Participants feedback

Dear Yehuda,
Please receive my most sincere congratulations for the excellent organization of the 12th International Congress on Autoimmunity. No doubt, this has been the best virtual meeting that I have attended during these pandemic times!

For me, it is a very interesting experience to join your comprehensive and well organized digital congress.

This is really an impressive virtual congress you put together. Congratulations! I also found the Q&A sessions fun!

This is just to tell you that we are enjoying the Congress. Very well-organized. The system works perfectly. Congratulations for one more successful congress!

Thanks my dear Yehuda!
Congratulations for a great virtual Autoimmunity Congress!

The online Autoimmunity congress is a success! I could see a lot of lectures, and met very nice colleagues.

I am enjoying the congress very much: full of great presentations and live sessions! The possibility to have all the sessions recorded is really useful, you can listen to all the sessions!

Dear Prof. Shoenfeld,
It was a very well-organized, successful congress. I will follow all the recordings.

Dear Yehuda,
The virtual 12th International Autoimmunity Congress was outstanding.
There were many topics, updates, and cutting-edge research.
Something for everyone. All of the pre-recorded sessions were without flaw.

What a wonderful Autoimmunity Congress!
It was not only of scientific interest but certainly also will be a landmark regarding the organization of such a virtual event. I learned a lot and enjoyed that I could also see Parallel Sessions that I could not have visited simultaneously on-site. Please convey my gratulations also to the people from KENES who did a perfect job.

Dear Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld,
Thank you for another great Autoimmunity Congress. We hope to attend the next year in person. However, the virtual format has allowed attending more presentations than we could in person.
