The British Society for Immunology Congress 2020 was originally due to take place from Monday 30 November to Thursday 3 December 2020 in Edinburgh UK but, due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, it has now been rescheduled to Sunday 28 November to Wednesday 1 December 2021.
The British Society for Immunology has taken this difficult decision after careful consideration and active monitoring of COVID-19 developments. Although BSI Congress is at the heart of our activities, by postponing the face-to-face event until 2021, we aim to keep our community safe, maintain the value of the conference and enable the fundamental interactions needed between immunologists in the rescheduled event. A huge amount of work goes into this event and we thank our Congress Secretary, Professor Gary Entrican, and our Congress Committee for their hard work and support to date.
BSI President, Professor Arne Akbar and BSI Congress Secretary, Professor Gary Entrican, have shared a message about the postponement. You can read the full statement here.
In its place, we are excited to run an online scientific conference in December 2020. ‘Connecting immunology in the time of COVID-19’ will take place on Tuesday 1 December and Wednesday 2 December 2020. Abstract submission is now open. Deadline for submission: Friday 23 October 2020.
Thank you all for your understanding and continued support.
