Harald von Boehmer Midwinter Conference 2019

Harald von Boehmer
1942 – 2018

Harald von Boehmer was the conceptualist and founder of the MWC. In light of his passing and in honor of his fundamental contributions to the field of immunology, we have renamed the congress the "Harald von Boehmer Midwinter Conference".


We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 3rd Midwinter Conference (MWC) ‘Advances in Immunobiology’, which will take place from 19 - 23 January, 2019 in Seefeld (Tyrol), Austria. The conference is co-organized by the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Centre 1054 “Control and Plasticity of Cell Fate Decisions in the Immune System” and the “Association for the Advancement of Immunobiology”. Featuring invited presentations from 26 internationally renowned speakers and a similar number of talks selected from abstracts as well as two poster sessions, the MWC 2019 will cover topics ranging from basic aspects of lymphocyte development and immune regulation to immune mediated diseases, cancer and therapeutic concepts. With an anticipated number of around 200 participants, we aim to keep this event ‘small enough’ to foster a lively and informal exchange of ideas among scientists. The conference center is embedded in the beautiful mountain scenery of Tyrol, and Seefeld offers excellent alpine and cross-country skiing. 

We would be delighted if you joined us!
