Conference Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to participate in the WAO International Scientific Conference (WISC 2016) in Jerusalem, Israel, 6-9 December 2016. The theme of the Conference is Outstanding Allergy, Clinical Immunology and Cultural Heritage. As a global alliance of national and regional allergy, asthma and clinical immunology societies, WAO is proud to partner with the Israel Association of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (IAACI) and their mutually collaborating partner Allergists for Israel (AFI) to host WISC 2016.

The WAO International Scientific Conference has grown and evolved from one edition to the next, and the meeting in Jerusalem will continue to build on the hugely successful preceding Conferences in Dubai, UAE (2010), Hyderabad, India (2012), and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2014). Delegates may count on a diverse and stimulating scientific program, highly relevant to both the theory and practice of allergy, asthma and clinical immunology.

WAO organizes these scientific Conferences in recognition of:

  • The increasing prevalence and more complex forms of allergic diseases and asthma worldwide, especially in children
  • The need to create a more integrated approach to the diagnosis and management of allergic diseases and asthma
  • The need to expand the knowledge and practice of allergy and provide more practical knowledge to young professionals

The 2016 Conference on Outstanding Allergy, Clinical Immunology and Cultural Heritage will provide a forum for the most useful combination of latest research, review of current theory and practice, and hands-on, problem-based learning. Our aim is that participants gain insight into the most effective advances in the diagnosis and management of complex and severe allergies and asthma and in their preventative strategies.

We look forward to seeing you in Jerusalem, Israel!
