Overview: This is the 36th year for the Aspen Allergy Conference, which is scheduled for July 22 through July 26, 2018 at the Hotel Jerome in Aspen, CO. This annual conference consists of four consecutive and thematic half-day sessions, featuring state-of-the-art basic science and clinical topics on Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. This meeting is sponsored in part by the Colorado Allergy and Asthma Society, a steering committee and an advisory board with representation from around the country. State of the Art speakers are invited from around the world providing an international viewpoint on selected topics of interest. Because a limited number of attendees (e.g. 150) participate in this annual conference, there is an exceptional amount of time and ample opportunity for discussion of the information presented.
Scientific Abstracts: Abstract presentations are recommended and selected for either oral or poster presentations. Potential topics of the abstracts can be related to any topic of special interest to the allergy community. As with the State of the Art presentations, there is an exceptional amount of time allotted for discussion after all abstract presentations.
Travel Grants: This year, a limited number of travel grants will be available to provide funding for Fellows-in-Training, Junior Faculty Members and Young Clinicians to help defray the actual costs of attending the annual Aspen Allergy Conference.
