ILCs have established themselves as new and significant players in the field of immunology, contributing to tissue homeostasis as well as defense against pathogens and inflammatory diseases. In addition to ILC research, studies on NKT, MAIT, and γδ T cells have also contributed to our understanding of the role of innate lymphocytes in whole-body homeostasis and in the pathophysiology of various diseases.
Abstract submission is now open for poster presentations from which applicants will be selected by the Organizing Committee for oral presentations. We will compile a scientific program covering basic aspects of innate lymphocyte biology as well as their roles in tissue homeostasis, immune regulation and diseases by combining talks by invited speakers and selected applicants. We will also offer awards for poster presentations to encourage young and early-career researchers.
We look forward to receiving many applications from all over the world and to meeting you in San Francisco. The Abstract Submission Deadline is June 15, 2020.
