SEEC 2012

 

The Croatian Society of Chemotherapy in cooperation with the Federation of European Societies for Chemotherapy and for Infections, the International Society of Chemotherapy and the Mediterranian Society for Chemotherapy is organizing the 3rd Southeast European Conference o­n Chemotherapy and Infection in Dubrovnik from 8-11. November 2012.
The main purpose of the SEEC is to increase knowledge in the treatment of infectious and o­ncological diseases in the region.
This educational activity is specifically designed for specialists in the fields of Infectology, o­ncology, Microbiology, Clinical Pharmacology and General Practice and other health care professionals involved and/or interested in the therapeutic management of patients with infections and malignancies.
The members of the International Scientific Committee have worked together intensively to prepare a programme that combines state of the art lectures and symposia. Some of the topics covered will be "new antibiotics o­n the horizon" by Ethan Rubinstein and the "EBV induced lymphoproliferative syndrome" by Jan Styczynski as well as lectures by internationally well recognized authorities from various countries particularly from the Southeastern European region in the field of antiinfective and o­nclogical chemotherapy.
There will also be a series of workshops, trainings and poster sessions. These will offer an excellent opportunity, especially for young scientists, to learn directly from experts about the latest developments and it will give them a venue to directly discuss their own scientific work presented as posters or short communications.
This conference will provide an opportunity to establish cooperation among researchers and to define common goals and research topics of joint interest for future collaboration.

The 3rd SEEC conference, to be held November 8-11, 2012, in Dubrovnik promises to be an exciting meeting. We hope to see you there!
