14th ICID - Miami, Florida, USA - March 9-12, 2010
  Held at the James L. Knight International Center (400 SE 2nd Avenue)

Welcome to the 14th ICID Website!

Dear Members, Colleagues, Sponsors and Friends:

In this ever shrinking world where people, products and pathogens move rapidly around the globe, our collective expertise and experience will enable us to find answers to the infectious disease challenges confronting us all. It is in this shared spirit of scientific excellence and collegial collaboration that preparations have begun for the 14th International Congress on Infectious Diseases to be held in Miami, Florida from March 9-12, 2010. Building on the unqualified successes of our most recent biannual meetings in Lisbon and Kuala Lumpur, the International Society for Infectious Diseases is delighted to return to North America for the 14th ICID.

We are very excited about coming to Miami, an internationally recognized multicultural, multilingual and dynamic city that serves as a welcoming entry point into the United States. Miami also is home to outstanding universities and medical centers, and has a worldwide reputation as a pioneer city in international medicine, infectious diseases research and practice.


Whether you are a clinician, researcher, educator, public health official or practitioner of any of the disciplines that contribute to the care of patients with infectious diseases, please mark your calendars and make plans to join thousands of your colleagues from approximately 100 different countries in Miami at the Congress.

The 14th ICID will continue the unique educational approach that distinguish International Congresses on Infectious Diseases from other meetings, namely a scientific program that runs the spectrum from cutting edge science to state-of the-art practices to global infectious disease control, all presented by a truly international faculty and attended by participants whose diverse backgrounds create an incomparable opportunity for the worldwide exchange of information for the benefit of our patients and societies.

Plenary lectures by world leaders in infectious disease and microbiologic research, clinical practice and health policy will be complemented by symposia organized, moderated and presented by experts in their respective fields, interactive meet-the-professor sessions headed by engaging faculty and daily oral and poster presentations based on submitted abstracts. Importantly, the Congress allows members to renew and expand their participation in the Society and non-members to become members that contribute to its future. The Congress also provides a perfect environment for stimulating intellectual exchange and camaraderie, essential elements for the creation of new ideas and partnerships.

We look forward to your participation in Miami in March 2010, and to working together on the world's premier multispecialty global infectious diseases conference.

President, International Society for Infectious Diseases

Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the ISTM it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the 4th Regional Conference of the International Society of Travel Medicine (RCISTM4) to be conducted jointly as the II Congreso Latinoamericano de Medicina del Viajero (SLAMVI) just before and during the 14th International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID) to be held in Miami, Florida, USA from March 9–12, 2010.

The biennial RCISTM conferences are established as a venue to enhance the practice and science of travel medicine and to foster the growth of the discipline of travel medicine as well as the growth of a local travel medicine society within a different region each meeting. This marks the first time that ISTM has partnered with a Latin American regional partner, and we are particularly privileged to collaborate with SLAMVI (Sociedad
Latinoamericana de Medicina de Viajero).


SLAMVI will oversee together with ISTM a program integrated into the 14th ICID that will highlight travel medicine issues in the Americas and beyond in all the usual formats expected at an ISTM meeting.

Miami has a vibrant cultural heritage and is a truly bilingual city. Recognizing the unique value of its traditions and current place as the crossroads of the Americas, it seems a fitting location for a regional Latin American meeting attracting attendees from all of Latin America.

By partnering with the International Society for Infectious Diseases (ISID), we can guarantee conference attendees a rich educational experience in the setting of a robust and well-established international forum.

We are also pleased to offer the Certificate in Travel Health (CTH) examination to our members in Miami and hope this will also encourage general attendance at the 4th RCISTM.

President, International Society for Travel Medicine (ISTM)

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the II Congreso Latinoamericano de Medicina del Viajero organized by SLAMVI, the Sociedad Latinoamericana de Medicina del Viajero, and we are proud to announce this congress to be held jointly with ISTM in their 4th Regional Conference (RCISTM4). We are furthermore honored to have been invited by ISID, the International Society for Infectious Diseases, to conduct both meetings within their 14th International Congress on Infectious Diseases (ICID) to be held in Miami, Florida, USA from March 9 - 12, 2010.

SLAMVI is immensely grateful to ISTM to have chosen Latin America as the region for their fourth biennial regional conference, with the main goal of promoting the growth of Travel Medicine as a prominent specialty in our region. This is a unique opportunity for SLAMVI to consolidate its scientific growth and membership, by calling all specialists in Latin America to join our young society.


ISTM and SLAMVI will organize a program that will be part of the 14th ICID, focusing all aspects of our rapidly developing discipline with a particular emphasis on the main issues of Travel Medicine in our region that we hope will attract the interest of all attendees. Particularly on March 9th, we will have the opportunity of holding several sessions specially directed to Latin American specialists attending the II Congreso Latinoamericano and as recognition to our language, our partnering associations have honored us to have Spanish and Portuguese as the official languages of these sessions.

On behalf of SLAMVI, our special thanks to ISID for their generous proposal for this joint meeting and their spirit of cooperation with our society. Holding a Travel Medicine meeting within the scope of such a traditional Infectious Diseases Conference will present the challenge of a wider audience, and thus a higher chance of fostering the development of Travel Medicine in the region. Also, holding a Latin American meeting in Miami constitutes a fabulous scenario for the Americas, in what has been increasingly acknowledged as a developing bridge across the whole continent.

We look forward to a meeting full of creative thinking and productive debate, which will also let us avail ourselves of the expertise of a relevant Faculty and take back home new knowledge. We hope that while attending this meeting you will also have a chance to enjoy the dynamic life of Miami.

See you there! Nos vemos ahi!

Mario Masana Wilson, MD
President, Sociedad Latinoamericana de Medicina del Viajero (SLAMVI)
