The Candida and Candidiasis meeting will take place online as a digital event, following the postponement of the in-person meeting that was scheduled to take place in Montreal, Canada in April 2020.
Given the complex and changing nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision to deliver the event digitally has been taken to ensure the safety and accessibility for all event participants.
The event will provide a vital online forum for the Candida research community to strengthen relationships, form collaborations and present the latest advances and ideas about:
An overview of the Scientific Programme is now available. All times are in UK local time (GMT).
The digital event will include all scientific sessions that were planned for the in-person meeting, providing all those that were previously selected to present, an opportunity to share their work with the research community.
In addition, new abstracts can be submitted for online poster presentations and a very limited number of oral presentations that will be made available.
We are committed to finding the most suitable digital event platform for the research community to share knowledge, strengthen relationships and determine the course of future research and empower major ongoing efforts to understand, treat, and prevent Candida infections. Details on the digital event platform will be announced shortly.
