Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 7th Congress of ISSAID, International Society of Systemic Auto-Inflammatory Diseases. We will welcome you in Lausanne, Switzerland, from May 22 to 26, 2013.

The meeting will offer a unique opportunity to gather experts on FMF and the other auto-inflammatory diseases. They will come from all over the world to discuss the latest scientific and clinical issues on different topics, including the challenges of the new treatments.

The conference will be held in the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV), facing the wonderful Lake of Geneva and the Alps. Lausanne is the city of the Inflammasome by hosting the research team of Jürg Tschopp, who worked on its discovery.

Lausanne is located in the centre of Europe, at 30 minutes from Geneva airport. It is a city of Art and the Capital of the Olympic Games.

We look forward to welcoming you all.
