From 2 – 4 Sep 2015 Main theme: Initiation of chronic tissue inflammation ; deadline submission abstracts : 1 June 2015
As the development and availability of new targeted therapies boosted important evolutions in the field of clinical immunology, many of us realized the need for more intensive interaction and collaboration not only with fundamental immunologists and with industrial partners but also with our academic colleagues from other organ-specific disciplines than our own. Therefore, we initiated in 2004 an European Working Group of leading academic physicianscientists involved in clinical immunology, rheumatology, dermatology, gastroenterology and transplantation immunology. Our global aim is to create a forum for informal but intensive interaction and networking between translational immunologists from different organ-specific disciplines.
The key objectives of our organization are:
- Focus on translational immunology with direct clinical relevance
- Emphasis on cross-disciplinary interactions and projects
- Strong interaction between academia and pharmaceutical partners, especially biotech companies focusing on immunomodulation and immunomonitoring
Over the last eight years, we have made a big step forward to reach this goal through the organization of the European Workshop on Immune-Mediated
Inflammatory Diseases in Amsterdam in 2006, Nuremberg in 2007, London in 2008, Cascais-Lisbon in 2009, Sitges-Barcelona in 2010, Nice in 2011,
Noordwijk aan Zee in 2012, Brussels (Masterclass) in 2013, and Funchal- Madeira, Portugal in 2014.
We look forward to receiving your scientific contributions on one of the following topics:
- Clinical immunology
- Basic immunology
Abstracts are considered for oral presentation only. Accepted abstracts will either be selected for oral presentation or for short speed data presentation. There will be no poster presentations. All accepted abstracts for oral and speed data presentation will be made available online.
A number of educational and travel grants will be awarded to the best abstract submissions by fellows in training and PhD students.
The abstract submission deadline is 1 June 2015.
