Conference Invitation

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to welcome you to participate in the World Allergy Organization International Scientific Conference (WISC 2012) in Hyderabad, India, 6-9 December 2012. The theme of the Conference is Severe Allergies, Severe Asthma: New Strategies for Treatment and Prevention.

Building on the success of the first WISC in Dubai, December 2010, WAO is excited to launch its second theme-based scientific conference. With 24 Postgraduate Courses on a wide range of topics, Plenary Sessions, Parallel Symposia, Keynote Lectures, Poster Sessions and Highlights in Immunotherapy, WISC 2012 will be a multidisciplinary forum for allergists, pulmonologists, ENTs, dermatologists, internists, pediatricians, gastroenterologists, clinical immunologists and primary care physicians.

WAO is organizing these focused, theme-based 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
  • The need to expand the knowledge and practice of allergy and provide more practical knowledge to young professionals

The 2012 Conference on Severe Allergies, Severe Asthma: New Strategies for Treatment and Prevention 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.

WISC 2012 is also excited to announce that the Conference is under that Patronage of the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare – Government of India.

We look forwarding to seeing you in Hyderabad, India!
