The International Society of Systemic Auto-Inflammatory Diseases

ISSAID Summer School 2024

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce the International Society of Systemic Autoinflammatory Disease (ISSAID) Summer School 2024 that will take place on the 26th-28th June 2024.

The attendance to the Summer School will be in-person and the venue will be Green Garden Hotel, in beautiful Warsaw, Poland.

The interactive programme is primarily aimed at junior physicians, residents, and fellows. During the course, you will learn from expert physician-scientists on the recognition, pathophysiology, and management of the spectrum of systemic autoinflammatory diseases (SAID) and perplexing presentations of immunodysregulation, autoinflammation and immunodeficiencies. Behçet's disease and mimics, IL-1 mediated diseases, interferonopathies and undifferentiated SAID will be discussed from different perspectives involving international experts for each specific field.

You will gain knowledge on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of systemic autoinflammatory diseases, using a combination of expert-led keynote presentations and case-based discussions. The objective of the Summer School is to support young investigators and clinicians in their training and day-to-day care of these complex diseases in their practice. Another objective is to promote collaborations, which is a key to improve the care of patients with these rare conditions.

 

The number of attendees is limited. Young investigators and physicians working in this field are invited to submit their case abstracts.

Confirmation of acceptance will be provided by e-mail.

 

Accommodation for 2 nights, hotel-airport transfers, meals and coffee breaks during the Summer School will be free for the attendees who are accepted to participate in the course.

 

Attendees will need to organise travel and pay travel costs themselves. If the course budget allows, travel bursary may be granted for attendees needing financial support.

 

We very much look forward to welcoming you at the ISSAID Summer School in June 2024. 

We also would like to take this opportunity to remind you the efforts of creating ISSAID Early Investigators group. Please look out for reminder emails and contact us should you be interested in this effort.
