Warning: There are an increasing number of fraudulent websites that impersonate ECCMID. We would like to alert all our members and delegates to possible scams and we strongly advise you to use only the official ECCMID online registration for your bookings.


We are excited to support the well-being of our delegates by bringing back ECCMID Yoga breaks for the first time since 2019 in Amsterdam.


Start the morning off right with some meditation and exercise, with our "Good Morning World" - yoga & meditation session, each morning from 7:30-8:00 CEST. Or take a break from the sessions and the exhibition over lunch and join in the "boost up your energy: 45' yoga session". This session is held every congress day from 12:15-13:00 CEST.


On top of that, we also offer an "Afternoon Refresh: 30’ Yoga & Stretching" session – each day from Saturday to Monday between 15:45 and 16:15 CEST.


Places are limited, so book your session now! A click on your preferred timeslot in below schedule will lead you to our booking tool – where you may also book further sessions.


The fee per session is 10 EUR, all proceeds will go to support UNICEF and GAVI to fund their child vaccination and water sanitation projects.

The ECCMID Science Play-Corner


Open call for scientific games


During ECCMID 2024 we are having an open call for scientific games!


If you are a creator or producer of a scientific game with its content based on clinical microbiology or infectious diseases, we will be promoting your scientific game at the science play corner at ECCMID!


The science play corner will feature:

- 5 tables with 4 seats for each player

- A small scale presentation area to present your scientific game

- A cabinet to feature your scientific game


The science play corner is set close to the scientific escape room and in a prominent position opposite the ESCMID World Village.




The scientific play corner will be promoted through the running slides as well as on X (formerly Twitter) to promote the scientific games that can be played. Attendees will be able to sit back, learn, meet likeminded individuals and play your scientific games at the congress.


A small stage will be available for you to present your scientific game and explain the rules as we set aside a special hour that your game will be focused upon.


This offers you the opportunity to have your scientific game introduced primarily during its hour which can be chosen by you.


To signup you can go enter your scientific game:



If you require any information regarding the science play corner, feel free to contact us here: eccmidinfo[at]escmid.org (Subject line: ECCMID 2024 – Science Play Corner information)


Scientific Escape Room


The Scientific Escape Room will continue at ECCMID 2024!


The scientific game will be available threefold this time so those who’ve missed it will be able to join it again!


More details on the scientific story will be shared the closer we get to ECCMID.


ECCMID Art Gallery


ESCMID truly appreciates the creativity of our community. Because of that we will have a call again for your artwork in December 2023.

Prizes will be given away, including a free registration to ECCMID for the winner of the art call.
