International Journal of Molecular Sciences Events
3–5 November 2010 International Conference on Antimicrobial Research (ICAR2010)
ICAR will provide a new forum in Europe for the presentation, exchange and dissemination of information and experiences on anti-microbe strategies, in biotic or abiotic environments, in planktonic or adhered states, in biologically specific or unspecific ways, in vitro or in vivo. "Anti” is here taken in a wide sense as “against cell cycle, adhesion, or communication”, when harmful for human health (infectious diseases, chemotherapy...) and/or industry/economy (food, biomedicine, agriculture, livestock, biotechnology, water systems...). It will include topics on antimicrobial resistance, (early) microbial and resistance detection, enhancement of innate defences against pathogens, as well as methods & techniques.

We now welcome submissions of abstracts for oral, poster or virtual presentations at the conference. All abstracts for the ICAR2010 Conference must be submitted online. You are recommended to read the Call for Papers section to get more details about abstract and full paper submissions.
Deadline for abstract submission is 22 July 2010.
The conference will develop in Valladolid, the capital of the Spanish Castilla y León region. This region is considered the magical “land of the castles”, a land which gave birth to the Castilian Spanish language. Valladolid, the "land of the wines", is internationally recognized for excellent wineries and vineyards, producing some of the Spanish world-famous wines (i.e. Ribera del Duero). Valladolid holds the former home of the Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes, who wrote Spain\'s most famous work of literature, Don Quijote, currently turned into a museum in his memory. You will discover a region which is rich in monuments, old fortresses, archaeological sites, and stunning nature areas. You may also relax in one of the excellent restaurants to be found there.
