Welcome to Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark!
The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology cordially invites you to its 2014 Annual Congress, which takes place in Copenhagen from 7–11 June.
We are proud that Copenhagen has been selected to host the EAACI Congress 2014, and look forward to welcoming the international allergy community from all over Europe and from the world beyond.
The Local Organising Committee, which includes representative members from major academic centres in Denmark, Norway and Sweden has, together with the EAACI Scientific Committee under the lead of Marek Jutel, established an exciting programme under the main theme: Challenging Dogmas. The aims are not only to provide delegates with a comprehensive and broad update of basic and clinical research in our field, but also to evaluate critically established scientific dogmas to foster sound and vivid scientific discussions of the paradigms on which we should base our future diagnosis, treatment and prevention strategies.
Copenhagen is almost at the geographical centre of Europe, yet 90% of all Europeans live south of the city. Besides academic nourishment, we will
introduce you to a vibrant capital where history and the wonderful old buildings meet modern development with architecture, design and environmental friendliness. The relaxed and informal atmosphere in Copenhagen will involve you in appreciating all the aspects of the Nordic
lifestyle, including gastronomy, ecology and outdoor activities during the bright nights. Copenhagen lies on the coast, and the harbour and the many channels are deeply integrated in the city life.
The venue, the Bella Center, is a modern facility closely connected by Metro to everywhere in the city. The congress centre has hosted many large,
international meetings including the United Nations World Summit for Social Development and the United Nations Climate Change Conference.
Copenhagen is continuously hosting memorable cultural events, art exhibitions and musical performances. The airport is well connected to many larger cities in Europe, North America and Asia, and the bridge across the Øresund will take you to Sweden and the Scandinavian Peninsula in less than 20 minutes.
On behalf of the entire Local Organising Committee I wish you an unforgettable Congress and look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen.
