Dear Colleagues,

We take great pleasure inviting you to join us for the 9th International Conference on
Emerging Zoonoses with an emphasis on Emerging and Transboundary Infectious
Diseases, taking place in Palermo, Sicily, Italy, on June 9-12, 2024.

Outbreaks of previously unknown or forgotten zoonotic pathogens keeps us all still vulnerable and will remain of great concern as they will continue to cause problems for animal and human health. The impact of zoonotic pathogens was felt profoundly around the entire world with the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Also, in the past year, a re-emerging pathogen, Monkeypox virus, infected thousands of people worldwide. There is no doubt that zoonotic pathogens continue to pose significant challenges to global health security in years to come.

Our conference serves as a platform where we can all come together to better understand, address, discuss, and alleviate the risks associated with emerging zoonotic and transboundary disease threats.

Join us in Sicily, with its dazzling diversity of landscapes and cultural treasures, to discuss the latest research on zoonotic and transboundary infectious diseases and address countermeasures on how overcome these threats to both animals and humans worldwide.

The local scientific committee includes Drs. Cristina Casalone, Guido Loria and Alessio Lorusso who will be delighted to help make this conference an unforgettable event.
