of the European Society of Paediatric Radiology (ESPR)
18–22 June 2018, Berlin/Germany
Conference chair: Prof. Dr. Franz Wolfgang Hirsch

Welcome note

Prof. Dr. Franz Wolfgang Hirsch

Dear Paediatric Radiologists,
Dear friends of European Paediatric Radiology

For the first time the European Society of Paediatric Radiology congress will be held in Berlin, this however, should not be the only reason for attending the ESPR congress in 2018.
On 18–19 June, we scheduled the two-day 43rd postgraduate course, which is directed at both – radiologists coming to the end of their specialist training as well as, young paediatric radiologists at the beginning of the professional career. Typical paediatric diseases and specialised imaging diagnostics in the childhood will be presented.

The ensuing, three-day 54th ESPR congress, 20–22 June, will offer, in addition to the scientific focus, a good mix of keynote lectures, interactive sessions and state-of-the-art lectures. This guarantees an interesting composition of special knowledge and repetition at a very high level. Smaller special focus sessions complement the conference and will also offer for specialised experts new aspects to their daily work.

Aside from the meetings, we will provide a platform that encourages networking and the development of professional cooperation. The Hilton congress hotel is located right in the heart of Berlin, directly at the most beautiful square in the city – one of the most beautiful squares in Europe. The venue also offers unbeatable accommodation conditions for this location, which should be used to get to know the prospering, lively Berlin from its most beautiful side right in downtown.

Have a try of Berlin’s cultural side and join the networking programme with a further highlight: We would like to discover together the shimmering, glittering Berlin of the 1920’s: instead of the traditional gala dinner, we invite you to party in the spirit of the "Roaring Twenties".

Please come and join us in Berlin for the ESPR 2018! We are looking forward to welcoming you!
Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Franz Wolfgang Hirsch
Congress chair of ESPR 2018 and the organising committee
