ECCMID 2023 will take place from April 15th to 18th in Copenhagen, Denmark. We will again implement a hybrid style congress allowing for onsite and online participation and networking opportunities. The fan favourite ESCMID Escape Room will return with a new story and puzzle, the Art Gallery will return also to support the artists of our community and NEW this year is the "Selective Pressure" quiz show where attendees can test their knowledge in a competitive game show. This is all in addition to the scientific programme that has been worked on tirelessly by our Programme Committee. We hope to see you all there onsite or online for ECCMID 2023!

ESCMID Summer School will return with the 21st iteration taking place 3-10 July 2023 in sunny Seville, Spain.
