Symposium Announcement and Call for Abstract Submissions

PacifiChem 2005

(Symposium # 50)

Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, December 15-20, 2005
Abstract Deadline, April 13, 2005

A symposium on Biocides Old and New: Where Chemistry and Microbiology
Meet will be held at Pacifichem 2005. Please visit and for more
information on the conference and the symposium, respectively.

Historically, it was the interplay of chemistry and microbiology that
helped to create new biocides and new methods of infection control.
Recent progress in both chemistry and life sciences once again offers
many opportunities and challenges in these areas. This symposium is
planned as a forum to review recent developments in biocides and
infection control. The focus will be on: (1) newer and safer biocidal
chemicals for infection control, (2) mechanism(s) of the biocidal
action of chemicals against planktonic forms and biofilms of
pathogenic organisms, and (3) biocides against emerging, reemerging
and antibiotic-resistant pathogens. This is the first symposium of
its kind at a PacifiChem conference.

Several prominent experts have already accepted invitations for oral
presentations. This announcement is to invite abstracts for
high-quality posters based on original and unpublished work. A
symposium book is being proposed for selected presentations as an ACS
Symposium Series Book, to be published by the American Chemical
Society and Oxford University Press.

While the deadline for poster abstracts is April 13, 2005, we would
encourage submissions as early as possible. Changes to the abstracts
may be possible till the indicated deadline. For submissions, please
visit and note that the number for this
symposium is #50. In case of any problems, please contact Peter Zhu
at pzhu1**At_Symbol_Here**  As a reminder, this symposium is under the
topic of biochemistry. Thus, blending or coverage of both
chemistry/biochemistry and disinfection is essential in any poster to
be considered for presentation.

If your abstract is not yet ready, please indicate as soon as
possible your interest in submitting one by completing the form
below. This will help us greatly in planning and preparation of the
book proposal.
