Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 14th East-West Immunogenetics Conference (EWIC) to be held in Budapest, Hungary, from March 5 to 7, 2020.

As in the previous years, EWIC will include scientific sessions in the histocompatibility and immunogenetics fields, external proficiency testing and EFI Affairs. The participation of leading clinicans and histocompatibility experts reflects the importance of the dialogue and close collaboration between professionals of hospitals and laboratories.

During the recent history, EWIC have been rotating between various Central European cities. We are pleased that the next EWIC will be hosted in the beautiful Hungarian capital. The conference will take place in the Hotel Aquincum, located in the historical Buda area, near the river Danube and the famous Margaret Island. The city is well known for its numerous spas, coffee bars, churches, museums and the old castle with a nice view of the Hungarian Parliament and bridges spanning across the river.

We sincerely hope that EWIC 2020 will provide you a nice opportunity to share experience, present everyday work, or new ideas and you will have memorable time in Hungary.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Budapest,

President of the Organizing Committee

Dr. Anikó Szilvási
