Dear Friends,

With the history and experience of 11 International Congresses behind us, we are now excited to be organizing the 12th International Congress on Autoimmunity in Athens, Greece on 28 May – 1 June, 2021.

Those who have been following the course of the Autoimmunity Congresses know that in 2018, the 11th Congress was held in Lisbon, Portugal with amazing success and over 2000 participants from around the world. We are delighted to be in Athens for the upcoming congress!

Athens is one of the first places of culture. Athens contributed to a better understanding of not only medicine, but also autoimmunity. Just to mention a few names like Moutsopoulos, Tzioufas and Tsokos. If you want to know anything new about Sjogren syndrome go to Athens!

The International Congress on Autoimmunity is the largest multidisciplinary congress that discusses all aspects of the related diseases under one roof, offering courses and lectures by some of the world’s most distinguished experts. At the same time, the Congress prides itself on providing a stage for young upcoming talents to present their research to a first-rate audience.

In 2021 we will also have the Academy of Autoimmunity led by the teacher Abul Abbas who will be joined by leaders in the field of Autoimmunity.

Join us and enjoy the inspiring atmosphere of medical science among old and new colleagues: share, learn and network to build the future of autoimmunology at the 12th International Congress on Autoimmunity!

Looking forward to welcoming you in Athens.
