Infectious Disease

Oviedo, SPAIN | 24-25 September 2020

Clinical microbiology and infectious diseases are specialties in constant expansion and, while great inroads are being made, the challenges remain complex in these fields. Multidrug resistant bacteria (including tuberculosis) are spreading worldwide, making it difficult to treat the infections they cause and posing a very real threat to healthcare systems and public health. New antimicrobials are in the pipeline, but experience with them is as yet insufficient. Likewise, new technology-based diagnostic tools are continuously being developed. Diagnostic and antimicrobial stewardship programs are essential both in hospitals and in the community to optimize diagnosis and treatment with new antimicrobials, as well as with older drugs. Among these refractory infections, sexually transmitted diseases are once again on the rise, due to emerging pathogens and resistances. Other new diseases are also of concern, such as those caused by tropical viruses (Ebola, Chikungunya…) and fungi, (Candida auris) as well as other viruses and molds affecting immunocompromised patients whose numbers are escalating across the globe. Research in microbiology is currently in the spotlight of science. One example of such are studies into microbiome that are able to answer previously open questions. Furthermore, technologies such as next generation sequencing or genome editing using CRISPR-Cas9 are promising in clinical microbiology, albeit their applicability are far from easy. 

 

We therefore believe that knowledge and research sharing about compelling issues and new trends in clinical microbiology and infectious disease is essential. This is why we are organizing the First Asturias International Meeting of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (AIMID) in Oviedo, at the capital city of Asturias, a small region located on the northern coast of Spain.

 

We are happy to welcome you to the Meeting and to Oviedo, and we hope you enjoy the event, as well as the city.

We regret to announce that AIMID 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19 pandemic and moved to September 23th and 24th, 2021. We will try to keep the speaker program and enhance it with new topics and speakers. We thank your comprehension and hope to see you in 2020 in Oviedo!

AIMID 2020 has received the endorsement of the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID). You can see a link to AIMID 2020 in the event calendar of the ESCMID website: https://www.escmid.org/dates_events/calendar. Thank you! @ESCMID #infectiousdiseases #microbiology

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the AIMID 2020 organizing committee has decided to increase the deadline for abstract submission to June 1 and extend the early bird registration deadline to July 1. We take this opportunity to encourage all those who are fighting on the front line!💪
