We are thrilled to invite you to join the Healthcare Infection Society, the British Infection Association, and the Microbiology Society at FIS/HIS International 2022.
FIS (the Federation of Infection Societies) is an annual conference which delivers a programme of infection-focused science sessions. The event is organised in collaboration with >20 learned societies, groups and organisations who are concerned with infection prevention and control (IPC), infectious diseases, clinical microbiology, and biomedical science.
In 2022 the three-day event will deliver four parallel sessions daily and be hosted by the Healthcare Infection Society, and we are delighted to announce the programme.
Call for abstracts
Delegates are encouraged to submit an abstract for presentation at FIS/HIS International 2022 as either an oral communication (during the free paper sessions on Friday 23 September), as a poster, or both.
Authors can indicate their preferred topic and method of presentation during the online submission process. All abstracts are reviewed by a panel following submission and a decision will be made as to whether to offer an oral or poster communication slot. The presenting author will be notified of the presentation format at the abstract acceptance notification stage. The decision of the panel is final.
The abstract submission process for FIS/HIS 2022 is via an online submission portal only.
The deadline for abstract submission is 1 July 2022 at 23:59 BST. Please note that this is the final deadline date and there will not be a call for late-breaking abstracts.
It is imperative that authors read the guidelines before online abstract submission as abstracts which do not adhere to the guidelines will not be reviewed.
