Dear friends,

It is a great pleasure to cordially invite you to the 8th Europaediatrics Congress, the annual highlight of the activities of the European Paediatric Association and the Union of National European Paediatric Societies and Associations (EPA-UNEPSA). Taking place every 2 years, this flagship event has become a wonderful tradition of bringing together pediatricians and child health professionals from all around Europe and other continents.

The 8th Europaediatrics Congress is jointly held with the 13th National Congress of Romanian Pediatrics Society. The event will take place for the first time in Bucharest, Romania June 7-10, 2017. Romania is proud to host this major event while we welcome EPA – UNEPSA.

International and European child health care specialists will lead the program with presentations that will give general pediatricians and child health care professionals up-to- date evidence based best practice information they require for their work in their home countries. Child care experts from European societies will lead plenary presentations, guideline sessions and personal practice sessions in an innovative format of sharing good practice. One focus will be professional management of important pediatric conditions. The special interactive sessions will be more valuable to the practitioners.

Congress participants can also attend interesting debates on varying subjects of pediatric health care interest and participate in workshops on relevant topics that will expand their knowledge of providing and promoting the wellbeing of children around the world.

In addition to the scientific program, you will find that Bucharest is lovely to visit in summer. Also, there are many nearby countryside villages and regions in Romania that offer you wonderful possibilities to explore and spend memorable days with your family, friends and colleagues.

We look forward to hosting all of you at our Congress in Bucharest.

Marin Burlea, President of 8th Europaediatrics
