It is our great honour and pleasure to invite you all to the 6th Congress of the European Academy of Paediatric Societies, EAPS 2016. This time EAPS will take place in the beautiful and thriving city of Geneva.
The combined efforts and talents of the best and brightest minds in paediatrics have turned this biannual event into a major educational and research platform, attracting high quality presentations that have subsequently appeared in leading publications.
The Congress is organised by the three societies: the European Academy of Paediatrics (EAP), the European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR) and the European Society of Paediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care (ESPNIC). In addition, for EAPS 2016, we are very happy that six other important European paediatric societies have accepted our invitation to join as collaborating societies: the European Society of Neonatology (ESN), the European Respiratory Society (ERS), the European Society for Paediatric Anaesthesiology (ESPA), the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN), the European Society for Emergency Medicine (EUSEM) and the European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID).
The Congress' most important content is, as always, the free papers. Submitted abstracts to EAPS 2016 are guaranteed to facilitate robust debates, thoughtful conversations and fruitful collaborations, with the future of paediatrics being greatly enhanced as a result.
There will of course be plenary talks given by world-class authorities with a broad paediatric relevance. It will also be possible for representatives of the participating societies to submit suggestions for society designated sessions.
We also want to highlight the pre-congress courses on Thursday and Friday (October 20-21), where the organising societies offer training courses and courses for continuing professional development/education.
Indeed, the Congress programme will have something to offer to everyone. The promotion and advancement of quality paediatric care and training worldwide has a powerful advocate in EAPS 2016. Its compelling and comprehensive scientific programme will unveil the latest research and analysis in the field, as presented by a renowned international faculty.
Being set in Geneva, EAPS 2016 will also give us a lot of time and opportunities for networking and relaxation.
Situated along the banks of Lake Geneva at the foot of the Alps, Geneva sparkles as one of Europe's most beautiful cities. The city of Geneva is a cultural center second to none featuring world class entertainment, top rated restaurants and unlimited opportunities for recreation.
Mark your calendars for EAPS October 21-25, 2016!
We are looking forward to welcoming you all there.
