Welcome to the 19th International Symposium on Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Infections

Dear Colleagues,

It is a pleasure to invite you to participate in the 19th International Symposium on Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Infections, which will be held on 18 – 21 August 2024 in Perth, Australia.

ISSSI 2024 will cover many interdisciplinary subjects regarding staphylococci and staphylococcal infections. Sessions will be presented by the world’s leading experts in each of the research fields. Oral and poster sessions will be an integral part of the program as well, and all delegates are invited to submit abstracts. To promote discussion and interaction between delegates and the invited speakers, the meeting’s registration includes the welcome and farewell receptions, the conference dinner, lunches and morning and afternoon teas.

ISSSI 2024 will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre located in the heart of the city. World class public transport, hotels and internationally acclaimed bars and restaurants are all within walking distance from the Centre. The Perth international and domestic airport terminals are only a short transit to the city and are serviced by numerous daily direct flights from Asia and Europe.

We are confident that you will find the symposium’s programme both scientifically stimulating and informative and we look forward to meeting you in Perth.
