The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) 2015 Annual Meeting takes place from February 20 to 24 in Houston, Texas. The meeting aims to advance the knowledge and skills of attendees in the fields of allergy and immunology. The Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education accredits AAAAI and many of the sessions are therefore offered as continuing education credits. Highlights of the event include plenary sessions, keynote talks, seminars, and oral abstracts, as well as workshops and other interactive learning experiences.
Attendees of the conference enjoy access to a significant amount of event information on the mobile app, including a complete program with event sessions and speakers featuring calendar integration with popular apps like iCal and Outlook, as well as session sharing via email and social media. An interactive exhibitor map also enables event attendees to navigate the facility and bookmark individual booths or mark a booth as "visited". Other highlights include a city guide to Houston, bookmarking, and general information on AAAAI including access to the organization’s official website, Facebook, and YouTube pages. Users may also rate sessions and speakers directly in the app to provide feedback for event planners and organizers.
The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology, or AAAAI, focuses on the research and treatment of allergic immunologic diseases. The organization dates back to 1943, when the Society of Asthma and Allied Conditions and the American Association for the Study of Allergy joined to form the American Academy of Allergy. Today, the organization consists of over 6,500 worldwide members in fields ranging from allergists and immunologists to healthcare professionals.
