Dear Colleagues,

Together with my colleagues (Hilde De Reuse, Institut Pasteur Paris – Francis Mégraud, CHU Bordeaux – Martine Denis, Anses Ploufragan - Michel Federighi, ONIRIS Nantes, Henriette De Walk and Dieter Van Cauteren - Santé Publique France), and on behalf of the French Society of Microbiology, it is a real pleasure for me to organize, in 2017, the next CHRO Conference, in France. This will be then the very first time this important meeting will be organized in France. We invite you to discover the western part of the country: the Atlantic Ocean coast where Nantes is situated, in the mouth of the Loire river, at 2 hours by train from Paris.

Nantes is an attractive city for international congresses, and you will discover the hospitality and the friendly atmosphere of the destination.

For the next CHRO, we will make every effort to welcome you and the rest of the participants in the very same spirit.

An international scientific committee will work to the scientific programme. Under a traditional shape (plenary and parallels sessions), other topics can be approached (a session on Arcobacter for example) and workshops could be organized before or after the Conference. Posters will be exhibited in the main hall with coffee breaks surrounding them; part of this hall will be dedicated to the partner exhibitors. This hall is large enough to consider displaying all the posters for the duration of the Conference.

Promoting the event to partners is very important for us. We propose to organize social and cultural activities in the typical French style such as wine and cheese party for instance; however we will not forget the organization of the traditional soccer game; besides Nantes is quite famous in soccer and its team has been 8 times Champion of France.

So, it is really a great pleasure to host this prestigious conference.

After Rotorua in 2015, we sincerely invite you to take part to the next CHRO 2017 in France.

With my best regards.

Pierre COLIN
