Updated: Monday 7 December 2020

Over the past couple of months, we have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Considering the developments over the course of this year and advice from the Australian Tourism Minister, Australian Federal Government and the Australian and New Zealand Society for Immunology Executives (ASI), the 2021 Local Organising Committee has concluded, with regret, that the ASI 2021 will be postponed.

The Meeting is rescheduled to be held at the same venue, the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, from, Tuesday 29 November to Friday 02 December 2022.

Australia has taken enhanced measures for the control of the spread of COVID-19 and promising vaccines are progressing at an unprecedented rate, however, uncertainties of the impact of COVID-19 will be around for some time, potentially through to the end of 2021, and for many delegates it may not be possible to travel to Melbourne to meet as a large group.

We have a fantastic line-up of international and national speakers for ASI 2022 as well as plenty of opportunities for oral and poster presentations. The Annual Scientific Meeting of ASI remains one of the pre-eminent immunology conferences in the region and in this day and age, opportunities to present and discuss scientific research into immunology and to network with other researchers in the field, are critical.

For options regarding your flights, please contact your travel provider.

Thank you for your understanding and support, and we hope to see you in Melbourne in 2022. To obtain the latest information on COVID-19 please visit 

We thank all our delegates, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and suppliers for their unwavering support. We recognise all the hard work that so many of you have put into preparing your presentations and travel for ASI 2021 and hope you will be able to join us in 2022.
