Dear Colleagues and friends,
On behalf of the organizing committee, we are delighted to welcome you to Caparica (Lisbon, Portugal), for the 1st International Caparica Conference on Leishmaniasis 2018 (LEISHMANIASIS2018).
The Conference will take place in Costa de Caparica the 29th, 30th and 31st October 2018.
This conference intends to gather researchers working in areas related to Leishmaniasis, from treatment to prevention. In fact, as leishmaniasis is slowly but constantly, increasing worldwide, this conference is addressed to show the latest research trends in this area. The idea is to push forward the battle against this persistent disease.
The conference will promote networking sessions to link the different skills of participants so international teams will be created to apply to funding at international level.
We are confident that you will appreciate the breadth and quality of the scientific program and the city of Caparica.
We look forward to seeing you in 2018 in Portugal.
With our kindest regards,
And last, but not least, we have some of the best in the arena:

On behalf of the scientific and organizing committees,
Be aware of cold calls from Convention Hotel Services (CHS) or from someone named Adam Max! A company called CHS (Convention Hotel Services) is calling or e-mailing attendees of conferences worldwide, claiming to work for the conference organizers and asking for credit card details to finalize the booking of accommodation. If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! None of the parties involved in the organization of LEISHMANIASIS 2018 is working with CHS.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
With kindest regards
The BIOSCOPE Team
