5th International Clostridium difficile Symposium
International Clostridium difficile symposium is now established as the premiere venue for the review of Clostridium difficile research. ICDS series have started in 2003 with aim of bringing together researchers from different fields such as epidemiology, toxinology, molecular biology, clinics and diagnostics.
The 1st meeting was held in Kranjska Gora in 2004 (70 delegates), the 2nd in Maribor in 2007 (120 delegates), the 3rd in Bled in 2010 (204 delegates from more than 20 countries), and the 4th in Bled in 2012 (261 delegates from 34 countries).
The 5th ICDS will again follow tradition of giving the recent overview on C. difficile related research and emerging topics and of setting the frame for establishing new networks.
