2nd International Conference on Infections of the Nervous System (St Denis, Reunion Island, December

The 2nd International conference on infections of the nervous system organized by the International Association of Neuroinfection Studies (IANIS) will take place 2‐6 December 2010, in St Denis, Reunion Island. The meeting will gather and facilitate exchange between scientists working on different pathogens of the nervous system. Plenary lectures and selected oral presentations will cover recent advances in immunology, virology, epidemiology, clinical studies and therapeutics of neuroinfections. Following the 2005/6 outbreak in the Indian Ocean there will also be a number of talks on Chikungunya. A number of abstracts will be selected for presentation as short oral communications.


Topics include:

  • Pathogen‐host interactions in the nervous system

  • Innate and adaptive immune responses in the nervous system

  • Epilepsy and sleep alterations in infection

  • Imaging of neuroinfections

  • Treatment and vaccines for neuroinfections
