The IgV Annual Scientific Meeting is returning this year as a hybrid in-person / virtual meeting. As always, it will be a terrific opportunity for students and early postdocs to mingle with more senior immunologists and discuss their work in a congenial atmosphere, as well as obtaining experience in oral presentation.

An exciting program is planned over two full days, with plenty of opportunities for oral and poster presentations. There will also be a special session on equity and diversity in medical research.

Any participant attending in person or Victorian/Tasmanian ASI members joining virtually are invited to submit an abstract to be selected for a short talk, 3 minute thesis or poster presentation. Oral presentations are only available to those who attend in person (member or non-member) or to Victorian/Tasmanian members joining virtually. Poster presentations are only available for in person participants.

The IgV Committee will be awarding a series of oral and poster presentation prizes to students and early postdoc (ASI members only).

Due to ongoing COVID-safe requirements, there will be a limit on the number of people allowed to attend in person. In-person registration will be on a first come, first served basis. In-person registrations include all meals and accommodation.

Travel bursaries (covering airfare) will be awarded to the top abstracts submitted by Tasmanian ASI student members.
