Veterinary Immunology

Contact Andrew Bean, for information regarding the Veterinary Immunology special interest group.


On behalf of the Conference Organising Committee we have great pleasure in inviting you to IVIS 2016 to be held at the Gold Coast Convention Centre, The Gold Coast, Australia, from August 16-19, 2016.

The last several decades has seen the emergence of numerous novel infectious diseases. Compounding this is the re-emergence of diseases as a result of a combination of reasons, such as increased host exposure and environmental factors. Research in emerging infectious diseases is growing rapidly, with new breakthroughs in the understanding of host-pathogen interactions and the development of innovative and exciting therapeutic strategies.

This conference aims to bring together researchers in the field of Veterinary Immunology, uniting the areas of immunology and animal disease, as well as the issues around the emergence of disease.


The IVIS 2016 Conference Organising Committee is preparing for you an impressive program that will encourage plenty of scientific exchange and discussion. To accompany the science, we have selected an excellent 4 star waterfront conference facility.

We look forward to seeing you on the Gold Coast in August!


Best regards,

Andrew Bean and Wayne Hein (on behalf of the IVIS 2016 Conference Organising Committee)
