The 9th PMEN meeting was held in Alice Springs, Australia during ISPPD5 in April 2006. New clones were included into the Network (clones 27 through 43, the type strains need to be confirmed and made available through ATCC) and details can be found at Clone Collection link.

The PMEN has decided to include major invasive antibiotic-susceptible clones that have a wide geographic spread.  Potential candidate clones and information can be submitted to curator Lesley McGee.

The 10th PMEN meeting is scheduled for the 6th International Symposium on Pneumococci and Pneumococcal Disease (ISPPD) which will take place in Reykjavík in Iceland from June 9th to 12th, 2008.  Members will meet on Monday June 9th at the conference venue, Room K, second floor Hilton Reykjavík Nordica from 12:15 – 1:30pm.
