Call for proposals for BSI Congress 2020

We're delighted to announce that the 2020 British Society for Immunology Congress will be held in Edinburgh from 30 November to 3 December 2020.  

Our Congress Committee is actively working on the scientific programme for 2020 and has confirmed the following topics for plenary sessions:

  1. Neuroimmunology
  2. Stromal immunology
  3. T-cell exhaustion
  4. Immunometabolism
  5. Lessons from challenge models 
  6. Immunogenetics

All BSI members are invited to propose topics for additional parallel sessions before the deadline of Tuesday 1 October.

The Congress Committee suggests that ideas for parallel sessions are discussed and forwarded through one of the many BSI Regional or Affinity Groups. Groups are asked to discuss suggestions with members, and identify any overlaps or proposals that could benefit from further input before forwarding the completed proposals to the BSI. The Committee requests proposals for 1 hour, 45 minute sessions to maximise the number of topics that can be accepted. If you feel your topic may warrant a double session, please contact us to advise before pursuing this line of proposal. 

If you have a topic suggestion, please contact the relevant Regional and/or Affinity Group to discuss your ideas as soon as possible – before the deadline! To submit a proposal, please use our proposal template and further guidelines document. 
Proposals (using our template) should be emailed to by Tuesday 1 October. General enquiries may also be made to or Joanne Hemstock at or telephone at +44 (0)20 3019 5919.
