African swine fever (ASF) is a highly contagious viral pig disease. ASF exemplifies great economic and scientific challenge that can be addressed only with best possible international collaboration and implementation of science-informed decisions. If not contained, the spread  of African Swine Fever ASF will spell global economic disaster. The workshop will focus on science to science and science-government collaboration on ASF containment. Combating ASF requires partnership of researchers representing different fields (chiefly applied ecologists and veterinarians), which not always share the same perspectives. The workshop will focus on methods of overcoming differences between scientific domains and communicating the compromise to the decision-makers. The workshop will also tackle the problem of communication with general public. Mass reduction of population of wild boars and pig stocks have sparked a public outrage. On top of it, a very strict measures of biosecurity enforced in agriculture creates significant social tensions, particularly in rural areas. All these requires skillful communication with the society, which is generally lacking across many countries. The problem is of general nature and applies to any other biosecurity issue.
