The 10th International Conference on Legionella

Call for Abstracts (Free Paper)

Message from President

Greeting to all researchers interested in Legionella!

With no end in sight to the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand that the situation in clinical, research, and educational settings continues to be difficult. In Japan, the Omicron BA.2 mutant strain is still prevalent, but the situation in Japan, as in much of the rest of the world, is gradually moving in the right direction. Under these circumstances, we have decided to hold the 10th International Conference on Legionella as a hybrid on-site and online conference. Since the infection situation changes daily, the scientific committee and the secretariat are working together to prepare for the conference so that it can be held safely and reliably.

We are looking forward to seeing you in person or online at the 10th International Conference on Legionella in Yokohama, Japan!
