Welcome to the joint congress between The Pan African Thoracic Society (PATS) and The South African Thoracic Society to be held from 12th to 15th April 2018 in Durban, South Africa. This is a very exciting event for PATS that will bring together health professionals from many African countries to address the challenges for child and adult lung health on the continent. Respiratory disease is a major cause of death, disability and morbidity in Africa, where there is a double burden of infectious diseases including pneumonia or tuberculosis and non-communicable diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The congress will offer the opportunity to critically discuss these challenges and to work together to strengthen initiatives to improve care, build capacity, strengthen research, training and advocacy for better lung health in Africa. We look forward to your participation!

The 28th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) will take place in Madrid, Spain, from 21 - 24 April 2018. ECCMID is the most important congress covering infectious diseases, infection control and clinical microbiology. The Programme Committee is preparing a comprehensive scientific programme with keynote lectures, symposia, oral and poster sessions as well as educational formats on parallel tracks. We are looking forward to seeing you along with more than 12,000 colleagues from around the globe!
32nd International Congress on Occupational Health - ICOH 2018
Theme: Occupational Health and Wellbeing: linking research to practice
Through the collaboration of the ICOH Scientific Committees, Board Members & Regional/National Secretaries to offer an exciting ICOH 2018 offers an exciting and all-encompassing programme. Through Plenary, Semi-Plenary, Special Sessions, Worksite visits, Workshops, Oral & Poster sessions ICOH 2018 will cover a wide range of occupational, safety and health topics demonstrating how research translates into excellence in practice. ICOH 2018 aim's to advance research and evidence-based approaches in occupational safety and health by promoting local, regional and global examples. The Congress will take place from the 29 April to 4 May 2018 in the state of the art city centre Convention Centre Dublin, Ireland. Visit www.icoh2018.org for more information or contact email@example.com for queries.
We will offer you a diversified scientific program as well as a place for networking and an interesting sponsor exhibition. The scientific committee is planning for two parallel sessions including a regional theme of tickborne diseases. The conference will reflect the multi-disciplinary nature of travel health from the basic knowledge to the latest research and including both nurses, clinicians, academics and students.
See you in beautiful Stockholm!

Economists have shown a rapidly growing interest in the relationship between environment and health. The topic has gained increased relevance in recent years with emerging global climate change (e.g. warming temperatures and extreme weather events), but also due to new insights on the detriments of environmental pollution (e.g. water and air pollution, toxins). Yet the various pathways between environmental factors, human health, child development and labour productivity are not well understood. More research is needed in order to understand the causal pathways and to identify policy interventions suitable to enhance human health and social welfare.
It is the aim of the conference to provide a forum for health economists, bringing together frontier research, which contributes to a deeper understanding of how the environment shapes health and socioeconomic outcomes.

Papers should be sent in pdf format by 28 February 2018to firstname.lastname@example.org. Contributions from young researchers are encouraged. There is no registration fee for the conference.
Diffusion of knowledge is the most promising path for the advancement of Science. Spreading the knowledge that is already established opens spaces for new discussions and discoveries, which guide the next challenges in the area of Toxicology based on the concerns of the scientific community. What was once summarized in forensic studies, today is the search for longevity and life quality. The current challenges are focused on reducing the toxicological effects in different living systems, while the type of exposure and amount of potential toxic agents are increasing in exposures to xenobiotic at the nanoscale.
In this context, the theme of the 2nd ToxiLatin is the modern Toxicology focused on health and prevention. Important national and international scientists are going to participate in this Congress in order to discuss and reduce the frontiers of knowledge on the use of technologies intended for potential strategies to prevent chronic noncommunicable diseases caused by chemical agents. Nanotoxicology will once again be a highlight of the Congress, thus we can move forward in ensuring the safe use of nano-drugs that can revolutionize innumerous medical treatments, such as cancer therapy.
Modern Toxicology diffuses, discusses and advances to improve the quality of human life using modern resources, alternative models and multidisciplinarity, which is peculiar to this Science. Therefore, you are invited to participate in this important Congress, which was prepared by Brazilian and international scientists, thereby ensuring that discussions and advances at the frontier of knowledge on a national and international level can be realized. Come and join us!
