The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology Congress 2012 took place in Geneva, Switzerland, 16 - 20 June 2012. The theme of the Congress, “At the Crossroads of Research, Practice and Education”, emphasised Geneva’s specificities and contributed to excellent scientific exchanges between all participants: faculty members, delegates and exhibitors. The Local Organising Committee, which included members of all major Swiss allergy centers, as well as the EAACI Scientific Committee under the lead of Lars K. Poulsen, has established a programme that met the expectations of researchers, practicing allergists, as well as educators.
The EAACI Scientific Programme Committee has prepared outstanding scientific sessions, including 7 Plenary sessions, 34 Symposia, 23 Workshops, 24 “Meet the Expert”, and 4 Clinical Updates. The programme also included 10 Postgraduate Courses, the EAACI-SSAI Basic Science Symposium, the European Meeting of Allergy Nurses, Patient Organisations Workshop and the PAPRICA – Prime Allergy for the Primary Care Physicians Meeting. The programme included several educational sessions especially designed for Junior members.
