February 8, 2016 - March 7, 2016
The Epidemiology Congress of the Americas will have a Late-Breaker Session at the upcoming meeting. This will provide a forum for presentations of investigations, analyses, or methods that have been conceived, conducted, and/or completed so recently that authors could not meet the deadline for regular abstract submission (November 2, 2015). Abstracts on all topics will be considered. Accepted abstracts will be distributed at the June meeting and will also be available online. Each accepted abstract will be presented at the meeting in typical Late-Breaker format as a five-minute oral presentation followed by five-minutes of discussion.

Abstract Submission Policy
We recognize that abstracts submitted before the early deadlines in a Congress year may include results that are published before the Congress meeting. In this case, presenters should note that the work has been published and cite the work in their presentation or poster. The expectation that work will not be presented at another meeting before the Congress remains in effect.
Current Topics (natural disasters, slavery/war, indigenous populations, refugee and migrant health, etc.)
