After having to postpone our 2021 event and two years of online meetings, the Canadian organizing committee is proud to announce that we are set to meet in person May 7th to 10th, 2023 at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. Originally started in 1986 in Toronto, this symposium has become the flagship international meeting covering all aspects of Verotoxigenic E. coli, particularly E. coli O157:H7, pathogenesis, host immune response, epidemiology, diagnostics, management and prevention. 

Join us for an in-depth, multidisciplinary, science program that touches on all things VTEC together with some unique Canadian experiences (link to social events) in the heart of the Canadian Rockies – Banff, Alberta. 

Call for abstracts is now open. The deadline for submission has been extended to January 16th, 2023

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, we are thrilled to invite you to attend VTEC 2021 and look very much forward to seeing you in Banff, Alberta May 7-10, 2023.

Tim McAllister and Glen Armstrong, Conference Chairs
