It will encompass basic research, translation and clinical application. It will interest both young students and experienced researchers. It will cover the full spectrum from academic research to industry.

The Congress, however, will not only serve as platform for communication and exchange of the most challenging state-of-the-art research among immunologists. It will also serve as impressive platform for making laypersons, the press and politicians aware of the importance of immunologic research for maintenance of well-being, and combat of major diseases, including infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases or allergic diseases. Last but not least, it will provide a unique platform for meeting colleagues/friends/post-doc candidates and mentors. In short, the 15th ICI will be wonderful meeting point for researchers from academia, industry and clinics both from industrialized and developing countries and hence strengthen existing friendships and invite new ones.

The 15th ICI will take place in Milan, Italy and this guarantees another wonderful aspect, namely, the great opportunity for social activities in a most accessible and welcoming city. Milan boasts a unique, world‐famous artistic heritage, of which the best known is Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. Today Milan is not only the international centre of fashion and design, but also a vibrant city, which guarantees a lot of fun after a hard working day at the Congress.

SIICA represents over 1,000 immunologists active in Italy, and several of its members are recognized as international leaders in their field, actively contributing to the development of Immunology. Therefore, the scientific organization of the ICI will count on a dedicated and competent local scientific committee, in addition to a distinguished international committee.

The meeting will cover all aspects of Immunology, from the more traditional to the most innovative, with emphasis on translational aspects and clinical applications. A scientifically inspiring program will be assembled in a range of formats to cover a wide variety of interests and provide the state of the art in all different facets of Immunology. An introductory Immunology course just before the ICI, and satellite symposia at several locations in Italy will complement the scientific program.

Milan has a rich historic heritage, dating back to its times as capital of the Western Roman Empire. Leonardo da Vinci, the quintessential Renaissance polymath artist and scientist, while in the Milan area drew his iconic Vitruvian man shown in the 15th ICI logo. Today Milan is a dynamic and trendy city, a renowned international centre of fashion and design as well as of arts and science. The City has just opened the largest and most modern congress center in Europe , which will comfortably accommodate the ICI participants.
