The 2014 edition of our congress was held in Mainz, Germany, from November 9 - 13 and was a great success: more than 1000 people attended, coming from 45 different countries and from all 5 continents of the world.
The true measure of success was the number of posters accepted by the scientific committee to take part in the 3 days’ poster sessions: 587. That is a real indicator of how the congress is perceived as the ultimate meeting in Neuroimmunology. All the posters have been published in a special issue of the Journal of Neuroimmunology.
The local hosts and scientific organizers, Prof. Frauke Zipp (Director of the Department of Neurology) and Prof. Ari Waisman (Director of the Institute for Molecular Medicine), both from the University Medical Center of the Johannes Gutenberg University, developed an interesting scientific programme that has drawn the interest of the scientific community.
