Eijkman Centennial on Infections in the 21st Century
"Successes from the past - challenges for the future"

December 13-17th 1998
The Netherlands Congress Centre, The Hague, The Netherlands

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to inform you about two planned satellite symposia with the
following topics:

- Prevention strategies through vaccination

- New approaches in the treatment of diabetic foot infections

The data for these satellite symposia will be announced later.

We hope to excite you with this new information and hope you will join us in
this event by active participation in a poster- or oral-presentation. Again
we take the opportunity to stimulate young investigators for their
participation and scientific contributions. Due to several important
contributions by non-profit organizations ( FEMS, Antonie van Leeuwenhoek
Foundation etc.) the entrance fee is low for young investigators.

For additional information:

See our brochure available on request.

On behalf of the organizing committee,

Harm Snippe Hans Nottet
