International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases

Late-Breaking Abstract Topics

Abstracts should be submitted under one of the following subtopics, which are listed under 10 major categories for the purposes of review and programming. Please read the list of topics carefully to ensure that your abstract most appropriately fits your selection.

Note: If your abstract pertains to COVID-19, it should be submitted under the subtopic that most precisely matches the specific content of your abstract. If you do not find an option that fits, you may submit your COVID-19 abstract under the general subtopic “SARS-CoV-2” under the “Respiratory Diseases” category.

The ICEID Scientific Program Committee reserves the right to reassign a submitted abstract to a more appropriate category or subtopic.
