New at ESCMID Global 2024

ePoster Flash Session

After the success of the ePoster Flash Sessions at ECCMID 2023, the number of these sessions in the Scientific Programme for ESCMID Global 2024 (formerly known as ECCMID) will be significantly increased, with up to four ePoster Flash Sessions in parallel in the Arenas, giving even more delegates the possibility to present their work in Barcelona.


During these sessions, speakers will present posters submitted for ESCMID Global projected on the screens in the Arenas. These short presentations are meant to encourage discussion and networking among speakers and the audience. The sessions will be recorded, but not live-streamed. Recordings will be available in the replay section within four hours.


Educational Sessions

The well-known Educational Workshops at ESCMID Global (formerly known as ECCMID) will be rebranded in 2024.


They will be called Educational Sessions and feature four 20-minute presentations, followed by 40 minutes of panel discussion.


They should contain review talks and/or case studies that lend themselves to discussions. This format aims to educate while focusing on core topics in CM and ID. Individual talks should be complementary and cohesive within the session. Educational Sessions can also involve case discussions and be interactive (e.g. via polling).
