Dear colleagues and friends,

We would like to invite you to the International Conference on Zoology and Zoonoses which will be held in Hissar, Bulgaria, from the 26th to 28th  of October,  2016.

In 2012 we hosted the International Conference on Zoology commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Department of Zoology, University of Plovdiv. The scientific event was a success and we received positive feedback from all participants.

The International Conference on Zoology and Zoonoses is aimed at academics, researchers and students from various fields of zoology, as well as microbiologists, vets and epidemiologists. The scientific presentations and sessions will include a wide variety of zoological disciplines. Contributions in the areas of taxonomy, faunistics, evolution, phylogeny, biogeography, ecology, applied zoology, vector-borne diseases, epidemiology, genetics, molecular biology, etc. are welcome. Our goal is to provide on opportunity for a dynamic exchange of information, ideas and scientific discoveries in light of recent climate changes and the associated epidemiological risk for public health.

We hope that the International Conference on Zoology and Zoonoses will enable the participants to network, facilitate future collaborations and develop ideas for further research in a pleasant and relaxed environment.

The official languages of the conference are English and Bulgarian.

Please visit the conference’s web-site for up-to-date information and don’t hesitate to contact us with further questions.

Looking forward to seeing you in Hissar!
Kind regards,
