Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our pleasure and privilege to invite you to join the 23rd European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and
Infectious Diseases, which will be held in Berlin from 27 to 30 April 2013.

Both international and local committees are working hard and with great enthusiasm on a programme focused on
the latest developments in Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases. The congress not only includes keynote lectures, meet-the-expert, poster sessions and integrated symposia, but also offers an educational opportunity
for young colleagues and beginners in the field. You will benefit from state-of-the-art updates in various aspects of Infectious Diseases as well as a unique opportunity to network with ESCMID Study Groups and other scientific groups from all over the world. Make a difference! Meet your friends and colleagues, share ideas, plan ahead and
shape the future. Today, Berlin is once again a leading centre of scientific and medical research with one of Europe’s largest medical university faculties at “Charité Universitätsmedizin”. With Nobel Laureates Emil von Behring,
Robert Koch and Paul Ehrlich, the Charité and Berlin itself are steeped in the history of Infectious Disease medicine.

“Be Berlin” - dive into a re-united city with countless possibilities. From its turbulent history in the twentieth century:
its bloom in the “roaring twenties” and as an emblem of the Cold War from the middle to the end of the last century, Berlin has evolved into a global focal point for young individuals and artists attracted by a liberal lifestyle and modern “Zeitgeist”. It became a global melting pot linking people and cultures instead of dividing into East and West.

Find yourself in a world of opportunities at the 23rd ECCMID congress, centrally located in an exciting and vibrant new Berlin. You are cordially invited to be a part of it!

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Berlin in 2013.
