Joint CDDW™-CLM Conference 2024
Canada
Organiser: Canadian Association of Gastroenterology / Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver / Canadian Network on Hepatitis C / Canadian NASH Network / Canadian Association of Hepatology Nurses / TRIANGLE

Welcome to CDDW™-CLM 2024

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Joint 2024 Canadian Digestive Diseases Week™ and Canadian Liver Meeting Conference, taking place March 1-3, 2024 in Toronto, Ontario.

As was last year, the Conference will be another joint effort between the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology and the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver, as well as their affiliates the Canadian Network on Hepatitis CCanadian NASH NetworkCanadian Association of Hepatology Nurses, and TRIANGLE. Attendees will have full access to two distinct conferences – CDDW™ and CLM – as well as exceptional Symposia and programming such as the Gastroenterology Resident in Training Course and Research Topics program at the same time and under a single roof. We’re also so excited about the numerous opportunities for delegates from across the GI and hepatology communities to come together for shared networking and social events as part of the collaborative Conference.

The second delivery of the Joint 2024 CDDW™-CLM Conference will be the premiere meeting for all members of the Canadian gastroenterology and hepatology communities including trainees, nurses and researchers with an interest in liver and gastroenterology.

Posters and trainee involvement will continue to be the cornerstone to the meeting, providing the latest research in gastroenterology and hepatology from across Canada with a daily poster session that will enable delegates to engage live with poster presenters. The Conference will showcase more than 400 abstracts and three days of lectures on the latest advances in research, medicine, and technology. The Conference also provides an opportunity for professionals in the field to discuss the medical, technological, ethical, regulatory and legal issues facing the profession today.

The Canadian perspective on liver and gastrointestinal disease research is necessary to address clinical practice concerns unique to Canada’s demographics, geography, and epidemiological trends; this must include specific attention to priority populations including Indigenous peoples. Our program will provide this Canadian perspective on liver and gastroenterology, stressing our combined ongoing commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and a revitalized commitment to climate change action.

Highlights of the 2024 Conference will include the high-profile plenary presentations, small group discussions, an extended menu of workshops, including the Hands-On session, a Small Intestine Ultrasound Workshop and a Fibroscan Workshop, as well as an enhanced version of the Mentorship Café. The Presidents’ Gala is a natural opportunity to enjoy an evening of networking, fun and live music.

Whether one works in patient care, research, education, administration, or the broader industry in general, our program offers something for everyone.

22nd European Congress of Internal Medicine
Turkey
Organiser: EFIM

Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to the 22nd European Congress of Internal Medicine, ECIM 2024 to take place in the beautiful city of Istanbul from 6 – 9 March.
ECIM 2024 will offer fantastic opportunity to explore the complexity in internal medicine – from bench to bedside, our slogan for this year.

ECIM 2024 will bring together physicians, researchers, and experts from a wide range of specialties to share knowledge, expertise, and ideas on the latest advances in the field of internal medicine.

The theme of this year’s conference, “Complexity in internal medicine – from bench to bedside,” speaks to the challenges and opportunities that face healthcare professionals in this rapidly evolving field. From the latest breakthroughs in clinical research to the development of new technologies and treatment modalities, internal medicine is a field that demands continuous learning and adaptation. ECIM 2024 will provide a platform for you to engage with these topics and come away with new ideas, insights, and skills that will enhance your own practice.

During ECIM 2024, you will have the opportunity to attend a diverse range of sessions, including keynote speeches, panel discussions, and workshops. The scientific program will also provide the young -and not only- colleagues with a great opportunity to present their work, research and clinical experience through oral presentations and posters covering all the fields of Internal Medicine.
You will also have the opportunity to network with colleagues from around the world, sharing your own experiences and building new professional relationships that can help advance the field of internal medicine.

On behalf of EFIM Executive Committee and ECIM 2024 Scientific Committee we are welcoming you to ECIM 2024 in Istanbul.

Let’s meet in Istanbul where East meet West!

Sincerely,

Prof. Ricardo Gomez Huelgas

ACG/FGS Annual Spring Symposium
USA
Organiser: ACG/FGS

Join your colleagues for the ACG/FGS Annual Spring Symposium at the Naples Grande Beach Resort in the beautiful Naples area of Florida. The program is designed to fill your mornings with the latest clinical updates while keeping your afternoons free to explore and enjoy the many amenities the area has to offer. Daily sessions wrap up by 12:30 pm, giving you plenty of opportunity to reflect, relax, and unwind.

The Naples Grande Beach Resort boasts pampering spa options, sandy beaches, and sophisticated accommodations. Relax with a sunset stroll along the resort’s three miles of white sand beach along the stunning Gulf of Mexico or visit Naples’ charming historic district.

The current pace of scientific discovery makes mastery of advancing knowledge, new diagnostic techniques, and progress in therapeutics a challenge for gastroenterologists or generalists. At the same time, the rigors of the profession demand a deeper understanding of changes occurring within the healthcare system. Nationally recognized expert faculty will provide insight into these areas through a combination of didactic presentations and interactive discussions. Attendees will leave the program ready to immediately implement the knowledge gained to improve their clinical practice.

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

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.
