TEPHINET is pleased to announce the abstracts selected for oral and poster presentation during the 9th Southeast Asia and Western Pacific Bi-regional TEPHINET Scientific Conference to be held in Vientiane, Laos, from November 5 to 9, 2018. In total, 50 abstracts were selected for oral presentation and 60 for poster presentation out of 341 total submissions by trainees and recent graduates of field epidemiology training programs.
UPDATE (September 5, 2018):
The Scientific Committee for the conference has decided to have more oral and poster presentation sessions. As a result, instead of the original 110 presentations (50 oral and 60 poster), the conference will now feature 140 presentations (100 oral and 40 poster). The revised list of accepted abstracts is provided below.
With the upcoming addition of two abstracts from Singapore for a special plenary session, all field and applied epidemiology training programs in the Southeast Asia and Western Pacific regions will have an opportunity to present at this conference. In addition to abstracts from the two regions, this conference has also accepted abstracts from Afghanistan, Brazil, Ethiopia and Pakistan.
