Palais des Congres de Paris *Paris, FRANCE Visit the Venue to read more
It is our great honour and pleasure to invite you all to the 7th Congress of the European Academy of Paediatric Societies, EAPS 2018 in Paris.
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 scientific presentations that have subsequently appeared in high-impact journals.
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 2018, we are very happy that ten other important European paediatric societies have accepted our invitation to join as collaborating societies: 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), the European Paediatric Neurology Society (EPNS), the European Society for Paediatric Nephrology (ESPN), the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE), the European Association of Palliative Care: Paediatric Taskforce (EAPC), the Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology (AEPC) and the French Society of Pediatrics (Société Française de Pédiatrie).
The central feature of the Congress is the free scientific papers. Submitted abstracts to EAPS 2018 are guaranteed to facilitate robust debates, thoughtful conversations and fruitful collaborations, with the future of paediatrics being greatly enhanced as a result.
We are fortunate to have attracted some world-renowned scientists to give the plenary talks, including Professor Anthony Costello from the WHO, Professor Alain Fischer from Paris and Professor George Chrousos from Athens.
We also want to highlight the pre-congress courses on Monday and Tuesday (October 29-30), 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 high-quality paediatric care and training worldwide has a powerful advocate in EAPS 2018. Its compelling and comprehensive scientific programme will unveil the latest research and analysis in the field, as presented by a renowned international faculty.
Paris is a city that needs no introduction. The Congress centre is in the heart of the city, with easy transportation access as well as access to the culinary, cultural and entertainment venues that make this one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Mark your calendars for EAPS in Paris - October 30 – November 3, 2018.
We are looking forward to welcoming you all there.
