As the Local Organising Committee, we would like to invite you to join us at the 17th International Symposium on Dendritic Cells 2024, which will take place at the Hotel Meliá Sitges in Barcelona, Spain in 20-23 October 2024.

We are constructing our scientific program which includes top international researchers on dendritic cells, trying to accommodate all the thematic diversity of research in the field in plenary talks, symposia, workshops and poster presentations. We welcome all researchers in any aspects of the biology and application/translation of the DC research to join this vibrant meeting to share and discuss your unpublish or recently published research in a friendly environment. We believe that we need to learn more about the biology and functions of DCs with the objective of delivering new immunotherapies that can boost translational research on DCs. It is time to deliver new DC-based immunotherapies!

The Symposium will return to Europe, to the sunny Barcelona. Despite being the end of October, the weather is usually warm and you should not forget your swim suit! Barcelona needs no introduction and the location will allow enjoying the Mediterranean Sea and a nice typical Mediterranean village of Sitges, and is just 40 minute-distance from Barcelona city center, where you can enjoy a unique architecture, museums and welcoming people!

We look forward to welcoming you to Sitges, Barcelona, Spain, and we hope you will enjoy top science in a friendly environment with a vibrant scientific community while, at the same time, enjoying a unique location.

Yours sincerely

DC2024 Organizing Committee
