ICT-16 will take place in Belgrade from August 30 - September 1, 2023 

We are facing a time of great challenges provoked by COVID-19 pandemic that raise numerous social, economic and health issues. It will for sure affect the infection with various zoonosis, including Trichinella infection. Witnessing a global climate change and intensive migrations of both people and animals, Serbia is continuously trying to improve measures which will make it  more prepared to adequately respond to local and regional public health needs.  We hope that our gathering under the ICT-16 umbrella will contribute to the world wide efforts to solve the problems we are facing together.

ICT-16 will be held in Belgrade, which is the capital of the Republic of Serbia. This “white city” is one of the oldest cities in Europe and the only capital built at the confluence of two big rivers – the Danube and the Sava. Belgrade is a friendly and exciting city - city with a huge cultural heritage, city that never sleeps and where you can find friendly people and experience the traditional cuisine blend.

In this city where history and the future meet, you will have a unique opportunity to learn, socialize and enjoy! The world of Trichinella, the world of science and the promotion of friendship will be interconnected - in one place - in Belgrade.

Don’t miss the opportunity to join ICT-16 event!

The conference is hosted by the Reference Laboratory for Trichinellosis of Serbia, Institute for the Application of Nuclear Energy - INEP, University of Belgrade. The first information will soon be posted on the INEP website ( ), as well as on the website of the Hotel Mona Plaza where the conference will take place ( ), while a special site dedicated to ICT-16 will be launched a year before the start of the meeting.
