About 35th Annual Meeting of NSCMID
On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 35th annual meeting of the Nordic Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (NSCMID), I would like to welcome you to Reykjavik August 18th to August 22, 2018. The conference will be held in Harpa, Reykjavik´s spectacular new conference and concert hall, located by the harbor in downtown Reykjavik.
On August 18, the day before the conference begins, Reykjavik Culture Night will take place; a vibrant annual event where tens of thousands of people attend numerous mini-concerts, theaters, shows, shops, galleries and restaurants. In addition, the Reykjavik Marathon is held on that day, a popular event for runners and their friends and families.
The conference program is still preliminary, but we aim to put various issues in focus, including the centennial of the Spanish influenza, the current goal of elimination of hepatitis C, pneumococcal disease and community acquired pneumonia, new diagnostics, new insights to various diseases provided by new information on the human microbiome, infection control in the Nordic countries, new aspects on antimicrobial resistance testing, frontiers in fungal infections and many others.
