Welcome to EAACI Congress 2019
Dear Friends, dear Colleagues,
It is a great pleasure to invite you to the EAACI Congress 2019, from 1-5 June, and wish you a warm welcome to Portugal and to its multicultural and cosmopolitan capital, Lisbon.
The core framework of the congress will be the scientific programme, which has been developed by a dedicated Scientific Committee, based on the innovative proposals received from the global EAACI Membership and its multiple and dedicated working groups. Under the theme “Mapping the new world of allergy (towards precision medicine in allergy and asthma)” the EAACI Congress 2019 in Lisbon will help all attending delegates and participants to advance their knowledge and navigate the complex world of today’s allergy and clinical immunology. In fact, mapping allergen structure, aerobiology, disease endotypes, biologicals, as well as mapping genomics, proteomics and metabolomics, are today´s tools for a better understanding of allergic and immune disorders, driving both basic science and clinical practice towards precision medicine and personalized health care.
The congress venues, Lisbon Exhibition and Congress Centre and neighboring Altice Arena, where EAACI has previously held successful meetings, are located in one of the modernist central areas of Lisbon, the Nations Park, a 5 minutes’ distance from the international airport and walking distance to excellent accommodations for all budgets. The Lisbon Airport has international connections to 105 destinations; most are a 1-3 hours’ direct flight to major European cities and 6-8 hours from the Americas.
Lisbon itself, is a historic capital, an amalgam of 900 years of cultural influences that mingle with modern trends and life style, creating a multicultural, cosmopolitan and tolerance feel to our visitors. With a temperate climate and spread across seven hills, always opening a window towards astonishing light, the Tagus river and the Atlantic breeze, Lisbon is today one of the world´s best cities to live in and visit.
We will do our best to make the EAACI Congress 2019 in Lisbon a memorable scientific, cultural and socially interactive experience for you, so… don’t miss your EAACI Congress 2019 in Lisbon!
On behalf of the Local Organising Committee,
EAACI Congress 2019 Chair
