This 2nd International Symposium on Neglected Influenza Viruses will retain the format, and build on the success of the inaugural symposium held in Florida in 2010. This conference will explore the latest surveillance data, vaccination and control strategies, diagnostic techniques, experimental research data and epi­demiological and economic impact studies relating to swine, equine, canine and other nonhuman/nonavian influenza viruses.

Goals and Objectives
