Known as the preeminent world meeting for presenting new information on clinical and basic research in infectious diseases and anti-infective therapy, ICAAC has also traditionally served as a forum for the introduction of new antimicrobial agents. This year's ICAAC will attract approximately 11,000 attendees from the United States and abroad and over 150 exhibitors are expected to display the latest in research, equipment, products and publications in the field.
The Program Committee has invited internationally renowned faculty to speak in over 100 sessions that include Symposia, Meet-the-Experts Sessions, Focus Sessions and Interactive Sessions.
Members of the media are invited to attend and comprehensive media facilities will be available. All media representatives must be registered to attend sessions; registration is limited to a maximum of three individuals from a single media outlet. Please note that videotaping in session rooms, the exhibit hall and post sessions is not allowed.
If you are interested in attending and would like to download the pre-registration form and preliminary program, please visit our website at http://www.asm.org/Media/index.asp?bid=14884. The pre-registration/housing deadline is August 26, 2005. As the ICAAC housing block often sells out quickly and far in advance of the housing deadline you are strongly encouraged to pre-register as early as possible.
We will no longer be mailing final programs and abstract books prior to the meeting. If you find yourself in absolute need of one please contact Carrie Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to
