Given the ongoing incertitude concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 EEID meeting will be entirely virtual. After last year’s cancellation, we think it is important to provide a platform where the EEID community can meet again, and where young (and not so young) scientists can exchange ideas and results and foster new collaborations.
The meeting will take place in a virtual environment (gather.town) and will run over 4 consecutive afternoons (14-17 June, 3pm – 7pm Central European Time). Each afternoon will start with two keynote speaker presentations, followed by an extensive discussion on the topic (see keynote speaker page). To minimize screen time, there will not be any short talks. Instead we will provide a rich ‘poster’ environment, where poster-presenters will be on hand to present and discuss their research with other participants. The bravest of them all will be able to submit a 1-minute ‘teaser’ to accompany their poster (please see the ‘Poster’ page for more information). We will also provide numerous ‘meeting rooms’ for those of you who wish to get together to discuss science.
The meeting is entirely free (no registration fee) but registration is compulsory.

The four themes are:
- 1. The crazy life of microbes (keynote speakers Stéphane Blanc, Montpellier, France, and Kimberley Seed, Berkeley, USA)

- 3. Diversity of host resistance to pathogens (keynote speakers Anne Chevallereau, Exeter, UK and Jean-Benoit Morel, Montpellier, France)
- 4. Using genomics and immunity to infer pathogen dynamics (keynote speakers Katrina Lythgoe, Oxford, UK, and Henrik Salje, Cambridge, UK)
