Outputs
Progress Report Objectives (from AD-416): To support the dissemination of knowledge and data of Avian Respiratory Diseases at an international scientific conference by providing posters, programs, abstract books and computer equipment and to promote the control of these diseases that impact the poultry industry worldwide. Approach (from AD-416): Both ARS and University of Georgia (UGA) will collect abstracts and organize the conference. UGA will arrange the printing of materials and the acquistition of IT equipment for the conference. This project is related to objective 1 of this in-house project: Determine the impact of variant and emerging viruses on the development and control of Newcastle disease by developing means to detect and survey variant and emerging Newcastle disease viruses and by determining the presence of variant and emerging Newcastle disease viruses in wild birds and live poultry markets, with the overall goal to improve the control of Newcastle disease (ND) by reducing the existing gaps in the scientific knowledge that currently prevent the development of more effective control strategies. There were 185 participants from 26 countries presenting data in 49 oral presentations and 26 posters. Participants were provided with abstract books and a computer room to download and practice their presentations.
