EASL School 2024
Denmark
Organiser: EASL

EASL School: Alcohol-related liver disease: diagnosis, risk stratification and management

This EASL school is dedicated to chronic alcohol related liver disease, covering all aspects of the patient’s journey through the healthcare system. From alcohol’s impact on citizens in the society, to early disease detection, biomarkers used in healthcare pathways from primary to secondary care, global and specialised interventions, and new innovations to improve patient management. With the school, we aim to combat the stigma and taboo associated with the harmful effects of alcohol, and replace it with fully updated and high-quality evidence highlighting the many opportunities for improving our patient’s life and health.  

The format of the school based on reversed-classroom format will be a platform for participants to discuss best-practice, gaps in knowledge, opportunities and barriers towards effective healthcare pathways. The topics will center around biomarkers and interventions: (1) existing and future diagnostic, monitoring and prognostic biomarkers, their applications, pitfalls and technical concepts. (2) existing and future interventions, whether pharmacological, psychosocial, or dietary, with a discussion of barriers and opportunities for giving patients’ access to effective treatments.

36th European Congress of Pathology
Italy
Organiser: ESP

Dear Colleague, The European Society of Pathology (ESP) and the Italian Society of Pathology invite you to the 36th European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2024). It will take place in the Congress Center, Fortezza da Basso, of the wonderful city of Florence from 7 – 11 September 2024. Over the last years ECP has become the worldwide leading congress in Pathology and the Florence congress will increase this legacy with top contributions in diagnostic training, research and education. For these few days in September, pathologists, clinicians, molecular biologists, geneticists, bioinformaticians, IT experts as well as our industry partners will gather together for ECP 2024 and will make Florence the capital of Pathology. It is a MUST event and you should be there! The motto of the ECP2024‚ Multidimensional Pathology – Cornerstone of modern diagnostics refl ects the fact that Pathology as no other medical discipline has integrated novel technologies – such as electron microscopy, immunohistology, molecular diagnostics and recently computational pathology (and more to come) – into its portfolio while safely relying on classical histology in its broad spectrum of diagnostic services. By this, Pathology has gained a position as one of the forefront innovation drivers in medicine and a key player in medical decision making. ECP2024 is dedicated to provide up-to-date insight into the whole spectrum of modern diagnostic and translational tools and achievements that characterize Pathology and its contribution to innovative diagnostics. The ESP working groups and affi liated Societies are planning excellent state-of-the art organ and topic-based sessions providing the latest developments in diagnostic Pathology. Special sessions focusing on hot topics and recent research fi ndings are organised jointly with our cooperating scientifi c societies. Keynote lectures held by internationally recognized experts will provide the cutting edge of Pathology, Research and Development and all these highlights are complemented by many oral free, poster and educational sessions which provide ample possibilities for presentation of your own research. It is up to you to participate and submit your abstracts to ECP2024. Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance and an unbelievable assembly of culture, history and sightseeing attractions needs no advertisement; make sure to spare some time to see the fascinating sites of this marvelous city which are only a short walk away from the Congress Center. ECP itself will contribute by an attractive social programme. Maybe also family and friends consider to join you? Make sure to plan for and book your slot at ECP 2024. We are looking forward to meeting you in Florence!    Peter Schirmacher President of the European Society of Pathology Gabriella Nesi Chair of the Local Organising Committee of ECP 2024

37th Workshop of the European Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group | EHMSG 2024
Portugal
Organiser: European Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are delighted to invite you to the XXXVIIth Workshop of the European Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group (EHMSG), which will take place in Porto, Portugal, from 12th to 14th September, 2024.

The EHMSG is a multidisciplinary group of scientists and clinicians who share a common interest in the field of Helicobacter and microbiota research. Our annual workshop is a unique opportunity to exchange knowledge, experience, and ideas on the latest advances and challenges in this dynamic and rapidly evolving area.

The scientific program of the workshop will cover a wide range of topics, including the epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of Helicobacter and microbiota-associated diseases, the molecular mechanisms and host-microbe interactions underlying these conditions, and the impact of Helicobacter and microbiota on inflammation, immunity, and cancer. The workshop will feature keynote lectures, oral and poster presentations, and interactive sessions with experts in the field.

The workshop will also offer you the opportunity to discover the beautiful city of Porto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Porto is renowned for its rich cultural heritage, its stunning architecture, its vibrant nightlife, and its famous port wine. You will be able to enjoy the charming riverside area of Cais da Ribeira, the majestic Torre dos Clérigos, the impressive Palácio da Bolsa, and the picturesque Vila Nova de Gaia, where you can visit the port wine cellars and taste the different varieties of this exquisite drink.

 

We are especially proud to host the workshop in Porto, a city with a long and distinguished tradition of gastric cancer research. Researchers from the University of Porto have been at the forefront of this field, contributing to the understanding of the etiopathogenesis of hereditary and Helicobacter pylori-induced gastric carcinogenesis, as well as the role of other microbial factors, such as the gut microbiota, in gastric cancer development and progression.

This is the second time that Porto has the honor of hosting the EHMSG workshop, after the successful XVth edition in 2002. We look forward to welcoming you to Porto and to sharing with you an exciting and memorable workshop.

Sincerely,

Professor Dr. Jose Carlos Machado
President of the EHMSG

2024 ESCMID/ASM Joint Conference on Drug Development to Meet the Challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance
Portugal
Organiser: ESCMID/ASM

ECCMID takes place annually in the spring and is recognized by academia, the clinical setting and industry as the largest European congress for the presentation and discussion of research in the fields of clinical microbiology and infection. The first European Congress of Clinical Microbiology (ECCM) was organised in 1983 in Bologna. After the Society's adoption of infectious diseases in the late eighties, the first ECCMID was held in 1991 in Oslo. Initially a biannual congress, ECCMID became an annual event after 1999 in Berlin. The venues of ECCMID have been systematically selected to ensure that the congress is easily accessible to colleagues from different areas of Europe on a rotating basis. Since its initiation, ECCMID has grown in size and stature and now attracts around 10,000 participants every year. The number of submitted abstracts has risen to over 3,000 of which 65% are accepted for oral or poster presentation. ECCMID is a congress that industry supports through sponsored symposia as well as a large and comprehensive exhibition of laboratory equipment, diagnostic tools and pharmaceutical products.

The 2024 ESCMID/ASM Joint Conference on Drug Development to Meet the Challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance will take place in Porto, Portugal on September 17-20, 2024. Make sure to save the date.

Antimicrobial drug resistance (AMR) is an urgent global health problem. New antimicrobial drug development is increasingly viewed as a priority by national and international bodies. Co-sponsored by the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) and the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID), this multidisciplinary meeting will address the challenges, opportunities and current requirements for antimicrobial drug development to address antimicrobial resistance.
