Dear colleagues

we are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2nd Midwinter Conference (MWC) ‘Advances in Immunobiology’, which will take place from January 21st to 25th 2017 in Seefeld (Tyrol), Austria. Featuring invited presentations from 30 internationally renowned speakers and a similar number of talks selected from abstracts as well as two poster sessions, the MWC 2017 will cover topics ranging from basic aspects of lymphocyte development and immune regulation to immune mediated diseases, cancer and therapeutic concepts. With an anticipated number of around 250 participants, we aim to keep this event ‘small enough’ to foster a lively and informal exchange of ideas among scientists. The conference center is embedded in the beautiful mountain scenery of Tyrol, and Seefeld offers excellent alpine and cross-country skiing.
We would be delighted if you joined us!

Information on the 2015 Midwinter Conference in Seefeld can be found on the MWC 2015 website.
