    • INVITATION Dear Colleagues and Friends, On behalf of the organizing committee, we would like to cordially invite you to participate in the upcoming “International Conference on Immunology 2007” to be held in Shanghai, China from July 12 to 15, 2007. The conference is organized by the Chinese Society for Immunology and National Natural Science Foundation of China. The conference will provide a forum to bring together immunologists and scientists from around the world in related fields to review the latest progress and development, to exchange their experience, progress and ideas, and also to deepen their knowledge and broaden their understanding in basic and clinical immunology. The conference will be held in Shanghai, one of the world’s most dynamic cities in the 21st century. China is a land of ancient culture with historical sites dating back to over 5000 years. We plan to have exciting social activities and sightseeing tours. We sincerely hope that this conference will bring you unforgettable memories.
