Antimicrobial Therapy in Immunocompromised and Critically Ill Patients
Dear colleagues and friends,
COVID-19 is still heavily impacting daily life and keeping intensive care and infectious disease specialists on alert. Tight safety measures and regulations are still being in place in Switzerland and abroad and it is presently difficult to estimate when they will be lifted or at least eased. In consideration of this situation, but also to ensure safety and well-being of speakers sponsors, and registered participants, as well as to allow intensive care and infectious disease specialists to carry out the heavy routines imposed by the pandemics, the ATCIP Scientific Committee has decided to cancel definitively the Congress, presently scheduled for June 2021.
We deeply regret this decision, but the Scientific Committee strongly believes that postponing the Congress to June 2022 will ensure the best ATCIP program, while allowing in-person attendance of faculty, participants and companies.
We made every effort to hold the event as scheduled, but we have discussed and eventually excluded the possibility to convert the Congress into a full Virtual Meeting because we believe this format would not allow the expected and desired networking between participants, experts and sponsors, which is a cornerstone of our meeting concept.
We are now working hard to re-organize the ATCIP 2022 Congress, scheduled for 09-10 June 2022. Stay tuned for further info and updates!
Best wishes for good health to you, your families and your community.
