The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) has enjoyed successful Focused Meetings over the last few years and the Pediatric Allergy and Asthma Meeting, PAAM 2015 was the largest with over 1,300 attendees travelling to Berlin for the event.
As members of the EAACI Pediatric Section Board and chairs of PAAM 2017, we are very happy to announce that the 5th PAAM will be held in London, the capital of Britain, from 26-28 October 2017. Lead of the local organising committee is Lauri-Ann Van der Poel an expert in the field of pediatric allergy.
London is a culturally vibrant and multifaceted city which will surely facilitate a fruitful scientific exchange and important networking opportunities between PAAM attendees. PAAM 2017 will bring together pediatricians and primary care physicians who care passionately for the challenging scientific and clinical issues that relate to pediatric allergy and asthma.
The Pediatric Section of EAACI along with the local organising committee will create a scientific programme covering contemporary aspects of asthma, food allergy, anaphylaxis, atopic eczema, immunotherapy and eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders. For example, new insights into immunological mechanisms that underpin successful tolerance induction to foods will be presented; there will also be special emphasis on educational hands-on workshops.
PAAM 2017 will be held at the London Hilton Metropole which is in the heart of London, easily accessible by public transportation. Sustainability is a goal of all EAACI meetings which we will try to respect during PAAM, making it exciting, fun and green.
We look forward to welcoming you to London in 2017.
