On behalf of the Brazilian Society of Immunology, we are pleased to invite you to attend our XLII Annual Meeting, which will be held in Salvador, State of Bahia, Brazil, from October 2nd to 6th, 2017 at Hotel Deville, in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil.

All these reports caught the attention of immunologists and the field experienced an enormous growth.
