Ecological Immunology Workshop 2020

Update due to COVID-19 (14.04.2020): We're sorry to announce that given the currently uncertain situation and because we do not know what the travel regulations will be later this year, we have decided to postpone the workshop. We hope to be in a position to announce a new date in winter 20/21.

Ecological immunology workshop 2020: Resistance, tolerance & symbionts 24th – 28th August

Welcome to the homepage for the Ecological immunology workshop 2020: resistance, tolerance & symbionts to be held at Kloster Lehnin, close to Berlin, Germany from the 24th to the 28th August.

The meeting is the next installment in a loose series of workshops on ecological & evolutionary immunology / insect immunity, that started in 2001 in Sheffield, the most recent one being in Blossin (close to Berlin) in 2017. These meetings bring together researchers with different backgrounds but with a shared interest in immunity and host-microbe interactions, and where we encourage the presentation of unpublished results.

The hallmark of these workshops is the open atmosphere, fostering free exchange by keeping it an affordable, small meeting (~85 participants). The format consists of invited speakers, contributed talks and a dedicated poster session. Long breaks provide plenty of opportunity for informal exchange. Past workshops have initiated new collaborations and ideas focusing on frontier research.

The premises are basic but in a beautiful location conducive to the success of the meeting. We will be located at a lakeside, which during August offers great swimming and canoeing, and a small café on the lakeside.
