16th International Conference on Molecular Epidemiology and Evolutionary Genetics of Infectious Diseases

14-17 November 2023 | Hilton Dresden, Dresden, Germany

Submit your abstract! Deadline 16 June 2023

Organized by Elsevier, the 16th International Conference on Molecular Epidemiology and Evolutionary Genetics of Infectious Diseases (MEEGID XVI) will include 10 – 15 plenary lectures, 15 – 20 two-hour specialized symposia, and several poster sessions. Special emphasis will be given to health problems of specific interest to the present world: COVID-19, the spread of transmissible diseases linked to climate and ecological disorders, tuberculosis, AIDS, malaria, to name a few.

Plenary lectures and symposia will also deal with transversal topics, such as population genetics, evolution, speciation, taxonomy, phylogenetics and phylodynamics, modelling, and molecular epidemiology.

Attending this conference will enable you to learn about the latest developments in infectious diseases and epidemiology research from experts in the field, present your latest research to your peers and network with an interdisciplinary group from around the world - including academics and researchers, as well as health and industry professionals.


Oral and poster abstracts are now invited on the following topics. They should be submitted using the online abstract submission system. Abstract Submission Deadline: 16 June 2023

Conference Topics:

Studies dealing with viruses, bacteria, parasitic protozoa, fungi and helminths of medical, veterinary or agronomical relevance, as well as their hosts and vectors related to the following general themes:

  1. Genetics and genomics of pathogens and vectors.
  2. Host susceptibility to transmissible diseases (humans and animals).
  3. Molecular epidemiology and taxonomy.
  4. Population genetics and genomics.
  5. Phylogenetics, phylogenomics, phylogeography.
  6. Metagenomics (involvement in infectious processes).
  7. Evolution of resistance and response to immune systems pressures.
  8. Experimental evolution.
  9. Mathematical modelling of infectious processes.
  10. One Health approaches to infectious diseases.
