30th European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2018)

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the European Society of Pathology and the Spanish Society of Pathology we would like to invite you to Bilbao, Spain to attend the 30th European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2018). ECP 2018 will be held from 8 to 12 September 2018 at the Euskalduna Conference Centre next to the river Nervión. Join pathologists and scientists from all over the world to celebrate the 30th anniversary of ECP and become updated on all aspects of diagnostic and molecular pathology.

The theme for the ECP 2018, “Pathology: Path to Precision medicine” highlights Pathology as the cornerstone of precision medicine and underlines the central role of the pathologist in the multidisciplinary teams that guide patient management in the 21st century. Pathologists collaborating with molecular biologists, geneticists, bioinformaticians, and information technologists provide accurate diagnoses, prognostic and predictive information essential for treatment decisions tailored to the individual patient.

ECP 2018 will have organ-based sessions prepared by the ESP working groups, joint sessions with other pathology and clinical scientific societies, trainee-led sessions, and special sessions focusing on advances in molecular and digital pathology, quality assessment, education, histotechnology and public awareness.

Keynote lectures, as every year, will be the highlight of the programme with eminent colleagues enlightening us on different aspects of pathology and beyond. The ECP 2018 oral free paper and best poster sessions will be a great platform to present and discuss exciting new translational research in all areas of pathology, while the challenging diagnosis of rare entities will be showcased in poster sessions.

Attending the 30th ECP will also give you the opportunity to learn more about Bilbao and the Basque Country.

We look forward to welcoming you and having an unforgettable time in vibrant Bilbao!

Welcome Address

Dear Colleague,

The European Society of Pathology would like to invite you to Amsterdam, The Netherlands, for the 29th European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2017). It will be held from 2 to 6 September 2017 at the Amsterdam RAI. Join us for an energetic congress that will update you on all aspects of diagnostic and molecular pathology.

The motto of the congress – Pathology for Patient Care – will highlight the added value of the pathology science and discipline in providing care and improving health outcomes for patients and population.

The scientific programme will focus on the central role of pathology and its current clinical applications, translational research, near-future innovations and the longer perspectives of paradigm shifts (integrated ‘omics’ care). Highthroughput assays, bioinformatics and precision diagnostics will pervade the programme more than ever.

ECP 2017 will also provide a unique occasion for updating our knowledge in pathology through up-to-date teaching courses highlighting news and views in diagnostic pathology.

Moreover, the ECP 2017 will provide a platform for mingle & meet, between pathologists and scientists alike, from all over the world.

We look forward to welcoming you and spending a great time in Amsterdam.

President of the European Society of Pathology
