   Recently, there has been an explosion in information about the
   regulation of inflammation, immunity, and immunopathology in the lung.
   Despite these advances, we still have only a rudimentary understanding
   of how these responses relate to the lung environment or how and why
   they translate into beneficial or detrimental effects, health or
   disease. The goals of this meeting are to (i) bring together
   allergists, immunologists, microbiologists and vaccinologists to
   discuss pulmonary inflammation and immunity in the context of lung
   biology and (ii) to build on this understanding to develop improved
   vaccines and therapeutic interventions for inflammatory conditions and
   infectious diseases that affect the lungs. Expert talks in plenary
   sessions will present the latest research in the field. Workshops and
   additional talks will add late-breaking cutting-edge results. The
   meeting will considerably advance our understanding of respiratory
   immunity.
