A Selection of Participants' Testimonials & Quotes 
"Everything was very well organized, we had nice lodgings and it was easy for us to get around for meals and sightseeing.  The organizer went out of his way to accomodate different interests very flexibly.  My co-participants were great and the opportunities to interact and discuss with them were unprecedented.  In spite of my reluctance to go - because of the journey, which was just as bad as I expected - I liked the tranquility of Tendaba. You could have the whole meeting there."

Iruka Okeke, Department of Biology, Haverford College, Haverford PA, USA on Bacterial Gastroenteritis 2006

“The meeting was a unique and educational opportunity to view the study of enteric pathogens from a different perspective.”

Laura Runyen-Janecky, University of Richmond, USA on Bacterial Gastroenteritis 2006

"An unforgettable experience it was realising that the little we are doing in Nigeria could be appreciated in the greater scientific world."

Anietie E. Moses, Dept. of Immunology, University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital, Maiduguri, Nigeria on Bacterial Gastroenteritis 2006

"It was a good and essential experience to visit Africa.  Dealing with human pathogens, we ought to have a global perspective when developing diagnostic tools or vaccines.  Thus I was glad to meet people living and working in a different environment but having the same goals.  Also, it was wonderful to meet outstanding scientists from industrialized countries tuned to the same wavelength.

Andreas Kresse, Robert Koch Institut, Berlin, Germany on Bacterial Gastroenteritis 2006

"The meeting offered me an ideal environment to learn about gastroenteritis and the complications been experience globally with all the possible method undertaken towards finding solutions to gastroenteritis infections."

"The talks made on Salmonella enteritidis and on Helicobacter pylori were quite interesting offering new methods to study these organisms and they gave a great background on the molecular epidemiology of these diseases. Attending them was very much worth doing and I think as a laboratory technician at the medical research council, it offered a great exposure to the scientific community and is a great rouse towards my future endeavors."

Lamin Juwara, Medical Research Council Laboratories (MRC), Fajara, The Gambia on Bacterial Gastroenteritis 2006

"...the conference was important in the sense that it provided an opportunity for scientist from different parts of the world to interact and learning from one another their various approaches towards research on topics associated Bacterial Gastroenteritis. It exposed them to different methods or strategies of carrying out research on important topics like Bacterial Gastroenteritis."

"The conference was organized and conducted well. Thanks."

Jerro Saidykhan, University of The Gambia on Bacterial Gastroenteritis 2006

Meeting Structure, Duration and Venues 

Be it due to a personal preference, or a hectic schedule - a meeting programme of 3 days is too short for many scientists, while one of a week is just about right for some, but definitely too long for others.

The structure of this meeting therefore aims to be flexible enough to suit the needs, interests and available time of all participants.

The programme will be split into 3 distinct parts as follows:

 Part 1 – Monday, May 8th to Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

Three full days of oral presentations, general panel discussions and smaller group sub-topic round table/workshop sessions.

If two or three days is all the time you can afford to be away from work at home, then participation in Part 1 will provide you with everything you need from a strong, small meeting programme. 

Venue for Part 1 - Hotel Paradise Suites, Kololi, Atlantic Coast, The Gambia

Part 2 – Thursday, May 11th and Friday, May 12th, 2006

More in depth, with two additional days of general sessions and sub-group discussions.  But also with more free time set aside for one-to-one and small group discussions, to visit local institutions and to see something of the Gambian Atlantic Coast region.

Venue for Part 2 - Hotel Paradise Suites, Kololi, Atlantic Coast, The Gambia

Part 3 – Saturday, May 13th to Monday, May 15th, 2006

A three day symposium/retreat held at a second venue in the Gambian countryside.  Designed to take advantage of the tranquillity and natural beauty of the rural riverside location, which provides the perfect setting and atmosphere for flexible sessions and relaxed, informal discussions.  Time will also be allotted for participants to take in some of the fantastic scenery, flora and fauna in the area, on foot, jeep or or pirogue. 

Venue for Part 3 - Tendaba Camp and Conference Facility, The Gambia
