About Microbiology and Infection 2017

The Microbiology and Infection conference is organized by the German Society for Hygiene and Microbiology (DGHM) and the Association for General and Applied Microbiology (VAAM) as the joint conference of the two largest German societies in the field of microbiology. The event was founded in Munich in 2000, established to recognize the increasingly close relationship between both associations as well as the growing number of collaborations within microbiology. Since then it has become a semi-regular event with the previous joint conference held in Dresden in 2014.

The 5th Annual Microbiology and Infection conference is a four day event opening March 5 at the Congress Centrum (CCW) and Maritim Hotel in Würzburg.

Organizers are expecting some 1,500 delegates to attend the conference with more than 1,000 scientific abstracts submitted for discussion.
