Welcome to the 18th International HLA & Immunogenetics Workshop (IHIWS)
The concluding meeting of the 18th IHIWS will take place on May 11-15, 2022 in Noordwijkerhout, the Netherlands. On behalf of the HLA Working Group The Netherlands (HLA-WN), Sebastiaan Heidt and Eric Spierings will organise this meeting.
The organising committee has a strong commitment and aims to be very active in making sure all goals of the parts of the workshop are reached. As the subtitle of this bid for the 18th IHIWS already implies, next generation is not only applicable to sequencing; the representatives of the HLA-WN truly also embody the next generation in the field of Immunogenetics and Histocompatibility.
The 2022 Joint Conference of the European Federation for Immunogenetics will be organised by the same committee. This conference will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, directly after the IHIWS meeting. Situated only 30 minutes from the IHIWS location, it allows the participants of the 18th IHIWS to easily join the 2022 Annual EFI Conference.
