Application and Requirements
All participants are required to contribute to the Scientific Programme by preparing a case presentation, with mentoring from their local supervisor and the Faculty. We encourage that the Faculty and the participants should relate with one another as educators and learners.
The format of presentation (oral / poster) will be selected by the Scientific Committee, based on the merit of abstract. Travel grants to cover for registration, accommodation (27th April – 1st May 2016, 5 nights) and return airfare will be awarded to successful applicants.
Participants who take part in the Spring School will be automatically registered for the APSID Congress (30th April and 1st May 2016). The number of participants to be accepted for case presentation at the Spring School is limited to 20. In case of over-registration for the Spring School, the following priorities for a place have been set:
- Trainees in paediatric immunology / allergy (please provide evidence on your current training status)
- Doctors interested in paediatric immunology from countries with no formal training
- Trainees in paediatric infectious diseases (please provide evidence on your current training status)
- 1-2 delegates per country
