Dear Colleagues and Friends!

It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the 13th International Conference on Lyme Borreliosis and other Tick-Borne Diseases (ICLB 2013), which will be held in Boston, Massachusetts August 18-21, 2013.

The program of the ICLB 2013 will reflect interconnections between human beings, vectors, and microbes and the progress that has been made in the basic understanding of these interactions. The program will cover the key topics and latest findings in basic research, laboratory and clinical aspects of the diseases, prevention and therapy, being addressed from a truly interdisciplinary perspective.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Boston, and to experience a scientifically rewarding and personally enriching meeting.
