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.

Covid-19 pandemic/Postponement of the 4th International Conference on Global Food Security : New date 20-23 September 2020, Montpellier (Former date: 15-18 June 2020)


The 4th International Conference on Global Food Security addresses the topic of food security at all spatial levels from local to global, and from an interdisciplinary and systemic food systems perspective. It aims to better understand environmental, nutritional, agricultural, demographic, socio-economic, political, technological and institutional drivers, costs and outcomes of current and future food security. Interactions with contextual factors including climate change, urbanisation, greening the economy and data-driven technologies will be central. The conference addresses the triple burden of malnutrition: hunger, micronutrient deficiencies and obesity. It explores the state-of-the-art of interdisciplinary insight, addresses the trade-offs that occur - and synergies that can be sought -in transforming food systems. These are aimed at reconciling the competing environmental, economic or social objectives and outcomes towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals at different levels across spatial and temporal scales. Contributions which bridge themes or scales, foster interdisciplinarity and integration or address interactions between science and non-academic stakeholders (civil society, private sector and policy makers) are particularly welcome. Congress organized by Elsevier, I-Site MUSE, Wageningen University with the partnership of Agropolis International, CIRAD,IRD,INRAE, CGIAR.
Early bird registration deadline: 13 July 2020.

Discover the English version of the last issue of the series ‘Les dossiers d’Agropolis International’ : 'Global health - People, animals, plants, the environment : towards an integrated approach to health' n° 25 (52 pages, December 2019)


This report provides illustrative examples of research undertaken by scientific teams in the region alongside partners in France, its overseas territories, and around the world. All aspects affecting health are considered: not only human and animal health, but plant health, the environment, and issues linked to diet and food production.
66 research units are cited in the document, illustrating the diversity and complementarity of the scientific work being carried out from this hub of integrated health research.
This document was published with the support of Occitanie/ Pyrénées-Méditerranée Region, I-SITE MUSE and the National Veterinary School of Toulouse (ENVT).
