We have received a record number of 162 abstracts, comrpising 25 Clinical Grand Rounds (CGR) cases and 137 Posters, which is around 30% more submissions received compared to previous ASCIA Conferences.

  • Clinical Grand Rounds (CGR) Cases and selected Poster Presentations on Tuesday 5th September

On Friday 8th September there will be three concurrent Allergy Update meetings, which include some shared sessions:

  • ASCIA Allergy Update for Medical Practitioners
  • ASCIA Allergy Update for Nurses
  • ASCIA Allergy Update for Dietitians

To improve sustainability, the ASCIA 2023 Conference will feature:

  • A living, digital Program Book, which can be kept up to date and reduces waste associated with printing. 
  • Online posters, which reduces production costs and waste associated with printing and transporting of posters.
  • Namebadges that do not include a plastic holder and reusable lanyards.

The ASCIA 2023 Conference will provide an international standard of continuing professional development (CPD) for ASCIA members and other health professionals working in allergy and clinical immunology, as well as an opportunity for in-person interactions with colleagues.
