ISDS 10th Annual Conference Announcement

Building the Future of Public Health Surveillance
Sheraton Atlanta Hotel
Atlanta, GA
December 6 - 8, 2011

Dear Colleagues,

Over the last few weeks, we have heard from many ISDS 10th Annual Conference abstract submitters, and potential submitters, that the August abstract deadline has proven difficult for many to meet, due to the timing of seasonal vacations and other aspects of the summer schedule. In the interest of presenting the best conference possible and fully representing the work of the society membership, we have made the decision to significantly extend our abstract submission deadline.

For those of you who were able to complete and submit your abstract by the previously published deadlines, but felt rushed in doing so, please know that you will be able to modify and resubmit your abstracts through the ISDS abstract system (you can click on "return to draft" to edit your previously submitted abstract). For those of you contemplating a submission, we hope the deadline extension will provide sufficient opportunity for you to complete your submissions; unfortunately, no further extensions will be possible.

The new (and final) deadline for abstract submission is Sunday, September 11, 2011, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. The ISDS Abstract Submission site will reopen in the next few days.

Revised Key Dates:
Abstract submission deadline: September 11, 2011
Author notification of abstract acceptance: October 10, 2011
Early registration for the conference ends: October 24, 2011

Thank you very much, and we look forward to seeing you in Atlanta!

Best regards,

Karl Soetebier and Daniel Neill
Scientific Program Chairs
ISDS Annual Conference, 2011
