The 7th Congress of ISSAID, International Society of Systemic Auto-Inflammatory Diseases will welcome you in Lausanne, Switzerland, from May 22 to 26, 2013.
The meeting will offer a unique opportunity to gather experts on FMF and the other auto-inflammatory diseases. They will come from all over the world to discuss the latest scientific and clinical issues on different topics, including the challenges of the new treatments.
The conference will be held in the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV), facing the wonderful Lake of Geneva and the Alps. Lausanne is the city of the Inflammasome by hosting the research team of Jürg Tschopp, who worked on its discovery.
Lausanne is located in the centre of Europe, at 30 minutes from Geneva airport. It is a city of Art and the Capital of the Olympic Games.
The organisers 7th Conference on ISSAID, are very pleased to invite you to join the first Young Investigator Meeting (YIM). The YIM will precede the ISSAID meetings’ start on Wednesday May 22th 2013 from 13:00 to 17:35. YIM investigators (up to 40yo) are invited to submit an abstract as the presenting author. Short oral communications and poster viewing session will then allow for friendly and stimulating discussions on basic, translational and clinical research on auto-inflammatory diseases.
Presenting authors selected for the YIM will find the complete instructions for poster and oral presentations here.
