It is our pleasure to invite you to Madrid, Spain, from May 23-27, 2017, for the 35th Annual Meeting of the European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID). Together with the Local Organising Committee and the International Scientific Committee, we have prepared an exciting programme with hot topics covering the entire field of paediatric infection-related diseases, and involving a large number of internationally renowned experts.
We believe that networking with colleagues from different backgrounds encourages new research ideas and facilitates the development of future multicentre projects. Therefore, we will give special importance, time and space to networking for both already established research networks as well as research newcomers to present their future projects.
In 2017, we will continue the technological advances that have improved our Meetings over the past years, which allow us to have slidesets and E-Posters online, as well as maintaining the successful Meeting Mobile App.
This year, we are looking forward to an outstanding programme featuring exciting and interesting plenary sessions in Dengue & Zika epidemics, evolutionary biology & microbiology, HIV cure for children and the latest in vaccine research & implementation. These will be complemented by an exceptional schedule of symposia sessions in Group A Strep, Tuberculosis, congenital infections, infections in the oncology child, antimicrobial stewardship, vaccines, diagnosis through host response and many more...
Easily accessible from across Europe and the world, Madrid is a vibrant and hospitable city that merges traditional and modern lifestyles in an unforgettable manner. After enjoying our outstanding scientific programme, you will be spoiled with native cuisine and sightseeing opportunities while experiencing the city’s lively nightlife.
We look forward to seeing you in Madrid next May!
