We are looking forward to welcoming you back to Geneva, Switzerland, for the 6th International Conference on Prevention & Infection Control (ICPIC), which will be held on 14-17 September 2021.
After the challenging past year through the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to bring together the global IPC community becomes even stronger. We believe that all required conditions will be met next September to be able to organize a safe, interactive and stimulating face-to-face conference.
