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.

The Reception will take place in the new Birmingham Library, 3rd floor Rotunda. As it is a public space please make sure that you have your conference badge and your ticket for the event so the library staff can identify conference participants. As it is going to be around closing time for the library, arrival is not possible through the escalators, but please take the stairs or the lift that is going to be reserved for the event.

The Gala Dinner is pre-booked and is organised in the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. Booking is now closed.  During the reception the famous Pre-Raphaelite Gallery of the Museum is going to be open for a short private viewing.
For the dinner an allocation of wine (Santiago Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc from Chile) will be provided on each table. For further drink options a cash bar is going to be operating in the newly refurbished Edwardian Tea Room that will be open for the duration of the evening.

For any futher enquires regarding the Thursday Evening Reception, Friday Night Gala Dinner or Saturday Cultural Excursion you can contact Clare Winter by telephone +44 (0)20 7451 6740 or by email clare.winter@rcpath.org

Please take a look at the gilded bronze statue of Matthew Boulton, James Watt and William Murdock the genius industrialists and entrepreneurs who contributed tot he fame of Birmingham and whom we chose to be the logo of the meeting and whom we picture on our commemorative medal.

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

We look forward to seeing you.
