Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Asia Congress 2014

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences are proud to the present the Micro­bi­ol­ogy & Infec­tious Dis­eases Asia Con­gress 2014, tak­ing place on 10 – 11 June, 2014 in Sin­ga­pore. This event is an exec­u­tive plat­form for experts work­ing in micro­bi­ol­ogy, bac­te­ri­ol­ogy, mycol­ogy, virol­ogy and par­a­sitol­ogy in Asia Pacific.

    As global con­cern grows over drug-​resistant infec­tions and the preva­lence of infec­tious dis­eases, researchers are look­ing to enhance capa­bil­i­ties for pathogen detec­tion, infec­tion diag­no­sis and genomic analy­sis of disease-​causing micro-​organisms. The con­gress brings together lead­ing experts in the field of micro­bial genomics, clin­i­cal micro­bi­ol­ogy, infec­tious dis­eases and micro­bial diag­nos­tics, to dis­cuss ground-​breaking tech­nolo­gies and game-​changing case studies.

    Day One of the event has a strong tech­nol­ogy focus; del­e­gates will hear dis­cus­sion of the lat­est tech­no­log­i­cal break­throughs in pathogen detec­tion, micro­bial iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and mol­e­c­u­lar diag­nos­tics for infec­tious dis­eases. Experts will also dis­cuss press­ing issues in clin­i­cal micro­bi­ol­ogy: detect­ing antibi­otic resis­tance, analysing polymi­cro­bial inter­ac­tions and devel­op­ing new antimicrobials.

    Day Two will cover NGS appli­ca­tions in micro­bi­ol­ogy, includ­ing micro­bial genome sequenc­ing, pathogen gene expres­sion analy­sis and genome assem­bly. Del­e­gates will also hear new infec­tion case stud­ies – top­ics include global strate­gies to com­bat emerg­ing dis­eases, pre­ven­tion and con­trol of zoonotic dis­eases and updates con­cern­ing recent dis­ease out­breaks in Asia Pacific.

    Con­gress Agenda

    In keep­ing with Oxford Global’s highly suc­cess­ful con­gress series, an expert panel of over 40 speak­ers will present a full con­fer­ence pro­gramme cov­er­ing the top­ics out­lined below:

    Sub­mit a poster

    For atten­dees inter­ested in sub­mit­ting a poster, there are oppor­tu­ni­ties now avail­able. Your poster pre­sen­ta­tion will be located in the exhi­bi­tion room for two days along­side other posters from senior sci­en­tists work­ing in indus­try and academia.

    How to sub­mit your poster

    We will require:

    • Poster title, Abstract (200 words or less)
    • Prin­ci­pal author, Organisation
    • Mail­ing address
    • Email, Tele­phone, Fax
    • Addi­tional authors

    In order to secure your board space a fee of $250 SGD will be required. The poster should be pre­sented as A0 (841mm x 1189mm) por­trait size.

    To take advan­tage of this oppor­tu­nity you need to be reg­is­tered as a paid del­e­gate over the 2 days. We have lim­ited spaces avail­able, so please reg­is­ter soon!
