The 2018 International Avian Respiratory Disease Conference will focus on avian coronaviruses, avian paramyxoviruses, laryngotracheitis virus and complicating pathogens, such as avian metapneumoviruses and Mycoplasma spp. While emphasis will be placed on infectious bronchitis virus, and Newcastle disease virus, all viruses from these families will be included. Original research on epidemiology, molecular virology, pathogenesis, immunity, diagnosis, and control as they relate to these viruses will be covered.
We invite abstracts on all avian respiratory diseases, however, studies exclusively on avian influenza virus (AIV) will not be covered. Abstracts with AIV as complicating or co-infections may be accepted. Abstracts should be submitted by January 31, 2018.
Sponsorships are available for the 2018 International Avian Respiratory Disease Conference.
The IARDC Scientific Program is estimated to become available on our website in March 2018.
