The Sixth European Congress of Immunology (6th ECI 2021) that will be held virtually from September 1-4,2021 and will cover all fields of basic and applied immunology, ranging from innate to adaptive to omics aided big data mining of forward genetics and vaccination as well as mechanistic regulation of memory generation and tissue specific instruction of T- and B- cell differentiation through the 4-track program. Four tracks will be dedicated to “Cellular Immunology”, “Molecular Immunology“, “Diseases and Immune Response” and “Innovative Technologies and Immunotherapies”. 

Throughout the ECI 2021 Scientific Program Committee will put emphasis to discuss the molecular and cellular basis of autoinflammatory/autoimmune diseases as well as neuroimmune and allergic and newly emerging orphan diseases along with cancer, reemerging infectious and neglected diseases. Within this pandemic era, without a doubt the latest developments regarding COVID-19 will feature prominently in several sessions throughout the ECI 2021. Scientific Program Committee will put special emphasis on this topic with two specific symposia dedicated to the pandemic. 

Throughout the ECI 2021 special symposia such as Women and Men in Immunology and brand-new yEFIS Symposium will feature interesting topics. President’s Symposium will stage outstanding scientists discussing their latest research. Special sessions will highlight technological advances and innovations in immunological and biomedical research in close cooperation with partners from industry through company-sponsored symposia.

The scientific program will offer 10 main and 20 regular symposia and several plenary sessions staged by Nobel laureates, world-renowned immunologists and clinicians in addition to joint symposia with guest societies from around the world in the live program. Additionally, Bright Sparks and other workshops sessions with short oral presentations, selected from submitted abstracts, will be included within the live program to allow interaction and discussion among early-stage career scientists. New this year, there will also be Best Poster Sessions and most notable posters will stage within the live program to recognize the work of poster owners. Lastly, e-poster hall will house all accepted posters and the comment and chat functions will enable interaction of early career researchers with other colleagues and exchange their data during the virtual Congress.

ECI 2021 will implement a state-of-the-art virtual platform to provide our participants, speakers and industrial partners access to the scientifically stimulating program, valuable discussions and networking opportunities through various chat functions and video chat rooms that will enable all of us to network within our global immunology community. Virtual ECI 2021 will allow participation from around the world making the congress the premier event of the immunology community.  

Scientific Program Committee very much look forward to see you joining us for this scientifically stimulating program.
