Explore new horizons at ASI2015

The Australasian Society for Immunology invites you to be a part of its 45th annual scientific meeting (ASI2015), the theme of which is ‘New Horizons’.

The event will be held at the National Convention Centre from Sunday 29 November to Thursday 3 December 2015. It will be preceded on the Sunday by four preconference workshops — the Postgraduate workshop, the Tumour Immunology workshop, the Infection and Immunity workshop and the Mucosal Immunology workshop — before the meeting officially opens at 4.30 pm.

The conference will feature an impressive line-up of national and international speakers who will help build an extensive program across the four days. The confirmed speakers will cover a broad range of topics, from cancer immunology through to autoimmunity, ensuring that the conference is of interest to both researchers and clinicians.

The event will include an exhibition of the latest products and services for the immunology industry. The daily conference program will be structured to give participants maximum opportunity to visit the exhibition, network with the exhibitors and pick up information on new products and research currently underway.

For the first time, ASI will partner with the German Society for Immunology (DGfI) for a satellite meeting jointly organised by both societies. Attendance at the satellite meeting on 3–4 December will be open to all ASI members as well as a delegation of 15–18 senior German immunologists, some of whom will also present at the main ASI meeting.

The meeting will include an exhibition of the latest products and services for the immunology industry. The daily conference program will be structured to give participants maximum opportunity to visit the exhibition, network with the exhibitors and pick up information on new products and research currently underway.

To bring everyone together, the meeting will also host several social functions, enabling delegates and guests to mingle, enjoy good food and wine and experience some entertainment. The functions include a welcome reception, a student gathering and a conference dinner.

The ASI has a strong history of attracting a large group of specialist delegates to its annual scientific meeting, and the combination of the conference and the ASI-DGfI satellite meeting is sure to continue this tradition.
