Welcome to the 2017 Federation of Infection Societies Conference-Action on Infection I ICC, Birmingham I 30th Nov - 2nd Dec 2017

Welcome to Federation Infection Societies Conference 2017

It is my pleasure to invite you to join us in Birmingham for the Federation of Infection Societies (FIS) Annual Conference - Action on Infection 2017. We are delighted to be host organisation for this highlight in the UK infection conferences calendar.

We look forward to delivering of an exciting programme that will cover infection prevention and control, existing, new and emerging diagnostics, challenges in treatment and infection management in adult and paediatric medicine, antimicrobial resistance, stewardship, education and measurement of consumption. The challenges in our field are many and multi-disciplinary and the conference programme will deliver education, share expertise and offer insights across plenary, parallel and workshop sessions, in addition to the keynote eponymous lectures by leaders in the field.

As in previous years, an application has been made to the Royal College of Pathologists, UK for CME accreditation.

The Conference exhibition will offer our partners in industry the opportunity to network and showcase their products, and there will be a new challenge for all at the centre of the exhibition - a must do for all visitors!

The Birmingham International Conference Centre (ICC) is a modern, purpose-built conference facility in the heart of the city and is conveniently located within walking distance of the train station and only 20 minutes from the airport.

I look forward to seeing you in Birmingham
