57th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Pediatric Endocrinology
Megaron Athens International Conference Centre #ATHENS , GREECE
Dear colleagues and friends,
It is our pleasure to invite you to the 57th ESPE Annual Meeting to be held in Athens, 27-29 September 2018. The theme of the meeting will be "Narrative and Precision Medicine in Paediatric Endocrinology".
Plenary sessions, symposia, and meet-the-expert sessions will enable exchange of high quality clinical information and basic science with international experts. Perhaps more importantly, free communications and poster sessions will allow delegates from around the world to present and discuss their latest findings in an interactive environment and promote international collaboration in research and clinical practice. Please plan ahead and think of presenting your work in Athens in 2018!
The meeting will be held in the Athens Megaron Conference Centre which is conveniently situated in central Athens. A city with over 3000 years of history, philosophy, culture and art with vivid reminders of its ancient civilization such as the magnificent Acropolis visible from across the city, make Athens a truly unique and fitting destination to hold ESPE 2018.
We hope that you will come to Athens and find the time to visit our ancient landmarks with their magnificent ambience of a different dimension, relax on our glorious sunlit sandy beaches and enjoy the distinct aura that makes Athens such an alluring city.
We look forward to welcoming you to Athens.
George Chrousos and Bessie Spiliotis
on behalf of the Local Organizing Committee of ESPE 2018
