The International Pandemic Sciences Conference 2024 is calling for abstracts on research that is late-breaking for the conference on 1–2 July in Oxford.

The scientific review committee will select up to eight abstracts from submissions for short oral presentations in the late-breaking parallel session, chaired by PSI Director Professor Sir Peter Horby.

The research can cover any topic relevant to pandemic sciences including data from current outbreaks such as mpox and H5N1.
