Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology (AEPC) 52nd Annual Meeting
Megaron Athens International Conference Centre #ATHENS , GREECE
Dear friends and colleagues,
We are proud and honored to welcome you to the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology, which will be held in the historic City of Athens on May 09-12, 2018. Greece is the birthplace of the highest achievements of human civilization: democracy, philosophy, theater, mathematics, logic and natural science. Athens stands for more than 25 centuries as the living symbol of all these values of our common culture.
The AEPC Annual Meeting has a long tradition of bringing together not only Pediatric Cardiologists, but also specialists from all the disciplines dedicated to the care of patients with congenital heart disease, from fetal life to adulthood, with delegates coming both from Europe and from around the world, in ever increasing numbers.
The Scientific Program is founded on the multidisciplinary approach to the field of Pediatric and Congenital Heart Disease, focusing on latest developments, innovations, and future trends. At the same time, great emphasis will remain on basic and advanced educational opportunities, targeting not only accomplished specialists, but also more junior staff, trainees, nurses and students. There will be expert invited lectures and exciting sessions of the AEPC Working Groups, with broad and in - depth coverage of the varied topics of interest in our field. Highlights will include the Update Course on Transposition of the Great Arteries, and several sessions co-organized by multiple AEPC Working Groups, which will provide all-around coverage of important issues including morphology, imaging, as well as catheter and surgical interventions.
We are happy to announce increasing participation of surgical colleagues throughout the Program, including in special sessions co-organized with the European Congenital Heart Surgeons Association (ECHSA), the European Association for Cardiothoracic Surgery (EACTS), and the Japanese Society for Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery (JSPCC). In addition, there will be joint sessions with other Scientific Societies, such as the Hellenic Society for Pediatric Cardiology. Of course, a high quality program of abstracts with both oral presentations and poster sessions will be provided. These sessions will allow ample opportunities for colleagues to showcase their work, while engagement in fruitful discussions with other participants and world renowned experts will be emphasized. As is traditional for AEPC, there will be prize awards for best submitted papers.
We also kindly invite you to visit the Exhibition, where the latest in technology will be presented by industry leaders, and to attend the most interesting Satellite Sessions supported by our Industry Sponsors.
Furthermore, you will be able to enjoy an exciting Social Program. The venue of the Meeting is the spectacular Megaron Concert Hall in the center of Athens, walking distance from most hotels and in close proximity to renowned historical sites. We encourage you to experience some of the innumerable opportunities for cultural education and sightseeing which Athens and Greece have to offer.
We cordially invite you to attend the 2018 AEPC Meeting in Athens, confident that you will enjoy a memorable, highest level scientific event, combined with the opportunity to meet colleagues from around the world, to be inspired for innovation and new collaborations, and to have a great time!
