The British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy is delighted to invite you to join us at the European Summit on Vaccines and Diagnostics in AMR. Through plenary, parallel and workshop presentations we will explore the essential and potential role of vaccines and diagnostics in reducing antimicrobial resistance through infection prevention, targeted treatments and improved patient outcomes.
The meeting will be of interest to all involved in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infectious disease, as well as those working in vaccines and diagnostics development. We look forward to engaging with scientists, clinicians, pharmacists, nurses, microbiologists, regulators, commercial partners and many more at what will be a landmark event in the AMR calendar.

8-9 June 2017, QEII Conference Centre, London
Following announcement of the UK General Election on 8 June BSAC has taken the decision to postpone the above event to Spring 2018.
The proximity of venue to the Palace of Westminster, the escalated cost of accommodation and the compromise that the election will have on delegate numbers has led us to decide that deferment is the best option.
The topics will be incorporated into the BSAC Spring Conference which will now be a 2 day conference at QE2 conference centre in London on 12th and 13th March 2018.
The agenda will incorporate vaccines and diagnostics within a wider programme of AMR and registration will be available soon with the opportunity to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentation.
We hope to see you there.
