ASCIA 2018 Conference registration is now open

Registration is now open at for the ASCIA 2018 conference, the 29th annual conference of the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA).

The ASCIA 2018 conference will run for 3 days, from Wednesday 5 to Friday 7 September 2018 at the National Convention Centre in Canberra.  It will include concurrent sessions for Nurses and Medical Associate ASCIA members on Friday 7 September.  The following events are also being held in conjunction with the conference:

To view the program go to

To submit an abstract for a poster or clinical grand rounds presentation (the latter is for advanced trainees only) go to (deadline is 16 July 2018)

To submit an abstract for an oral research presentation go to (deadline is 1 June 2018)

In addition to 6 international speakers, and around 50 speakers and chairs from Australasia, we expect over 500 delegates to participate in this conference.

ASCIA annual conferences provide an international standard of continuing professional development and an opportunity to interact with colleagues working in these areas. ASCIA conferences are therefore a highlight of the year for ASCIA members and other health professionals with an interest in allergy and clinical immunology.

We look forward to seeing you in Canberra in September.
