Ecological Immunology Workshop 2020

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but with a shared interest in immunity and host-microbe interactions, and where we encourage the presentation of unpublished results.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.
