With great pleasure, I am extending this invitation to the WASOG 2023 conference that will take place June 19 – 21, 2023, at Aula Medica, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden. The conference theme is “Big data - How to move the field towards precision medicine,” and it is a dedicated event where attendees will have the opportunity to learn the latest developments in the field of Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) and share aspects of their own work by submitting a poster or oral presentation.
The scientific program (coming soon) will offer a variety of plenary lectures and scientific sessions in different disciplines. It also covers general topics which will be of interest to many: Clinical, Translational, Genetics, Epidemiology, Basic Research, Clinical Treatment and Therapy, and much more. Particularly, topics to be highlighted include:
•Clinical updates and treatment options
•New concepts on disease characterization, phenotypes, and socioeconomic determinants
•Big data, biobanks, and single-cell approaches
•Immunological approaches and methods
•Artificial intelligence applications towards Precision Medicine
During the three days conference, there will be rich activities, including symposiums, panel discussions, free communication, poster presentations, and an exhibition. Through these dynamic scientific and social events, attendees will have many opportunities to network and form potential collaborations with participants from all over the world.
Our meeting will be an unmatched opportunity to reunite and reconnect in an exciting, diverse, and welcoming city. The official meeting language is English. Attendees will also have a chance to experience some of Stockholm’s best attractions and learn about Sweden’s captivating history.
I look forward to seeing you in Stockholm.
