More information about the ESCAIDE call for abstracts

ESCAIDE 2023 welcomes abstracts in all areas applied to infectious disease and public health. These areas include epidemiology, microbiology, virology, immunology, social sciences, science communication, the application of tools and methods to support infectious disease interventions and more. We encourage submissions that inform public health actions, introduce new ideas, and bring new understandings to the field.

Submitting an abstract to ESCAIDE gives you an opportunity to present your work to public health professionals from Europe and around the globe, while sharing experiences and knowledge that can benefit the whole public health community and beyond.

ESCAIDE 2023 will take place with a physical audience in Barcelona and be live-streamed online, allowing both audiences to ask questions. We encourage abstract presenters to present in-person, but remote presentation is also possible.

A second call, for submission of late breakers, is open from 7 September to 18 September (23:59 CET).
