International Conference on Paediatric Infectious Diseases

Fri, 16 May 14 12:16

Dublin played host to a major international conference on paediatric infectious diseases recently as over 2,500 clinicians, epidemiologists and scientists gathered in the Dublin Convention Centre under the auspices of the European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases for their 32nd annual general meeting.

The event entitled ‘Paediatric Infection : The Global Challenge’ took place from 6th – 10th May 2014 with a comprehensive programme including keynote lectures, symposia, educational workshops and ‘meet-the-expert’ sessions. 

Our congratulations go to the local organising committee, led by Prof Karina Butler (UCD Clinical Professor at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin) on a very successful meeting.  The 33rd annual meeting of the European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases will take place in Leipzig, Germany from the 12th – 15th May 2015.
