Cytokines 2022 Hybrid Meeting and ILC4 participants are NOT required to pay the hotel’s resort fees and DO include complimentary WiFi, however, the following statement is still included on our reservations site, but it DOES NOT APPLY TO OUR GROUP DISCOUNTED ROOM RATES AS LONG AS SUPPLIES LAST.
There are direct flights to Kona Int’l Airport from many cities such as Tokyo (starting in August), San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, Sacramento, Oakland, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Las Vegas, Denver. Many other cities fly to Hawaii but must change planes at Honolulu International Airport. Most airlines have institute FREE CHANGES even at their basic fares. For more details please click here.
Cytokines 2022 Hybrid: 10th Annual Meeting of the International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS) to be held jointly with the 4th International Conference on Innate Lymphoid Cells (ILC4), September 20-23, 2022, at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, Big Island, Hawaii, USA, with synchronous Virtual Meeting Platform including live streamed and on-demand access to all sessions. Posters will be available both in-person (for those in Hawaii) AND as iPosters.
Our industry partners will again participate with interactive virtual exhibit booths and Breaking News presentations to be live streamed from their booths during all the coffee breaks and after the opening session AS WELL as in-person tabletop exhibits. There are many breaks in the program for participants to visit the virtual exhibits, posters, iPosters and in-person exhibitors. Many of our pharmaceutical company and biotech partners will be promoting Careers with Senior Scientist and Postdoc opportunities, through their exhibit booths and/or their Breaking News sessions.
Cytokines 2022 Hybrid Meeting with ILC4 would not be possible without the continued support of the leading companies advancing the most promising cytokine-based therapies and inhibitors, cell analysis, biomarkers, antibodies, reagents, and assay tools working on behalf of ICIS member researchers across the globe. Partnerships between the Society and Industry works to advance cytokine biology impacting all aspects of medicine, leading to new treatments in inflammation, autoimmune diseases, cancer, COVID-19, infectious disease and immune-mediated conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. Also, don’t miss the Pre-Conference Session sponsored by The Korean Association of Immunologists: Cytokines and tissue resident lymphocytes

Cytokines 2022 Hybrid meeting welcomes as joint meeting collaborators, the 4th International Conference on Innate Lymphoid Cells. Registered attendees of one meeting may participate in sessions of the other. There will be a few combined sessions and social functions, with the two programs otherwise diverse and comprehensive organized under the following themes:
CYTOKINE OHANA: BRIDGING PHYSIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS
ILCs IN TISSUE HOMEOSTASIS AND DISEASE
PLANNING COMMITTEE & CO-CHAIRS
By sharing a high profile island location attractive to in-person visitors — as well as the hybrid/virtual meeting platform to have improved access for those who may still not be comfortable, or just do not wish to fly around the world to hear about the latest research, the partnership between the International Cytokine & Interferon Society (ICIS) and the 4th ILC meeting (originally planned for October, 2020 in San Francisco) is a natural one. We hope you will plan on joining us in Hawaii in September, 2022 and that the cutting edge information on ILC’s will complement and further your own cytokine biology research.
The primary objective of the ILC program is to cover basic and translational aspects of innate lymphocyte biology in model mouse systems and in humans as well as their roles in tissue homeostasis, immune regulation and disease by combining talks by invited expert speakers and selected abstract submissions to be presented as oral or poster presentations.There will be sessions dedicated to allergic, metabolic, neurologic, and other inflammatory diseases, as well as stem cells and cancer. The meeting will bridge the gap between the scientists performing basic research across the scope of these recently described cells and those working to harness this knowledge to develop strategies for interventions that restore tissue homeostasis.
Following the Joint Meeting, for those still hungry for in-person scientific exchange, the Interferon Lambda 2022 Satellite Meeting will take place on Saturday and Sunday mornings at the Hilton Waikoloa Village. The purpose of the Meeting is to promote research on IFN-λs by enhancing interdisciplinary communication and encouraging new collaborations.

An additional registration fee is required, virtual and on-demand access will be available following the sessions.
