ESCMID Panorama

The yearbook includes reports on ESCMID conferences, educational courses and study group activities. We no longer post our yearbook to all our members, but ECCMID participants will receive a hardcopy in their congress package.

We have received nearly 150 suggestions for our new slogan. We want to thank you all for your contributions. The author of the winning slogan – and owner of a new iPad mini – is Vassiliki Pitiriga, assistant professor at the department of microbiology, medical school of Athens, University of Athens. Congratulations!

We have received a total of more than 4,200 abstracts – including 181 late-breakers – for this year’s congress. For the first time in ECCMID’s history, there will be a special oral session on Tuesday, 28 April, where five outstanding late-breaking abstracts will be presented.
