We invite you to the 31st European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID), which will take place online from 9 – 12 July 2021. This is the first time the event will take place in summer. ECCMID, the world’s premier Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases event, brings together experts from relevant fields to present the latest findings and developments and share their expertise. The congress will take place in the beautiful city of Vienna at the Reed Messe Conference Centre, as well as online, allowing us to create a unique experience to all delegates regardless of the mode of participation. The programme committee has developed a multi-faceted programme to incorporate all of the exciting educational, social and professional events that ECCMID has to offer. Be sure to get involved on our social media to stay informed about the congress every step of the way. We look forward to seeing you online in July!
