Welcome to Krakow,
The 16th European Congress on Extracorporeal Circulation Technology is planned to be held in Poland in the city Krakow, from June 10th to 13th, 2015. On behalf of the Executive Board and the committee members of the Foundation European Congress on Extracorporeal Circulation Technology (FECECT), it is my honor and pleasure to invite you to be a participant in this congress.
The purpose of the FECECT congress is to provide a forum in which perfusionists, clinical researchers and scientists working in the field of extracorporeal circulation technology can meet each other, to share their experiences with participants from Europe, but also from countries beyond the European borders.
We hope that the information gained during sharing your experience in an open dialogue with different specialists will broaden your knowledge in regard to new medical devices and different approaches of the mentioned technology and related areas. Your active participation in the discussions and social events during the congress will be important in addition to make our congress as successful as possible.
Krakow is the second largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland situated on the Vistula river in the south of Poland. Krakow’s prehistory begins with evidence of a Stone Age settlement on the site of the Wawel Hill. For many centuries Krakow was the royal capital of Poland. The old town district of Krakow is home to about six thousand historic sites and more than two million works of art. It’s rich in a variety of historic architecture including Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque buildings. Major landmarks are the Main Market Square with St. Mary’s Basilica, with a famous wooden altar (Wita Stwosza) re-built in the 14th century and the Sukiennice Cloth Hall Cathedral and the St. Frorian’s Gate with the Barbican along the Royal Coronation Route. Krakow has 28 museums and public art galleries. Among them are the main branch of Poland’s National Museum and the Czartoryski Museum, with the latter featuring works by Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt. Krakow is also the major centre of education and the Jagiellonian University is the oldest university in Poland. Notable points of interest outside the city includes the Wieliczka salt mine, the Tatra Mountains 100 km to the south and the historic city of Częstochowa,
During the congress there will be interesting possibilities for accompanying persons, to take discovery tours in the city and the region to make also their stay very enjoyable.
I hope many delegates from all over the world will come to Krakow to participate in the 16th European Congress on ECT.
On behalf of FECECT I hope you as participant and your accompanying persons will enjoy the participation in our congress and your stay in Krakow.

WITAMY W POLSCE, WELCOME TO POLAND
WITAMY W KRAKOWIE , WELCOME TO KRAKOW
The ancient, royal city of Krakow is a unique symbol of Polish national identity. Enchantingly picturesque, rich in relics of all epochs, it represents the thousand-year-long history of the Polish nation. In Krakow you can admire many different styles of architecture, unique Romanesque objects, monumental Gothic edifices, and masterpieces by some of the most outstanding architects of the Renaissance and Baroque period.
Krakow has always been a centre of Polish culture and science. Damaged by fires, wars and foreign occupation, it has always revived and continued to fascinate with its beauty.
As long ago as the 11th century Krakow became the capital city of Poland. The Royal Castle and cathedral on Wawel Hill was the coronation and burial place of Polish monarchs. In the 13th century the layout of the city, which has been preserved till today, was established with what is still one of the biggest market squares in Europe (200 m x 200 m), a Gothic-Renaissance Cloth-hall (Sukiennice) and the Town-hall tower. The city fortification system was built in the 13-15th centuries, parts of the wall, four turrets and a barbican have survived to this day. The site of former walls has been replaced by a green belt called Planty. In the 14th century the Academy of Krakow (later the Jagiellonian University) one of the oldest universities in Europe was founded. Nicolaus Copernicus (Mikolaj Kopernik) was one of its students.
The 16th European Congress aims to encourage international co-operation in the exchange of knowledge regarding Extracorporeal Circulation Technology. To underline this intention, representatives of several Eastern and Western European countries have been invited to join the Organizing and Scientific Committees. The congress will also create an opportunity to improve contacts with researchers, clinical and laboratory specialist outside Europe.
The Scientific Committee hereby invites contributors who are associated with research on Extracorporeal Circulation Technology and related areas to submit abstracts.
