1-3 Oct 2014, III International Conference on Antimicrobial Research - ICAR2014, Madrid, Spain
It is in the spirit of this conference to attract researchers from a broad range of academic disciplines that are contributing in the fighting against harmful microorganisms, not only those more traditionally involved in this research area (microbiologists, biochemists, genetists, clinicians...), but also experimental and theoretical/computational chemists (rational design of antimicrobial compounds, chemical synthesis, analogs, surface modification of materials...), physicists (radiation, nano-emulsions (surface tension), ultrasounds, antimicrobial materials, properties of nano-materials...) or engineers (technologies).

ICAR2014 consolidates a series of conferences, whose last edition, held in Lisbon (Portugal) in 2012, received nearly 700 abstracts submitted for presentation and attracted around 425 researchers from nearly 60 countries. We expect this year's edition to be as successful as the previous one in terms of quality, relevance and attendance.

22-23 October 2014, British Institute of Radiology Annual Congress 2014, London, UK
This year the BIR Annual Congress will cover a broad range of topics, including infectious diseases, cardiac imaging, imaging of the aorta, pulmonary diseases, MSK, neuroimaging, GI radiology and a special session with presentations from the industry regarding the development of the hardware, software and chemicals that we use in our daily routine.

31 October - 3 November 2014, International Meeting on Emerging Diseases and Surveillance (IMED 2014), Vienna, Austria
The threats posed by pandemic influenza, bioterrorism and the realization that new infectious diseases may be recognized at any time, in any place have dramatically raised our awareness and our need to understand emerging pathogens. What are the most important emerging disease threats? What biological, ecological, social and other factors lead to their emergence? How can we quickly detect their occurrences in order to respond in timely and appropriate ways? This meeting will fully embody the "one health" model of emerging diseases, recognizing the commonality of human and animal health.

2-6 November 2014, HIV Glasgow Drug Therapy Meeting, Glasgow, UK
The meeting will provide a relevant, meaningful and topical Scientific Programme reflecting recent progress in the research and treatment affecting the management of HIV infection. This Congress will provide practical advice and guidance to clinicians in the day-to-day treatment of their patients. The programme is being developed to offer a mix of presentation-types and styles from keynote lectures to practical case-based presentations, within a single-session plenary format. Abstract submission is encouraged and abstracts will be considered for oral presentation in the plenary programme or oral poster discussion sessions, as well as printed posters. Time is set aside within the programme to encourage discussion and audience interaction.

12-13th November 2014 Vector-borne Diseases in the UK, Liverpool, UK
The purpose of the meeting is to bring together members of the major UK research groups and others who have an interest in vectors or vector-borne diseases which could be a threat to the UK. It will also include people with wider areas of expertise, such as vaccine development, genetically modified vectors, and also people with experience in the control of similar diseases overseas. The first meeting on this topic (held in 2012) provided an excellent opportunity for UK and other researchers to share their current knowledge, identify important research gaps and expand their collaborations. We hope this meeting will also achieve these goals.

November 22-23, 2014 International Symposium for One Health Research, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China
Guangdong Province China with its dense populations of domestic animals and man, has suffered from a number of recent zoonotic disease outbreaks including SARS and most recently, the H7N9 avian influenza A virus. Guangdong also suffers from complex environmental problems and antimicrobial resistant pathogens.

In an effort to promote the interdisciplinary research necessary to approach such complex problems, public health, veterinary health, and environmental health professionals from multiple Chinese institutions are embracing the concept of One Health in Guangdong Province. With this interdisciplinary approach in mind, these investigators along with researchers from the University of Florida are organizing an International Symposium for One Health Research.

Participants will present their One Health research along specific themes (food security, zoonosis, environmental science, antimicrobial resistance, wildlife ecology) and also promote One Health research among students through a One Health Student Research Competition.

16-18 January 2015, International Conference on Infectious & Tropical Diseases (ICTID), Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
The ICTID will focus on infectious and tropical problems in Asia and Africa, and on other global problems such as malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, dengue/other viral fevers, melioidosis, schistosomiasis, hemorrhagic fevers, ricketsioses, diarrheal diseases, sepsis, meningitis, respiratory tract infections, avian influenza, neglected infectious diseases, hepatitis and others.

The target public of ICTID are doctors, nurses, pharmacists, laboratory staff, and last year medical students. The number of the participants is limited to 400. Abstracts from scientists all over the world are welcome, and will be published in a separate international medical journal, together with the lectures.

For more information please contact Professor Dr. Georg Gossius or visit http://ictid.webs.com.

15-18 March 2015, Third International One Health Conference 2015 "Prevention at the Source," Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The 3rd International One Health Congress brings science and policy together aiming at the early recognition and control of emerging (infectious) diseases, now and in the years to come. Prevention at the source is key in controlling (infectious) diseases that have a growing impact on humans, animals and their ecosystems.

This conference brings together the lead scientists in the field of ''ONE HEALTH" research, to act as chair persons and keynote speakers. They range from veterinary Nobel laureate to fundamental and translational/clinical scientists, working in all the relevant medical, veterinary, ecological, and evolutionary fields of 'ONE HEALTH'. The program is the result of in depth discussions by a broad scientific advisory board (SAB) virtually covering the whole field of 'ONE HEALTH'. Round-tables on ongoing crises, including the current Ebola virus and MERS-coronavirus epidemics, will be among the highlights of this uniquely interactive and cutting edge program.

26-29 March 2015, 7th International Congress of the Asia Pacific Society of Infection Control (APSIC 2015), Taipei, Taiwan
The Asia Pacific Society of Infection Control (APSIC) was established in 1998 and is a multi-national and voluntary organization dedicated to the advancement of infection control practice to reduce hospital associated infections, monitor and control emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and improved patient outcomes. After the first international Congress launched under its name in 2001 in Hong Kong, the Congress is now held every two years.
