ASCIA Annual Conference

ASCIA 2023 Conference

ASCIA Conference 2023

It is a pleasure to invite you to participate in the ASCIA 2023 Conference, which will be held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Sydney from Tuesday 5th to Friday 8th September 2023. Virtual online participation will also be possible for delegates who are unable to attend in-person.

ASCIA annual conferences are the leading source of allergy and clinical immunology continuing professional development (CPD) for health professionals in Australia and New Zealand. To provide further CPD opportunities, registered delegates can view sessions (which are all recorded) on demand for six months after the conference.

The ASCIA 2023 Conference program will include:

  • Current allergy and clinical immunology issues and research presented by more than 60 speakers.
  • Main sessions from 9am to 6pm AEST each day, with a focus on Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis on Wednesday; Drug, Insect, Animal and Respiratory Allergy on Thursday; and Immunodeficiency, Autoimmunity and Autoinflammatory Disorders on Friday.
  • Immunodeficiency Update for Nurses on Thursday.
  • Allergy Updates for Nurses and Dietitians on Friday.
  • Clinical Allergy Update for Medical Practitioners on Friday.
  • Presentations of clinical grand rounds (CGR) cases and selected posters on Tuesday.
  • Sponsored sessions each morning (Wednesday to Friday) and after lunch on Thursday  and Friday.
  • Recording of all sessions, to enable on demand viewing, resulting in further CPD opportunities.

To improve sustainability, the ASCIA 2023 Conference will feature:

  • A living, digital Program Book, which can be kept up to date and reduces waste associated with printing. 
  • Online posters, which reduces production costs and waste associated with printing and transporting of posters.
  • Namebadges that will do not include a plastic holder and recyclable lanyards.

Key Dates:

  • Tuesday 2nd May 2023 - Registration and abstract submission will open at
  • Tuesday 4th July 2023 – Closing date for earlybird registration and abstract submission

The ASCIA 2023 Conference will provide an international standard of CPD for ASCIA members and other health professionals working in allergy and clinical immunology. It will also provide an opportunity for important in-person interactions with colleagues.

We look forward to your involvement.
