Overview

The Federation of Infection Societies (FIS) conference is the largest UK-hosted, international infection conference. It is a must-attend event for anyone working in infection prevention and control, infectious diseases, clinical microbiology and biomedical science.

In 2023, FIS will be hosted by the Microbiology Society. The three-day, extensive programme will include a comprehensive number of sessions, plenary lectures, debates, clinical cases and networking opportunities. Join us on 14–15 November in Edinburgh and one day for an online meeting (date to be confirmed). The draft programme will be published in spring 2023.

The scientific programme will be produced in collaboration with one the Society’s journals – Journal of Medical Microbiology. Tina Joshi, FIS Chair and member of Council, will be guest editing a collection with Tim Inglis, who is the new Editor in Chief for the journal. These activities are part of a wider initiative to build and develop the infection science community at the Society.

Further information will be announced in the build up to the meeting on our social media channels. Follow us on Twitter @MicrobioSoc using the hashtag #FIS23 and on Instagram to stay up to date.
