Welcome to Aarau

Dear colleagues,

After a stimulating and successful meeting in 2011, the Swiss Societies for Infectious Diseases SSI, Hospital Hygiene SSHH and Tropical and Travel Medicine FMH decided to organise a common annual conference again in 2014.

It will be held from August 28 to 29 2014 at the Kultur & Kongresshaus, Aarau. We are pleased to announce a multifaceted program with interdisciplinary subjects which will be presented by several national and international highly qualified speakers.

Beside the interdisciplinary main topics the program is composed of free communications, posterflashes, presentations and workshops. The program includes a novel „Meet the expert“ breakfast, and a repeat of the diagnostic quiz which was greatly appreciated in 2013.

We are convinced that the presentations will be inspiring, fostering interesting debates and discussions.
We look forward to welcoming you to Aarau in August 2014.
