To provide to postgraduate microbiologists and infectious disease physicians an updated overview of:

• the pathogenesis of intravascular infections including infective endocarditis (IE) and cardiovascular implantable
• electronic device (CIED) infections caused especially by staphylococci and some other pathogens (e.g. Coxiella burnetii)
• epidemiology
• improvement of diagnostic clinical and microbiological procedures
• the best imaging techniques for IE and bloodstream infections
• optimized antimicrobial therapy
• antibiotic prophylaxis for IE
• choosing the right animal model for research

There will be two sessions to present and discuss clinical cases with infectious disease experts.
30 – 50 graduate and postgraduate students, infectious diseases specialists, clinical microbiologists, intensive care doctors and other specialties interested in all aspects of intravascular infections.
