30th European Immunogenetics and Histocompatibility Conference, EFI 2016, Kos, Greece



Dear Colleagues,

It is our distinct pleasure to announce that the 30th European Immunogenetics and Histocompatibility Conference will be held in Greece, on the island of Kos, the ideal place for a “come together” meeting.

The island of Kos, offers a unique environment that reflects, awakens, encourages, and inspires the humanitarian principles of Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine. Our motto “From Hippocrates to High Tech Immunogenetics” invites you to a meeting where the spirit of the ancient times will encounter recent achievements in the field of Immunogenetics, as well as our expectations for future developments.

Kos is famous worldwide for its cosmopolitan lifestyle, its palm tree lined streets, the mild weather and its endless beaches with crystal and turquoise waters.  It is easily accessible by air and sea.  The island offers state of the art conference facilities and “value for money” hotel infrastructures. Opportunities for exploration of the island alongside with Greek hospitality will prove to be an unforgettable experience for attending delegates.

We hope that all the above will spark your interest and enthusiasm to join the 30th European Immunogenetics and Histocompatibility Conference.  Your active participation will be decisive in the success of our Scientific Meeting. Therefore we call upon all and each one of you to join this meeting.

We are eagerly looking forward to welcoming you on Kos Island and are convinced that together we will contribute to the Meeting’s success, both from the scientific and the cultural aspect.

Aiming for a high-standard Conference, as EFI conferences deserve.

On behalf of EFI and all Greeks working in Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics

Conference Co-chairs
Marighoula Varla-Leftherioti, Maria Spyropoulou-Vlahou and Joannis Mytilineos
