The focus will be on current research efforts in the field of epizootic animal diseases of livestock, i.e. different animal species, but also wildlife. Respected keynote and invited speakers will be chosen to give abroad perspective, up to date knowledge and the current overview of situation for different epizootic and emerging diseases. Selected oral and poster presentations, about recent research on the usual EPIZONE subjects including pathogenesis, pathology and immunology, diagnosis, epidemiology, risk assessment, and surveillance and control of epizootic diseases, will be presented.
