The Asia Pacific Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infection (APCCMI) is the bi-ennial conference for theĀ Asia Pacific Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infection (APSCMI). The first congress was held in Kuala Lumpur in 1989. It was re-named from the Western Pacific Congress on Chemotherapy and Infectious Diseases (WPCCID) since 2012, when the Society was also re-named from Western Pacific Society of Chemotherapy (WPSC).

The Society of Infectious Diseases (Singapore) organised WPCCID in 1996 and 2010. We are delighted to be the local organiser for APCCMI 2021 (www.apccmi2021.com) once again on 11 to 13 November 2021 at Suntec City Convention Centre, Singapore.
