Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the International Society of Systemic Auto-Inflammatory Diseases (ISSAID) and the local organizing committee, we are honored to invite you to the “9th International Congress of Familial Mediterranean Fever and Systemic Auto-Inflammatory Diseases”. The meeting will take place in Northern Cyprus, Turkish Republic on May 4th-7th, 2017.

Our meeting will offer numerous opportunities to converse with experts on FMF and other auto-inflammatory diseases. We hope to welcome more than 600 participants from all over the world to discuss the latest scientific and clinical developments, including new treatment options.

The scientific program of the ISSAID meeting will be devoted to the integration of basic science and clinical implications for autoinflammatory diseases. We hope the scientific program will give a good overview of the most recent advances on FMF and other autoinflammatory diseases, which will help guide further diagnostic applications and develop new therapeutic algorithms.

Our congress will be organized with Educational sessions, “Meet the Professor” sessions, Poster sessions, Satellite Symposia and Workshops. We will start the congress with the “Young Investigators Meeting,” where brilliant young scientists will present their exciting results.

There will be the opportunity to meet and interactively discuss with experts in our highly acclaimed “Meet the Professor” sessions. These sessions are mainly addressed to residents, fellows and young researchers.

In addition to the scientific part of the meeting, there will also be ample time to meet friends and colleagues during various social events and explore Northern Cyprus in the evening. Join us in this unique opportunity to be engaged in an international and high-level scientific debate on this broad field of research.
