Welcome note

Dear participants, On behalf of the ESCMID Study Group for Legionella Infections (ESGLI), we are pleased to welcome you to the 7th ESGLI meeting, 23-24th October 2023 in Chania, Crete, Greece.

The ESGLI meetings are precious and a unique opportunity to meet other people dealing with this important micro-organism considered by the World Health Organization as amongst pathogens present in water responsible for the greatest health burden. This is also one of the reasons why Legionella has been included in the new European directive on water intended for human consumption 2020/2184, as it must be controlled in the water systems of priority buildings.

The ESGLI 2023 conference will also cover a broad range of topics related to Legionella and Legionnaires’ disease (LD), such as pathogenesis, but also microbial diagnosis and genomic typing as applied to detection, control and management in general and in particular to identify clusters and outbreaks.

Therefore, we warmly welcome you to Crete, the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean, ancient site of the Minoan civilization – one of the oldest advanced civilizations in Europe, with its main centers in Knossos, Cidonia and Festo …
