15th international congress of immunology 2013

ICI 2013

A congress like the ICI 2013 is a complex machine, which requires a lot of energy to be organized and function properly. On behalf of SIICA, I would like to thank the many friends and colleagues in the different committees that have contributed to the congress organization. I will not be able to go through all the names here, but there are a few that I would like to thank personally. In particular, Sergio Romagnani, Honorary President of the meeting, with whom I have prepared and presented the two bids to IUIS, Massimo Locati, Secretary General of ICI 2013 and Secretary of SIICA, who has helped me tremendously in the organization and with whom I have discussed every detail of the meeting to ensure a smooth operation, and Vincenzo Barnaba, President of the Italian Society for Immunology, SIICA, that has been able to foster the commitment of the entire Society towards the successful conclusion of this meeting. I would also like to give special thanks to Alberto Mantovani and Lorenzo Moretta, co-chairs of the Scientific Program Committee, who have assembled a really great scientific program.Last but not least, I would like to thank our Professional Congress Organizer, Triumph Group, for helping us to make this congress happening and for managing very efficiently all the logistic aspects.Finally, I would like to sincerely thank IUIS for awarding SIICA the opportunity to organize a memorable ICI, and for offering myself a very stimulating and exciting challenge.
