Dear colleagues,
We are pleased to invite you to the 13th Colloquium of the International Association for Paratuberculosis which we be held on June 20-23, 2016, in Nantes. Nantes is a dynamic and very pleasant city in the Western part of France, large enough to offer you a range of high standard facilities (for the conference venue, for easy access by plane and train, for accommodation and for many side activities), and small enough to make it easy to take the best out of it while you attend the conference or the days around it. We will make sure we share our best tips with you there.
As you all know, The International Colloquium on Paratuberculosis, periodically held under the auspices of the International Association for Paratuberculosis, has become a special meeting for the IAP members and for all leading researchers, livestock industry representatives, industry of animal health, veterinarians and public health authorities with an interest in the disease and its related issues.
Scientific sessions will focus on the latest advances in knowledge on the infection course and host response (including pathogenesis, immunology, and host genetics), on Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (including genomics, biology, and diversity of the pathogen), on diagnostic and detection (of the disease, the infection and the pathogen), on exposure and transmission (including epidemiology and modelling approaches to understand the disease dynamics in populations), on control strategies, and on public health and food safety aspects. Besides keynote speakers and oral presentations, time will be dedicated to specific sessions to present and discuss posters in a friendly and professional setting.
Our research group on Biology, epidemiology and risk analysis in animal health (BioEpAR) fully supported by its institutes Oniris and INRA is honoured to receive the trust of the IAP to lead the organizational efforts to make the 13th colloquium an event of scientific interest and social enjoyment.
To do this, we have built an experienced and original group of French and international members to serve on the scientific committee.
For those of you who have a specific interest in getting in contact with stakeholders in France and sharing experience on the diseases situation and control there, a stakeholders' day in French will be organized just after the ICP (Friday June, 24, 2016).
We hope all of you will accept our invitation to join, share knowledge and network at next ICP.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Nantes in June.
On behalf of the Organizing and Scientific Committees,

Christine Fourichon


Chers collègues,
Le prochain congrès mondial sur la paratuberculose, l'ICP - International Colloquium on Paratuberculosis, se tiendra à Nantes du 20 au 23 juin 2016. Il sera suivi d'une journée à destination des professionnels francophones le vendredi 24 juin 2016, qui permettra de partager avancées scientifiques et données du terrain sur la maladie et sa maîtrise. Il est possible de s'inscrire séparément à cette journée ou d'y combiner la participation à tout ou partie du congrès ICP (dont les deux derniers jours seront consacrés en particulier à des connaissances opérationnelles).
L'ICP, organisé tous les deux ans sous l'égide de l'International Association for Paratuberculosis, rassemble les membres de cette association et tous les chercheurs, représentants du secteur de l'élevage, de l'industrie de la santé animale, vétérinaires, services vétérinaires qui s'intéressent à cette maladie et à toutes les questions scientifiques ou opérationnelles pour en améliorer la compréhension et la maîtrise.
Les sessions scientifiques apporteront les connaissances les plus récentes sur le déroulement de l'infection (incluant pathogénie, immunologie et génétique animale), sur Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (incluant la génomique, la biologie et la diversité de la bactérie), sur le diagnostic et la détection (de la maladie, de l'infection, de l'agent pathogène), sur l'exposition et la transmission (incluant des approches d'épidémiologie et de modélisation pour comprendre la dynamique de la maladie dans les populations), sur les stratégies de maîtrise, et sur les interrogations pour la santé publique et la sécurité des aliments. Des sessions posters compléteront le programme pour échanger sur de nombreux autres résultats.
L'unité mixte de recherche Biologie, épidémiologie et analyse de risque en santé animale (UMR1300 BioEpAR), avec le total soutien de ses tutelles, Oniris et l'INRA, est honorée de s'être vue confier l'organisation de l'ICP 2016 et pleinement engagée dans l’organisation de cet évènement qui, nous le souhaitons, sera pour vous particulièrement riche en échanges scientifiques.
Nous avons constitué un comité scientifique rassemblant des chercheurs leaders français et mondiaux, qui composera un programme scientifique original, dense et innovant. Localement, le programme du congrès vous fera profiter du meilleur de la ville de Nantes, tant pour la tenue du congrès dans le cadre idéal de la cité des congrès, que pour les évènements du programme social autour des conférences. Grâce aux professionnels associés à l'organisation de la journée en français du vendredi, présentations et discussions s'appuieront sur un lien fort entre apports de la recherche, des observations de terrain et besoins opérationnels.
Nous espérons vous accueillir très nombreux en juin à Nantes pour partager vos connaissances et enrichir vos réseaux.
Au nom des comités scientifique et d'organisation.
