SCI. 27/11/19 Designing a syndromic bovine mortality surveillance system: lessons learned from the one-year test of the French OMAR alert tool. 1Agence Nationale de Sécurité Sanitaire de l’Alimentation, de l’Environnement et du Travail (ANSES), France 2Other, France 3Ministère de l'Agriculture (France), France Between May 2018 and May 2019, a syndromic bovine mortality surveillance system (OMAR) was tested in 10 volunteer French départements (French intermediate-level administrative unit) to assess its performance in real conditions, as well as the human and financial resources needed to ensure normal functioning.The system is based on the automated weekly analysis of the number of cattle deaths reported by renderers in the Fallen Stock Data Interchange Database (FSDI) established in January 2011.
In our system, every Thursday, the number of deaths is grouped by ISO week and small surveillance areas and then analyzed using traditional time-series analysis steps (cleaning, prediction, signal detection).

SCI. 05/11/19 Simulation Based Evaluation of Time Series for Syndromic Surveillance of Cattle in Switzerland. Introduction Early warning systems are critically important for controlling emerging or reemerging diseases.
Dealing with a disease epidemic in its early stages is easier and more economical than dealing with an epidemic that has become large and widespread (1, 2). Traditional passive early detection systems rely on reports submitted to veterinary public health authorities by various healthcare stakeholders when they observe suspect cases in the field. This surveillance activity covers a large part of the animal population and the costs associated with data collection and analysis are relatively low (3–5). However, the performance of these passive surveillance systems suffers from frequent under-reporting due to the lack of stakeholder awareness, especially regarding emerging diseases, and fear of the consequences of reporting a disease occurrence (4, 5).

Dórea, DVM, PhD*, Ann Lindberg, DVM, PhD, Associate Professor, Diplom. ECVPH and Marianne Elvander, DVM, PhD, Professor Department of Disease Control and Epidemiology, National Veterinary Institute (SVA), Uppsala, Sweden Abstract Background: We describe a veterinary syndromic surveillance system developed in Sweden based on laboratory test requests. Materials and methods: The system is a desktop application built using free software. Results: Development took 1 year.
Discussion: Besides the demonstrated benefit for disease surveillance, the system contributed to improving data quality and communication between the diagnostic departments and the epidemiology department.

Abstract Two vector borne diseases, caused by the Bluetongue and Schmallenberg viruses respectively, have emerged in the European ruminant populations since 2006.
Several diseases are transmitted by the same vectors and could emerge in the future. PLOS 06/03/15 Devising an Indicator to Detect Mid-Term Abortions in Dairy Cattle: A First Step Towards Syndromic Surveillance of Abortive Diseases. Abstract.

Katharina is Professor of Veterinary Public Health Policy Biography Katharina was born in Frauenfeld, Switzerland and graduated from the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Zürich in 1988.
Her Doctoral thesis on the Risk factors for Enzootic Pneumonia Re-infection in SPF Pig Breeding Herds undertaken between 1989 and 1991 was honoured with the Karl-Pfizer-Award in 1992. Between 1995 and 1998 Katharina undertook a PhD programme at Massey University in New Zealand in information systems for the prevention and control of infectious diseases in pigs. Following this Katharina then worked for 2 years in Denmark as a research officer for the Danish Bacon and Meat Council. In 2005, Katharina spent 4 months as a Visiting Professor at the Graduate School of Agricultural Life Sciences, Faculty of Veterinary Medical Sciences, University of Tokyo, Japan.
