014. All submissions will enter the normal editorial process of Epidemics. This means that all manuscripts are evaluated by one or more of the editors for suitability in terms of scope and quality before deciding whether the manuscript will enter the review process. Being accepted for either an oral or a poster presentation at the conference does not guarantee peer review, as the editors of the journal will judge a full paper, rather than an abstract, and can therefore have more elaborate criteria.

Top research presented at Epidemics3

At the last conference, leading scientists from around the world gathered to promote and share their research. Here’s how they described Epidemics3:

“Best conference in the field.”
“Great for meeting other researchers.”
“It is one of the most important and useful conferences for someone in this field.”

You can read the special issue of Epidemics dedicated to research presented at the conference for free until December 2013
