Registration and abstract submission now open for EEID 2020, the18th Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases meeting, 14-17 June 2020, Montpellier

The EEID Conferences is a major international scientific meeting that brings together more than 400 participants each year on the study of the epidemiology and evolution of infectious diseases. This 18th edition will be the second to be organised in Europe (after the 2018 edition in Glasgow) and will follow the 2019 edition which was organised at the University of Princeton.
The purpose of this conference is to bring together a very active scientific community working on infectious diseases and combining approaches from epidemiology, ecology and/or evolutionary biology. A wide range of biological systems and methodological approaches (phenotypic, genomic, theoretical) will be discussed in order to confront and combine the expertise and skills of the conference participants. In addition to making a fundamental contribution to our understanding of host-parasite interactions, this integrative approach will allow for tangible benefits in terms of human, animal and plant health. The organisation of the EEID 2020 is a great opportunity to bring together researchers from different units of the Montpellier scientific community working on EEID themes.
The event will also enable numerous contacts to be made with a view to developing and enriching existing collaborations between Montpellier's scientific community in evolutionary and ecological sciences and the world leaders in the discipline.
Early bird registration until 31 March 2020.
