Welcome to ITPD 2023 in Vienna.

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

on behalf of the Austrian Society of Hygiene and Preventive Medicine (ÖGHMP) and the ESCMID Study Group for Lyme Borreliosis (ESGBOR), it is our pleasure to inform you about the upcoming International Symposium on Tick-Borne Pathogens and Disease, ITPD 2023. ITPD 2023 is a joint activity between ESGBOR and ÖGHMP and will be in honour of Ao.Univ.-Prof. Dr.med.univ. Gerold Stanek this year, the driving force behind the previous ITPD events and many other meetings.

Gerold Stanek unfortunately passed away after a short illness on the 4th of November 2022. He was an outstanding researcher, a clinician specialised in tick-borne diseases, a mentor, and not the least a friend of many of us.

To honour Gerold Stanek and to continue his ever positive and constructive energy we hope to welcome you all at ITPD 2023 starting on the 22nd until the 25th of October 2023.
