The 18th International HLA & Immunogenetics Workshop
18th IHIWS is being organized by Sebastiaan Heidt and Eric Spierings, on behalf of the HLA Working Group The Netherlands (HLA-WN) with the intended date being in early May 2021. The location will be Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The organizing committee has a strong commitment and aims to be very active in making sure all goals of the parts of the workshop are reached. As the subtitle of this bid for the 18th IHIWS already implies, next generation is not only applicable to sequencing; the representatives of the HLA-WN truly also embody the next generation in the field of Immunogenetics and Histocompatibility.
