13-17 May 2013, 5th World Congress on Leishmaniasis (WorldLeish 5) Porto de Galinhas, Pernambuco, Brazil.
The World Congress on Leishmaniasis (WL) is one of the most important events in the field of Tropical Medicine and a unique opportunity for leishmaniacs to meet each other and interact with exchange of experiences. Leishmaniasis is considered one of the major neglected diseases in the world, whose large scale control has rarely been achieved. This event occurs every four years in an endemic country. The number of participants has increased progressively and the WL has become a must-come meeting for students and researchers on leishmaniasis from all over the world. Brazil was chosen to host the Worldleish5 for having the largest scientific community working on leishmaniasis, besides being the Latin American country with the largest cases of the disease, especially with the alarming increase in the number of urban focus of visceral leishmaniasis in the past decades. The skin form of the disease is common in all rural areas of the country, where sometimes the diagnosis and treatment are difficult. In this scenario, it is not surprising that Brazil has the largest scientific community in the leishmaniacs, as they are affectionately called the researchers fully dedicated to the study of leishmaniasis. In this context, the organizing committee is fully committed to making the WorldLeish5 a unique and unforgettable experience for all participants and an excellent opportunity to discuss the latest advances in leishmaniasis research, with the launch of new ideas and products. Also, we will optimize the possibility of interactions to stimulate broad lines of research and research collaborations.

2-5 April, 2014, 16th International Congress on Infectious Diseases, Capetown, South Africa
The meeting will encompass all of the fields in infectious diseases with particular attention being paid to the major infectious causes of death in Africa and elsewhere, which include AIDS, malaria, TB, pneumonia and enteric infections including typhoid fever and diarrhea. In all of these fields there are exciting interventions underway in Africa, the results of which will be presented in Cape Town. In addition there are major areas of neglected tropical diseases that will be discussed and a particular focus will be on the largely uncounted burden of nosocomial infections in developing countries. The ISID has always had its focus on the global burden of infectious diseases and it is important for us to announce our return to Africa some 20 years after the last meeting of the Society there in Kenya in 1992.
