The FIS (Federation of Infection Societies)
Annual Conference

11-13 November 2013
International Convention Centre Birmingham

Dear Colleagues,

Thank you to all who attended Action on Infection being held in Birmingham from 11-13 November.  The event achieved record attendance with 840 unique delegates and speakers over the course of three days.

British Society for Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (BSAC) was proud to host the conference on behalf of all organisations that comprise the Federation of Infection Societies, and was especially proud to deliver a programme driven by  academic excellence that featured sessions of interest to all working in the infection prevention, diagnosis and treatment arena.

All abstracts from the Conference are available open access to all, and we will extend the educational benefits of the conference by publishing podcasts of proceedings by the end of 2013.  Once published many others can benefit from viewing presentations and downloading slides and audio broadcasts.

Dr Nicholas Brown
Chairman, Action on Infection: FIS 2013
