5th Black Sea International Immunology School (BSIIS2018)

Dear friends and colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 5th Black Sea International Immunology School (BSIIS).

The Black Sea International Immunology School (BSIIS) is an educational initiative of BuSI, that was given a successful start in 2014 and continued through 2015, 2016 and 2017, thanks to the financial support of EFIS-EEJI.

The 5th Black Sea International Immunology School will be entitled “Immunity in all its States“, and will cover some hot topics in the fields of immunology. As we are addressing “beginners”, complicated concepts will be made clear, and sophisticated approaches will be presented at the friendly level. The program will include lectures and students’ short presentation modules. The school is addressed to participants with no or minimum past experience in the covered areas. Undergraduate, master, PhD students and post-docs are welcome.

The selection will be based on applications including a CV and a 250-words abstract on the applicant’s current/future project. Participants from the neighboring countries will be strongly encouraged to apply. BSIIS2018 will take place from 24 to 25 October 2018  in the conference hall of Imperial Park Hotel and SPA – Plovdiv. We will provide a relaxed venue for learning, scientific exchange, and networking.

There is no fee for attendance and the organizing committee offers fellowships that will cover accommodation costs. Note that the number of participants is limited!

We encourage you to apply for the school! We look forward to meeting you in Plovdiv.
