The theme of ICAHS3: 'Beyond animal health

the animal, human and environmental health domains. This requires
input from multiple disciplines, including risk perception and
communication, economics, quantitative analysis and modelling,
information technology, and social sciences. Examples of topics
include the growing concerns about antimicrobial resistance in
human and animal populations; new diagnostic technologies, which
are opening up exciting prospects for surveillance, whether it's in
public health, animal health or the ecosystem domain; or the advent
of 'big data', data mining and warehousing.
The conference programme will run from Sunday 30 April to
Thursday 4 May 2017, with a welcome function on Sunday 30 April and
the scientific programme starting on Monday 1 May. Substantial time
has been allocated for networking and social activities within this
Presentation formats include the following:
- Three keynote presentations;
- Approximately 46 oral presentations of 15 minutes + 5 minutes

be attractive not just for animal health professionals, but also
for public health experts, policy-makers etc.

workshops; please see the relevant section of the website for
