Call for abstracts

call for abstract

Thank you for submitting your abstracts to ESCAIDE 2020!

Following the closing of the abstract review process, all authors who have submitted abstracts have now been informed about the results of their submission.

If you haven’t received yours, please contact us at

This year we ran one single abstract call that was open from 1 June until 14 September. Abstracts were welcome in all areas related to infectious disease prevention and control, including epidemiology, public health microbiology, surveillance, and the application of tools and methods to support infectious disease outbreaks or interventions.

By submitting an abstract to ESCAIDE presenters are given an opportunity to present work to public health professionals from Europe and around the globe, and share experiences and knowledge that can benefit the whole public health community and not only.
