Five Plenaries, three Parallel Sessions, four Parallel Themes divided into three sections, a Breakfast Session, a hundred speakers, seventeen Side events, the same amount of Satellite events, and a couple of Site visits. And the Citizen Programme. ICRI 2022 will be definitely rich.
After two years of strangling pandemic, the Programme Committee decided right at the beginning that ICRI 2022 must reflect this period of uncertainty. The pandemic has influenced the programme both in terms of content, with COVID-19 and other infectious diseases forming part of the Grand Societal Challenges themes, but also in the sense that the conference has to compensate participants for a period during which face-to-face meetings were not possible.
The week from 17 to 21 October will offer a packed programme, which will include not only the usual ICRI Plenary and Parallel sessions from 19 – 21 October but also Side events and Satellite events. While Side events, among them the Grand Opening of the CELSPAC Biobank organised by Masaryk University´s own RECETOX for instance, will take place in Brno on Wednesday morning and evening and Friday afternoon, outside of ICRI 2022 main programme, some of the Satellite events – present, virtual and hybrid – will take place in September under the auspices of the conference at other sites like Buenos Aires, which will host the annual gathering of Global BioImaging.
At the same time, the Programme Committee has ensured that ICRI 2022 is genuinely international. The conference will welcome a diverse mix of close to a hundred speakers from around the world, including delegates from the Australian Phenomics Facility, Middle Eastern research infrastructures and the Environmental Observation Network of South Africa, who will contribute to environmental topics. This assembly will share knowledge and experience across the different world regions, which has been the common purpose of the conference since it was established ten years ago.

Please note that some of the speakers are yet to be confirmed; hence the Speakers section is still a work in progress.
Details about the Citizen Programme (focused on Brno inhabitants) and Site visits to Brno-based research infrastructures (for ICRI participants) will be revealed in September.
