Welcome to the 18th International Symposium on Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Infections


Dear Colleagues,


It is a pleasure to invite you to participate in the 18th International Symposium on Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Infections, which will be held on 23 - 26 August 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The ISSSI 2018 will cover a number of interdisciplinary subjects regarding staphylococci and staphylococcal infections. Sessions will be presented by the world’s leading experts in each of the research fields. Oral and poster sessions will be an integral part of the program as well, and all delegates are invited to submit abstracts. The wide range of social event activities should create excellent opportunities for the participants to build friendships and start new collaborations.

The venue of ISSSI 2018 is the newly opened Maersk Tower, which belongs to the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen. It is located next to the Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet) and near the city centre of Copenhagen. See more information on the Maersk Tower.

We hope the symposium will serve as a platform for productive debate, smooth joint research efforts, and mutual exchange of experiences from the research field and look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen in 2018.

Kind regards from the Local Organising Committee:

Dorte Frees, University of Copenhagen
Anders Rhod Larsen, Statens Serum Institut (SSI)
