ACS Infectious Diseases is a new, monthly online journal brought to you by ACS Publications that addresses the rapidly growing field of research on the molecular basis of infectious disease propagation and therapeutic interventions. The journal will provide critical insights into this fast-growing, globally important research area and is now accepting submissions.

The previous edition of ICAR was held in Lisbon (Portugal)  during 21-23 November 2012 and was attended by around 425 researchers from nearly 60 countries. We expect this year’s edition to be as successful as the previous one in terms of quality, relevance and attendance.  


The Proceedings Book of the ICAR2012 Conference was entitled "Worldwide Research Efforts in the Fighting against Microbial Pathogens: From Basic Research to Technological Developments" (ISBN: 978-1-61233-636-7), edited by A. Mendez-Vilas and published by BrownWalker Press (Pub. date: 2013)
