Due to COVID-19, the 4th ELS meeting has been postponed until 2022. However, and in order to maintain continued scientific interaction and discussion, a half-day virtual conference will take place May 6th, 2021.

We hope that the choice of topics and the active participation of eminent international experts will raise the interest of all ELS members, other research scientists, pharma industries and leptospirosis and rodent borne hemorrhagic fevers enthusiasts.

Besides key-speakers, scientific contributions towards this online meeting are welcome from highly motivated students and/or scientists in the form of poster (video) presentations.

We truly believe this ELS online meeting to be a great opportunity to keep the network going and we wish for your enthusiastic participation and contribution.
