The Organizing Committee members are excited to note that the Fifth ESWI Influenza Conference enjoys wide interest from the global influenza community. No less than 230 abstracts had been submitted by the 15 May deadline, while 80 young researchers have applied for a Young Scientist Travel and Accommodation Grant. A list of young scientist grant awardees is now available on the Young Scientist page on this website.
Submitted abstracts have been carefully reviewed by the Programme Committee members. The final conference programme is now available online and in pdf format.
ESCMID provided a number of attendance grants for ESCMID “young scientist members”.
