TB Notes 2, 2003

December 11, 2002

The 34th IUATLD World Conference on Lung Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are pleased to announce co-sponsorship of a LATE-BREAKER session related to tuberculosis (TB).

All aspects of TB control, elimination, and research (including basic and clinical science, epidemiology, social, behavioral, psychosocial, educational aspects, health care delivery and public health) are welcomed for presentation during the late-breaker session. In keeping with the spirit of a late-breaker session we ask that only new, innovative, and significant findings that have occurred as of May 1, 2003, or for which information has just become available, be submitted for late-breaker presentations in the form of a 1-page electronic file.

The late-breaker session will consist of 8 oral presentations of 10 minutes each, followed by 5 minutes of questions. The presentations will be selected from abstracts submitted to the late-breaker co-chairs by July 18, 2003. Persons submitting abstracts will be notified of acceptance or rejection of their abstract by August 4, 2003.

A small number of travel grants are available for presenters of accepted abstracts who require funding to attend the conference. If you intend to request support, an indication of your desire and rationale for consideration for a travel grant must be submitted with the abstract. The reviewing committee will be blinded to the request for travel funds.

Submissions should include a cover letter with i) a statement that the work has not been previously submitted for consideration to the general portion of the IUATLD meeting, ii) the date by which the work/analysis was mostly complete, iii) a request and rationale for travel support if so desired, and iv) the address, phone and FAX number, and e-mail address where the submitter may be contacted the week of July 21, 2003.
