Sessions at ESCAIDE

The scientific programme for ESCAIDE 2021 is made up of plenaries and abstract-led sessions.

The plenary session programme is proposed by the ESCAIDE Scientific Committee, who invite high-level speakers to discuss and tackle topics of significant current importance in infectious disease and public health.

Abstracts are submitted to ESCAIDE and reviewed by a group of reviewers and the Scientific Committee. Those selected represent the latest in cutting-edge research from a broad spectrum of fields including infectious disease epidemiology, microbiology, surveillance, implementation science, modelling, preparedness and more. As with in person conferences, abstracts are either presented as oral abstract pitches or as posters, which will be available to view throughout the conference. In the programme, there are moderated fireside panels and poster tours, in which presenters have the opportunity to delve deeper into their research and take questions from the audience.
