25th European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2013)
25th European Congress of Pathology
Pathology – A gate to the future
31 August – 4 September 2013, Lisbon
Centro de Congressos de Lisboa, Portugal
The 25th European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2013) will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, from 31 August to 4 September 2013. On behalf of the European Society of Pathology and the Portuguese Society of Pathology / Portuguese Division of the International Academy of Pathology we would like to invite you to join us in Lisbon.
We will do our best to guarantee a valuable scientific, educational and social experience for all participants. The motto of the Congress – Pathology: A gate to the future – is symbolically represented by the Tower of Belém. The icon of the ECP 2013 is a monument close to the Congress Center that commemorates the voyage towards the unknown of the Portuguese navigators. Pathology, in addition to its traditional clinical problem solving role, is entering uncharted waters – this notion is reflected in the scientific programme that may be summarised as an inclusive programme on Personalised Pathology.
As you may know, the Lisbon Congress was initially coined the seven Ps Congress: Pathology after Prague; Prognosis; Predictive; Personalized; Portugal and Pleasure. The finalised social programme has expanded this number of Ps: a couple of exciting Parties, including a Sunset Rave Party (a première in ESP Congresses), a Performance of choral music pieces from Portuguese speaking countries and a welcome ceremony devoted to FADO (it is a pity it is not written PHADO).
We are looking forward to welcoming you and spending a great time in Lisbon.
