History of ISDCI
International conferences have always played important roles in the history of our society. They have been crucial in promoting interests in developmental and comparative immunology worldwide. There are no better ways to exchange scientific views and experimental data than at such international meetings, where experienced scientists and young PhD students meet each other not only during scientific sessions, but also at informal coffee breaks, meals, drinks and laboratory visits.
Since the founding of ISDCI in 1980, we have held six conferences in Europe, four in North America, one in Australia and one in Asia. This website provides an interesting overview of these previous international meetings. Enjoy reading about them and seeing a few pictures of these events!
Every three years ISDCI organizes an international conference somewhere in the world. Please find below a short overview of all past ISDCI conferences, including group photo, local organizers and plenary lectures.
