The 51st Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) will be held September 17-20, 2011 at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois.

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. It is the largest infectious disease meeting held in the United States.

The opening keynote session will focus on the the topics of the resurgence of gram-negative bacterial infections, new issues in vaccine development and the role of human genetics in infectious disease risk.

The ICAAC Lecture, by Albert D. Osterhaus of Erasmus, MC in Rotterdam, the Netherlands will focus on emerging viral infections.

The ASM Office of Communications will host a full-service press room with Internet access, telelphones, computers, photocopy and fax machines, and refreshments. Streaming audio and video of daily press conferences will be available over the Internet for reporters covering from a distance. Programs and abstracts, as well as an embargoed online press kit featuring tipsheets, lay-summaries of selected presentations and the press conference schedule will be available in advance of the meeting.
