Home Call for Proposal, EOI & RFP Call for abstracts: 62nd ITM Colloquium

The Department of Veterinary Tropical Diseases, Faculty of Veterinary Science, University of Pretoria, South Africa and the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM)  in Antwerp, Belgium, have joined forces for the 62nd ITM Colloquium.

This second virtual edition will take place from 2-3 December 2021 and will cover emerging and re-emerging epidemics, with a special focus on neglected tropical and zoonotic diseases.

Abstract submission is open to all, researchers from the Southern African Development Community (SADC) are particularly encouraged to submit abstracts of their work within the scope of the colloquium. 

Accepted oral presentations will either take place in one of the plenary sessions, or in the break-away sessions, as deemed appropriate by the scientific committee. Abstracts accepted as a poster presentation will be displayed in an online exhibition area.


The first virtual version of the ITM colloquium is a large three-day conference that brings COVID-19 experiences from all continents together. The aim is to discuss and reflect on the direct and indirect impact on global and local health.

For this we zoom in on the COVID-19 epidemics and responses in different contexts to retrieve an improved understanding of their heterogeneity. Exploring the potential of some of the scientific innovations which emerged in these epidemics will also be part of this colloquium.

To get a better understanding of the implications of COVID-19 we will assess, together with different experts from all over the world, to what extent the epidemic leads to possibly sustained systemic societal transformations and ask ourselves if and how COVID-19 is a game changer in the health sector and beyond.

This virtual edition of the ITM Colloquium will offer you:

  • 3 scientific sessions each day
  • Interactive breaks
  • Networking opportunities with other experts
  • Social activities between participants
