Joint Meeting 2015 • IPITA-IXA-CTS • Melbourne, Australia

Tom Kay
Congress Chair

Melbourne, Downunder (aka Australia) is the host city for the 2015 Joint Congress of IPITA, IXA and CTS. Melbourne has a rich scientific record in immunology, transplantation, and stem cell research – as well as being a great place to visit in springtime. Melbourne is known for its arts and cultural events, its fine cafes and restaurants based on generations of immigration, its famous sporting events and its proximity to great natural beauty. The three Societies are working hard to produce an outstanding program that will be of interest to all from practicing transplant surgeons to basic biologists. There will be shared sessions where the Societies will meet together as well as individual sessions of the different groups. The Congress, which will be held in Melbourne’s new Convention Centre in the Docklands area, will follow on immediately after the Transplantation Sciences Symposium in Lorne, Australia. All of the team now working hard on putting the Congress together looks forward to giving you a warm Aussie welcome in November 2015.
