The 1st International Electronic Conference on Antibiotics, The Equal Power of Antibiotics and Antimicrobial Resistance (ECA2021), chaired by Prof. Dr. John E. Gustafson, will be held on https://eca2021.sciforum.net from 8 to 17 May 2021.
This conference aims to provide leading scientists working in the field of antibiotics with a robust common platform through which to share and discuss the latest research and to promote the advancement of this exciting and rapidly changing field. We hope to encourage discovery across the discipline as we cover the following four broad themes in sessions A–E, as listed below:
- Antimicrobial Resistance Mechanisms and Intrinsic Microbial Factors Contributing to Resistance
- Antimicrobial Development, Stewardship and Susceptibility Testing
- The Epidemiology and Prevention of Infections Caused by Antimicrobial-Resistant Pathogens: Future Threats
- Antiviral Therapies: Impact in the New Era of the COVID-19 Pandemic
We are pleased to invite the global community of scholars to join ECA2021 to present their latest antibiotics research and development and share novel ideas on the multidisciplinary aspects of the research and development of antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance-related topics. Thanks to the flexibility of our innovative electronic platform, you are welcome to both upload and present your work and to attend the conference completely free of charge.
We are also considering creating a Special Issue for selected conference papers in our journal Antibiotics (ISSN 2079-6382, IF 3.893, https://www.mdpi.com/journal/antibiotics). Papers published in this Special Issue, should one be launched, would receive a 30% discount on the article processing charge.
ECA2021 offers you the opportunity to participate in an international scholarly conference without the concerns and expense of travelling—all you need is access to the Internet. During the conference period, you will be able to upload papers, posters, presentations (including videos) and comment on other presentations, as well as engage with fellow scholars in real time. In this way, the conference offers a novel opportunity to exchange opinions and views within the scholarly community and to discuss the papers and latest research in a discussion forum.
Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by 28th February 2021 online in the section “Conference Calls” (https://eca2021.sciforum.net). After abstracts are accepted, please submit the full paper by 1st April 2021.
