54th ICAAC: Media registration now open
Date:6/26/2014

News media registration for the annual infectious diseases meeting of the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) is now open. The 54th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) will be held September 5-9, 2014 at the Washington, DC Convention Center.

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 one of the largest infectious disease meetings held in the United States.

The opening keynote session, featuring John Rex, Vice President and Head of Infection for Global Medicine Development at AstraZeneca, will focus on enabling drug discovery and development to address the crisis of antimicrobial resistance.

This year's meeting will also feature a special address by Constance Benson of the University of California San Diego focused on 30 years of HIV/AIDS. The session will provide an overview of the key major advances in the field of HIV/AIDS and their implications for current patients as well as a look towards where the field is going in the future.

Other sessions of interest include:

  • MERS Coronavirus as a Model for Emerging Pathogen Discovery

  • Alternative Treatment Approaches for Bacterial Infections

  • On the Road to a Cure for HIV

  • Food and Water and Their Relationship to Community-Acquired Infections

  • New Developments in Influenza Viruses

The ASM Office of Communications will host a full-service press room with Internet access, telephones, computers, and photocopy and fax machines. 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 press releases, tipsheets, lay-summaries of selected presentations and the press conference schedule will be available in advance of the meeting.
