Programme

The preliminary programme is available here

ECTMIH 2017 will have a broad and inclusive agenda that appeals to all scientists and experts working in the field of tropical, international and global health. The sessions will focus on a range of tracks, each of which will be coordinated by three members of the Scientific Committee (one of ITM, one of another Belgian institution, one international member). For each track a scientific subcommittee will be constituted with institutional, national and international members (see Committees). Within each track, a series of themes will be explored in specific oral or poster sessions, symposia, debates and other formats.

The meeting will start with an official opening session including key-note speeches on Monday, October, 16th around 17.00 hrs., followed by a festive reception. From Tuesday, October 17th 9.00 hrs through Friday, October 20th 12.00 hrs, the floor will be given to plenary talks in the early morning sessions (9.00 - 10.30), followed by parallel sessions organised along the tracks and themes between 11.00 - 12.30, 14.00 - 15.30, 16.00 - 17.30.
During lunch breaks (12.30-14.00) and in the evenings (18.00-19.30), the floor is open to invited or sponsored symposia. The closing session will take place from 12.00 hrs to 13.00 hrs on Friday, October 20th.
