Call for Abstracts

The Legionella Conference 2019 provides a unique opportunity for sustained discussions on how we can align our water and energy sustainability and public health goals. We are looking for experts to give oral presentations or posters at the event on September 11-13 in Los Angeles.

Oral presentations will be given the day of the conference and presenters appear as a speaker on the conference agenda along with their topic and abstract. Presentations may be accompanied by PowerPoints or other visual aids (recommended, but not required).

Posters will be set up in a specific room and present research and case study outcomes related to the conference focus. Poster presenters should be prepared to accompany the poster to discuss their work during breaks and dedicated sessions.
