We are delighted to announce a special Lunch Seminar on Bovine Neonatal Pancytopenia (BNP). Gilles Foucras, Toulouse and Cornelia Deeg, Munich will provide updates and the seminar will be a forum to discuss implications for the development of vaccines.
It is our pleasure to announce the 4th European Immunology Workshop (EVIW) to be held in EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND, UK, 2nd
SEPTEMBER 2012. The meeting will be held in the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh
(RCPE), in the very heart of the city.
Since 2006 the EVIW has been held as a satellite meeting to the European Congress of Immunology
(ECI), this year to be held in GLASGOW, SCOTLAND, UK, 5th
SEPTEMBER 2012. There are extensive travel links
between Glasgow and Edinburgh. To reflect the special association between EVIW and ECI, all delegates wishing to attend both meetings will receive a 10% discount on their registration fees. Members of the BSI can register for each meeting at a discounted rate.
The EVIW programme
reflects current trends and new developments in veterinary immunology. There are three Plenary Sessions comprising keynote lectures delivered by invited, internationally-recognised experts, and six Concurrent Sessions that include invited speakers and presentations from selected delegate abstracts
. There are two dedicated Poster Sessions to allow ample time for in depth discussions and personal meetings. Coffee breaks and lunch breaks will also provide time to interact with delegates and sponsors.
is a vibrant city and the 4th
EVIW coincides with the end of the Edinburgh International Festival
, which delegates may wish to take advantage of. However, please be advised to book accommodation
for the meeting as soon as possible since the city will be very busy and hotel rooms are at a premium. The social events
at EVIW include an opening ceremony on the evening of 2nd
September and a Scottish ceilidh at Ghillie Dhu
on the evening of 4th
September. These events are included in the delegate registration fee. Additionally, the opening ceremony will directly precede a public Fireworks Display
from the ramparts of Edinburgh Castle, a unique experience.
On behalf of EVIG and the Organising committee of the 4th EVIW, we look forward to seeing you in Edinburgh.
