Welcome from the Congress President
We are delighted to introduce the 6th Asian Congress on Autoimmunity
(ACA 2013) taking place in Hong Kong, November 20-22, 2013.
This congress is a regional biennial meeting, inspired by the successful International Congress on Autoimmunity series and it focuses on the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of the 81 autoimmune diseases. This is a truly multidisciplinary, international gathering of world renowned experts of rheumatology, immunology, autoimmunity and related fields. As the President of ACA 2013 I believe that international cooperation will accelerate the process leading to the control and cure of these diseases.
ACA 2013 follows a line of successful congresses since 2005 and it has grown each time, increasing attendance from 150 to 500 participants. In 2013 ACA will be held in Hong Kong for the second time and we expect to welcome an impressive number of professionals for yet another successful congress.
The Scientific Program is currently being developed, and promises to include speakers who are leaders in the field of autoimmune diseases, as well as the opportunity for oral and poster presentations. We look forward to welcoming you among our presenters and participants to the amazing city of Hong Kong.
