5th European Congress of Immunology - ECI
The 5th ECI will cover all fields of modern immunology, ranging from innate memory and tissue specific regulation of T and B cell differentiation to unsupervised analyses of big data for diagnostics and combinational immunomodulatory biologicals.In the meeting we will specifically dedicate sessions to identify new discoveries in fundamental immunology that hold diagnostic and therapeutic promise and to tackle challenges that arise from connecting fundamental and translational science. We will bring in scientists from interdisciplinary fields, like data management, systems biology and multidimensional systems imaging to form beachheads for novel directions of immunological research and optimised evaluations of clinical trials.
Our program will not only enable networking and communication throughout the European immunology community, but also contain a strong outreach section to bridge immunology and the general public. We strive to show that lifestyle, the immune system and health go hand in hand and that insight in immunology directly connects to societal well-being and resilience.
With the 5th ECI we attempt to build an European village of immunology in Amsterdam. Here basic and clinical researchers can dive into immunology, discuss science and form new collaborations without feeling submerged by the size of the meeting. Our program offers 150+ talks by invited speakers, with exemplary keynote lectures and state-of-the field presentations by top of the bill immunologists. The group of invited speakers contains not only established world-leading scientists in basic and translational immunology, but also front-runners in clinical immunomodulatory therapies and up-and-coming scientists, who are changing current immunological concepts through novel scientific approaches. To give ample exposure to exciting new data from the whole immunological society, more than 400 oral presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts.
