Welcome to the 3rd International Conference on Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (IC-CCHF)

Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Conference Committees I am pleased to invite you to the 3rd International Conference on Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (IC-CCHF), which will be held at the Makedonia Palace Hotel in Thessaloniki, Greece, from 27 to 29 September, 2020.

The conference will give scientists from around the world the chance to exchange information on all aspects of the virus and the disease and to report new findings. There will also be the opportunity to compare CCHF with other viral hemorrhagic fevers and discuss common approaches for treatment and prevention.

The city of Thessaloniki has a rich culture, with more than 3000 years of history and many attractive places to visit during your free time.

I encourage you to join us and contribute your knowledge and experience during the 3rd International Conference on CCHF.
