We invite you to join us at the 20th Lancefield International Symposium on Streptococci and Streptococcal Diseases to be held in Fiji from the 16th to 20th October 2017.

The 20th LISSSD will continue the tradition of linking laboratory excellence with high quality clinical and epidemiologic studies of streptococcal infections, but will bring a fresh and forward-looking approach with a focus on cutting-edge science, and on streptococcal disease in endemic regions. The meeting will especially encourage up-and-coming researchers by providing special opportunities for these researchers to attend at a lower cost as well as presenting in a dedicated session. 

The 20th LISSSD will be held in the stunning location of the Sofitel Hotel on Denarau Island on the west coast of Fiji, providing a beautiful and relaxing setting to discuss research ideas and collaboration, and providing easy access to some of the most picturesque islands in the world.

On behalf of the Organising and Scientific Committee

Associate Professor Joseph Kado & Associate Professor Andrew Steer, Co-Chairs
Professor Mark Walker and Professor Pierre Smeesters, Vice Co-Chairs

We look forward to welcoming you to the meeting in 2017!
