NVVI Annual Meeting December 14 & 15, 2022

Dear Immunologists,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the NVVI-DSI Annual Meeting 2022 that we will host December 14 - 15th. The meeting will take place in our usual location in Noordwijkerhout so that we can meet in person! This will allow us to enjoy a full spectrum of scientific presentations but also enable to (re)connect to friends and collaborators during the social events.

The meeting will comprise presentations from 5 keynote speakers, the van Loghem lecture, 9 invited speakers, Bright-Spark presentations, Thesis award presentation, oral presentations selected from abstracts and posters presentations.

We hope you will join us for the NVVI Annual Meeting 2022 to meet up in person and enjoy Dutch Immunology.

On behalf of the program committee,

Kind regards,
Leendert Trouw
Chair of the program committee

Bright Sparks submission criteria
We are pleased to announce to continue our tradition regarding the Bright Sparks plenary session. The aim of this session is to put our young bright talents in the spotlight. PhD students or junior postdoctoral fellows who have completed a cutting edge research project are most welcome to put forward their candidacy. From the list of all candidates, 4 are nominated to give an oral presentation in the auditorium before an audience of peers, after which a designated committee will select the next 'Bright Spark in Immunology', who is entitled to a prize of €500.

Please read the following submission criteria carefully, before submitting your abstract for the ‘Bright Sparks’:

  • You must be the presenting/main author of the abstract
  • You must have been a PhD student or junior postdoctoral fellow (maximally 2 years post-PhD) at the time of the performed research)
  • During the submission process you must indicate that your work should be considered for an ORAL presentation in the ‘Bright Sparks’ session in addition to your regular submission for an ORAL presentation in one of the parallel sessions.
