Welcome

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is with enormous pride and pleasure that we invite you all to attend the forthcoming joint meeting of the Paediatric Pathology Society and the Society for Pediatric Pathology, in Birmingham (the UK one) from 4-6th September 2014.

The meeting was granted 10 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).

The meeting also marks the Diamond Jubilee of the PPS.

The meeting is being held at the famous International Conference Centre (ICC) in the heart of the city, next to the restored canals and close to all of Birmingham’s amenities, hotels and shopping.

The programme has been assembled to offer something for everyone, with two symposia, a slide seminar and two keynote lectures. Abstract submission is now closed. We have received a large number of abstracts for the scientific sessions and the programme looks like being of a high standard.

If you have a bit more time, Birmingham is a great base for exploring the historic towns of the Midlands, such as Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick, and the beautiful countryside or a starting point for a tour of the UK.

We look forward to seeing you in September.

Phil Cox, Tamas Marton, Beata Hargitai

The meeting is being held in the International Conference Centre (ICC) at the heart of the UK’s second city and within walking distance of the main hotels, attractions and the shopping. The Conference dinner will take place in the nearby Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, home to an internationally important collection of pre-Raphaelite art.

Birmingham is at the heart of the UK’s road and rail networks and the international airport receives flights from many parts of Europe and also from further afield. Fast trains from London take around 80 minutes, for those arriving at Heathrow or attending the European Congress of Pathology.
