First launched in Florence in 2011, CORA has since become a major event in the field of rheumatology and autoimmunity thanks to its fresh and intuitive structure featuring debate sessions on burning and controversial issues.


Today, new autoimmune syndromes are being discovered and described rapidly by leading scientists and these findings raise further questions related to the clinical diagnosis, management, as well as the pathogenesis of rheumatic and autoimmune disorders. CORA 2019 will feature major and short debate sessions, scientific lectures, abstract presentations, sponsored blocks, as well as an exciting new session type: the "Curbside Consults" where difficult clinical cases will be discussed by top experts.


Abstract Deadline: 16 October 2018

Early Registration Deadline: 12 December 2018


We await to see you in the magnificent Florence, the capital of Tuscany.
