This Congress will bring together leading authorities on lice to review our current knowledge of lice and louse-borne diseases. A major objective of this conference will be the coordination of research into lice and louse-bone-pathogens. Systematics plays an increasingly important role in this endeavourand this Congeress will provide a rare opportunity for interaction between members of the medical, veterinary and systematic community. The Third Congress will include a diverse array of invited plenary lectures, oral presentations and poster presentations from world authorities.
