The ninth annual 'European Scientific Conference on Applied Infectious Disease Epidemiology' (ESCAIDE), organised by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), took place between 11 and 13 November 2015 in Stockholm. One aim of ESCAIDE is to share applied scientific knowledge on infectious diseases surveillance, prevention and control in Europe and internationally. Other aims are (i) to build a multidisciplinary network of independent health professionals, (ii) to strengthen and expand the international response capacity against communicable disease, and (iii) the sharing of experiences on translating evidence from epidemiological and microbiological investigations into actions leading to public health protection. .
