Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you that today, here in Lausanne the situation is safe regarding SARS-CoV-2 and there are no specific rules that apply to enter in Switzerland regarding the coronavirus. Also, there are no rules at all to go for lunch or to the theater; we are nearly back to normal in Switzerland.

Therefore, we are more than happy to welcome you to Lausanne for the international intracellular bacteria meeting on August 23-26, 2022, at the University Hospital (CHUV).

This meeting is a joint meeting between the ESCCAR meeting (European Society on Chlamydia, Coxiella, Anaplasma and Rickettsia), that was held in Marseille in 2018 and the meeting of the European Society for Chlamydia Research, that took place in 2016 in Oxford.

The meeting is co-organized by the ESCCAR board, the European chlamydia board and the American rickettsial society. It is also supported by the ESGMD (genomics and molecular diagnostics) and ESMAC (mycoplasma and chlamydia) groups of ESCMID (European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases).

As usual, we will have dedicated sessions and talks on various aspects including epidemiology, genomics, cell biology, molecular biology, diagnostics & infection management of a variety of bacterial agents, including Anaplasma, Bartonella, Chlamydia, Coxiella, Ehrlichia, Rickettsia, Waddlia and Wolbachia. We will also have a rich social program with a gala dinner at the Swiss Olympic Museum (including the visit of the museum), the possibility to discover Lausanne by running early morning and by trying the card games Krobs & MyKrobs two new games on microbes, on 23th evening. 

Looking forward to welcoming you in Lausanne.

Best regards,

Professeur Gilbert GREUB, MD-PhD Institute of Microbiology, UNIL-CHUV, Lausanne
