Dear colleagues and friends,

It is our pleasure to invite you to join us in Hvar, Croatia, for the 20th International Summer School on Immunology. This course gives students a deeper insight into the basic knowledge and novel developments in immunology.

Each teacher holds two lectures. The first one is a more general talk focusing on the state-of-the-art of a particular scientific field, the second lecture specializes on the current research project of the speaker´s laboratory.

The lectures take place in the morning - usually from 9 to 12 am - and in the late afternoon. The afternoons are free for discussions or for swimming. On most days, groups of students meet with a faculty member for an informal seminar outside or at the beach. In the evenings, poster sessions offer students the opportunity to present and discuss their own work. Additionally, up to 10 short talks will be selected from submitted abstracts for 10-minute presentations.

The course aims to promote interaction and discussion between students themselves and between students and faculty. A welcome party on Sunday evening as well as many opportunities for informal meetings will contribute to this. Also, most of the faculty will stay in Hvar for the duration of the Summer School.

See you in Hvar, 21 - 28 September 2019!

The Organzing Team
