ASM Meetings

General Meeting
ASM's General Meeting, held annually in the late spring, focuses on the following broad categories: diagnostic microbiology and epidemiology; pathogenesis and host response mechanisms; general and applied microbiology (including environmental microbiology); and molecular microbiology, physiology, and virology. Workshops in a small-scale hands-on setting are offered immediately preceding the meeting for an additional fee.

Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC)
Held annually in the fall, ICAAC is the world's premier meeting on infectious diseases and antimicrobial agents. More than 12,000 international scientists exchange information and foster global solutions to scientific challenges such as HIV/AIDS, anthrax, smallpox, SARS, bioterrorism preparedness, recognition, detections, and medical treatments. ICAAC meets your educational needs by providing timely information to improve healthcare and the management of infectious diseases.

ASM Biodefense and Emerging Diseases Research Meeting

The ASM Biodefense and Emerging Diseases Research Meeting is held annually each winter.  State-of-the-art presentations are provided in the biodefense area and attendees gain a greater appreciation of how various research projects are progressing. Participants include scientists, public health researchers and policy makers who need to be informed about the latest threats, detections and actions to take in today’s volatile climate.

ASM Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE)
The ASM’s Conference for Undergraduate Educators (ASMCUE) is an annual interactive four-day conference for life science faculty. The conference allows faculty to stay current by providing updates in microbiology and related sciences as well as the latest research in teaching and learning science. Throughout the conference, the plenary, concurrent, small-group discussions, poster, and exhibit sessions engage participants in formal and informal professional development, allowing them to network with colleagues and showcase their own initiatives. As a result, faculty take away effective strategies and new ideas to implement in their classroom to improve students’ understanding of microbiology.

Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS)
The Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) is the premier biomedical conference for encouraging undergraduate students to pursue advanced training and careers in the biomedical sciences. Join more than 2,000 students in the fall to hear about significant scientific research in the biomedical sciences, learn about graduate programs and research opportunities, share your research, and meet scientists who will serve as role models and mentors in the future.
