Workshops

Several workshops and special workshops will take place at WIRM. The oral presentations will last 10 minutes and will be selected from the submitted abstracts by approx. mid-January. Every Workshop Speaker can also mount a poster in the evening. There won’t be a poster walk within the workshop posters.
Best Workshop Presentation Awards

"BioLegend Best Workshop Presentation Awards" will be distributed to one best presenter of each workshop. The winners of the awards will be selected by the chairs right after each workshop and honored at the award ceremony the day after.

Titles of Workshops
WS 1: Development of effector and regulatory T cells
WS 2: Autoimmunity: from bench to bedside
WS 3: Effector mechanisms in T and B cells
WS 4: Innate immune response
WS 5: Eosinophils, basophils and neutrophils
WS 6: Allergy and Asthma
WS 7: Epithelial barriers and immune regulation

Poster Sessions

As at other Davos meetings, we will reconvene in the evenings for poster sessions with buffet dinner in a relaxed and stimulatory atmosphere giving young researchers the opportunity to meet senior scientists. Poster presenters will be selected from the submitted abstracts by approx. mid-January.

Poster Presenter Information:

The size of the poster has to be DIN-format A0 vertical (width 84,1 x height 118,9 cm) or not more than 95 x 120 cm.
Adhesive poster strips will be provided at the registration desk by the organizer.

Poster presenters are requested to display their posters at 10:00 the latest at the day of presentation and to remove them at the end of the session approximately at 23:00 the same evening. In order to increase scientific discussions, a poster walk will take place at approx. 20:00 of each poster session. Selected chairpersons and poster presenters will meet in front of the first poster of their session in time. Each poster should be explained within two minutes by the poster presenter, which will leave one minute for discussion.
