About This Conference

Building on the strong momentum established at the Vaccine I-VI meetings, our goal is to gather key leaders in the field to discuss progress and technological challenges facing vaccine development and manufacturing for global needs.

The meeting is organized by scientists from academia and industry in an intimate setting, and differentiates itself from commercial conferences by providing very high quality, cutting-edge scientific content.  This format is an outstanding opportunity for exchange of ideas among scientists from diverse backgrounds and with a representation from different regions of the world.  Many national and international organizations including The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as well as the vaccine industry have supported the previous meetings in this series.  We will frequently update our website to inform about confirmed speakers, workshops, abstract submission and registration information.

We are developing a strong scientific program, the draft of which will be available shortly.  Following the input from our Scientific Committee, we will organize keynote talks and technical sessions around current and upcoming major issues in vaccine technology.

Our sessions:

  • Breakthrough developments in vaccinology
  • Issues and case studies in process development
  • Formulating and delivering vaccines
  • Vaccine characterization/analytics
  • Therapeutic vaccines
  • Facing challenges: Case studies for key vaccines
  • New challenges, n technologies in vaccine development
  • One world, one health

We invite anyone interested in this conference and in the advancement of vaccine technologies to better deliver vaccines where needed to contact one of the co-chairs of the conference.

Conference Venue

The Fairmont Tremblant Hotel, which made its official debut in February 1997, is located at the base of Mont Tremblant in the magnificent Laurentian region of Quebec.  The concept for Fairmont Tremblant hotel originated with the vision of a modern chateau situated in harmony with its natural surroundings and the colorful pedestrian village.  Architects and designers worked together to combine modern conveniences and a warm décor that reflected the mountain life.  The architects drew inspiration from 19th-century Quebec seigneury, whose grant Provencal-style residences dominated the merchant squares overlooking the outskirts of the village.

Embedded in the mountainside, the village of Mont Tremblant features French-inspired architecture that evokes the charm of old Quebec City, with pitched rooftops, corrugated shingles, old-fashioned chimneys and a U-shaped design opening onto a public square – a meeting place and public crossroads for the villagers.

18AA rustic fairmont_tremblantChasse-galerie sur le Mont Tremblant, a Quebec legend, tells the tale of a group of lumberjacks desperate to return home to their families after spending months in the Laurentian forests.  Visited one night by a mysterious stranger with a flying canoe, they boarded the craft and he expelled an enchanted command creating colorful sparks that propelled the canoe into the air.  As they passed over Mont Tremblant, they slowed their rhythm and lit a lantern to light up the night.  This inspired Fairmont Tremblant hotel’s rustic interior design.

General Information about ECI

Engineering Conferences International (ECI) is a global engineering conferences program, originally established in 1962, that provides opportunities for the exploration of problems and issues of concern to engineers and scientists from many disciplines.

The format of the weeklong research conference provides morning and late afternoon or evening sessions in which major presentations are made. Available time is included during the afternoons for ad hoc meetings, informal discussions, and/or recreation. This format is designed to enhance rapport among participants and promote dialogue on the development of the meeting. We believe that the conferences have been instrumental in generating ideas and disseminating information to a greater extent than is possible through more conventional forums.

All participants are expected both to attend the entire conference and to contribute actively to the discussions. The recording of lectures and presentations is forbidden. As ECI conferences take place in an informal atmosphere, casual clothing is the usual attire.
