Congress 2017

The 2017 British Society for Immunology Congress took place in Brighton on 4-7 December.  We'd like to say a huge thank you to all our speakers, presenters, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates who helped to make the Congress a success.  Thank you too to our wonderful Congress Committee, and in particular our outgoing Congress Secretary, Leonie Taams, for all her hard work and dedication in bringing together such an excellent line up of sessions and speakers.  In total, we welcomed over 1,250 attendees through the doors at Brighton - a new record for our Congress as a stand alone event.  All abstracts from the Congress are still available to read on the Congress website. You can also view all the photos from the event on our Flickr channel

There is no British Society for Immunology Congress in 2018, but we will be attending the European Congress of Immunology, taking place on 2-5 September 2018 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.  The BSI Congress will return in 2019 when we look forward to welcoming you all to Liverpool on 2-5 December 2019.  

Congress 2016

The BSI/NVVI Annual Congress 2016 was held jointly with the Dutch Society of Immunology.  We would like to thank the Congress organising commitees, led by Leonie Taams and Janneke Samsom, and all the speakers, chairs and exhibitors who helped to make the event such a success.  Thank you too to all our delegates - we hope you enjoyed it and it provided you with lots of immunology insights and networking opportunities.  All delagates will have been emailed a feedback questionnaire about the Congress.  Please do fill this out and return it to us - it's really important for the planning of next year's event that we know what you liked and didn't like and how we can improve.  You will receive your certificate of attendance upon return of this questionnaire.

You can still read all the abstracts from Congress on our Congress website and view photos from the event on our Flickr channel. We've also created a Storify to summarise what you told us you enjoyed most about the event via social media.
