The 38th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy
San Diego, California

September 24-27, 1998

The Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC), an annual meeting of American Society for Microbiology held in the early fall, is an interdisciplinary forum of international renown. ICAAC programs encourage the exchange of information among researchers and clinicians interested in antimicrobial and anticancer drugs and infectious diseases. Sessions are often developed in cooperation with other societies, domestic and international.

In addition to its scientific symposia, the conference includes special lectures, slide sessions and late-breaker slide sessions, poster presentations, state-of-the-art minilectures, meet-the-experts sessions, and interactive sessions that enable audience participation.

The American Society for Microbiology is the oldest and largest single life science membership organization in the world. The Society represents 24 disciplines of microbiological specialization plus a division for microbiology educators.
