The ILI team has been monitoring the fast moving coronavirus outbreak and we send good wishes to our ILI friends, families and colleagues and to all those affected by COVID-19 around the world. We are proud of the community that has developed around the ILI conference over the past 22 years and we remain committed to the event and the wider endeavours it represents. This is clearly a fast-moving situation. We fully expect to be able to hold our conference in October, but naturally we will keep everyone informed if that should change. 
 
To this end, the Call for Speakers is open (deadline 3 April) and we encourage you to share your presentation ideas so that we can continue to nurture ILI.
