    • Proceedings of the Brucellosis 2003 International Research Conference: The Brucellosis 2003 International Research Conference (including the 56th Brucellosis Research Conference) was held at the University of Navarra in Pamplona (Spain) on 15-17 September 2003. It was organised by the Department of Microbiology of the University of Navarra. Thanks to the contribution of the FAO of the United Nations and the OIE of the World Organization for Animal Health, and with the special collaboration of the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies through the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza (CIHEAM/IAMZ), the Spanish Ministry of Science and Technology and the local Government of Navarra it was possible to welcome more than 280 participants from 44 different countries. -- The proceedings and summary were kindly provided by Dr. Ignacio Lopez-Goni, Universidad de Navarra, at Pamplona, Spain.
