Dear Colleagues,

The ECCMID Programme Committee has made its choices for next year!

The ECCMID Programme Committee met in Istanbul last week to evaluate more than 400 session proposals with the ambitious goal of building the best ECCMID programme ever! The 30 committee members from all over the world sorted, merged, amended and filtered the proposals to come up with a selection of 100 invited sessions (acceptance rate of 25%), which will make for a well-balanced, top-quality programme for ECCMID 2016. We thank the committee members for their hard work!
