Conference Topics:

  • Genetics, genomics, proteomics, population biology, mathematical modeling and bioinformatics. Submissions can deal with the host, the pathogen, or the vector in case of vector-borne diseases
  • Host + pathogen or pathogen + vector (co-evolution)
  • All pathogens, including: viruses; parasitic protozoa; helminthes; fungal organisms and prions
  • All infectious models, including those of veterinary or agronomical relevance
  • Cancer and infectious diseases

Together, the MEEGID congress series and its companion journal, Infection, Genetics and Evolution represent the main forum for cross-fertilization between evolutionary science and biomedical research on infectious diseases.

Attendance at this conference will enable you to access unique, high-quality content, learn about the latest developments in infectious diseases and epidemiology research from experts in the field, present your latest research to your peers and network with an interdisciplinary group from around the world - including academics and researchers,
as well as health and industry professionals.

What previous delegates said:
“This is the most important conference regarding worldwide evolutionary trends in current infectious agents.”
“I appreciated the broad representation of different biological systems and their associated evolutionary mechanisms.”
“High academic level of the speakers.”
