ECCMID Infectious Diseases Conference 2019

Amsterdam, April 13-16

European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases

The European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) would like to invite media to register now for the 27th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) in Amsterdam, from Saturday 13 April to Tuesday 16 April 2019. Registration for bona fide journalists is free.

The world's leading experts will come together to discuss the latest developments in infectious diseases, infection control and clinical microbiology at this, the world's largest, most comprehensive and most influential conference combining these topics.

With almost 12,000 attendees, the scientific programme includes symposia, keynote lectures, meet-the-expert sessions and workshops. Renowned speakers from around the world will present the latest cutting-edge research as well as overviews of recent developments. Topics will include climate change and infectious diseases, viral and bacterial infection and disease, antimicrobial resistance, diagnostics, new antimicrobial agents and stewardship, fungal infection and disease, parasitic diseases and global health, healthcare-associated and hospital-acquired infections and infection control, immunology, vaccines and much more.

In a world of global travel, shifting populations, the rise in new infections and drug-resistant infections, this congress plays a vital role in sharing the very latest developments in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases.

In particular, the late-breaking presentations, where researchers submit their abstracts after the normal deadline for the congress, will offer discussions on the very latest, up-to-the-minute developments with the potential to change medical practice and patient care.

ESCMID welcomes the interest of the press and is happy to provide full assistance to journalists attending ECCMID 2019 in Amsterdam, or those using the congress website as a resource in their coverage of clinical microbiology and infectious disease.

There will be a fully staffed media centre, and press releases issued covering all four days of the congress.
