Dear Colleagues and Friends

It is our pleasure and privilege to invite you to join the 22nd European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, which will be held in London from 31st March to 3rd April 2012. We are proud to host our annual congress in the 2012 Olympic City.

The Programme Committee has created a comprehensive series of keynote lectures, symposia, educational workshops and meet-theexpert sessions, covering the entire field of infection-related diseases.

Applied research and knowledge from clinical and laboratory practice are presented, many of them in an interactive way, allowing for an active exchange of experiences from various sub-specialties from all over the world.

Congress attendees will not only benefit from scientific exchange during the formal activities. Networking with colleagues with a mixture of backgrounds allows for identifying new research ideas and innovative ways of organizing laboratory and clinical processes.

To host our annual congress in London during the Olympic year provides a unique opportunity in many ways. We have already mentioned the scientific programme, but the location of the 22nd ECCMID is equally important. The already exceptional setting of this city will be even more vibrant in the pre-Olympic phase. Its diversity in arts, culture and gastronomy may be enjoyed by guests of all ages and interests. Accommodation of all levels will suit all the participants’ needs.

Situated in the well refurbished Docklands, the ExCel exhibition and convention centre benefits from easy access and proximity to London City Airport. The classic sightseeing spots and the inner city can easily be reached by using London’s efficient public transportation system.

Although you might have been to London before, a visit to ECCMID and to the city during the pre-Olympic phase will be an unforgettable experience.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to London in 2012.
