Dear Colleagues,

As a result of the current uncertain situation regarding Covid-19, the International and Local Organising Committees of the Equine Infectious Disease Conference (IEIDC) have decided to change the meeting from an in-person gathering in Deauville (Normandy, France), to a wholly on-line event. We intend to hold the on-line meeting, as planned, from the 27th of September to the 1st of October 2021.

Although it will not be possible for us all to attend the meeting as we intended it is still important that we all, as a research community, come together to present our latest research findings and catch up with what other researchers in our field are doing. The Call For Abstracts will be coming out soon and abstract submission will open on 26th of March 2021.

I hope you have been able to stay safe in the current pandemic and I look forward to seeing you (on-line) in September!

Deauville is situated in the Calvaldos department of Normandy in north west France. It is famed for its long flat sandy beaches where strings of polo ponies can be seen at exercise. The equine focus continues with the Deauville la Touques and Clairefontaine racecourses and beautiful surrounding countryside, which is is home to numerous Thoroughbred stud farms. As a result, the town is twinned with Lexington, Kentucky and County Kildare, Ireland. Yearling Thoroughbred yearling horse sales and races are held throughout the summer, in addition to polo competitions. The harbour, marinas, Grand Casino and prestigious hotels complete the attractive location.


Deauville is reached by train, which takes 2 hours from Paris St Lazare station. International flights to Paris land at Charles de Gaulle airport (CDG) and transport links between the airport and station take about 30 minutes.
