Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to attend the 49th Meeting of European Pancreatic Club in 2017.

The meeting will be an important event in European pancreatology and related areas, where basic scientists and clinicians can exchange ideas and novel research findings, and also deepen their scientific knowledge. It provides the opportunity for participants to get first-hand information on new developments, current and future trends and will additionally provide an ideal opportunity for international networking. The venue at the Basic Medical Science Center of Semmelweis University sets the stage for science, clinical practice and industry to unite in professional advancement.

Such a meeting is not an unprecedented event in Hungary. In 1988, Professor Miklós Papp organized the EPC meeting in Budapest, just before the iron curtain fall off between West and East. Then we also had a very joyful and scientifically rich conference of the Club in Szeged in 2009. In 2017 we will attempt to get close to those events.

The conference will cover all hot basic science and clinical science topics that are in the scope of pancreatology, giving a good balance of the basic and the clinical side, and also emphasizing the mutuality of them. It will be organized around scientific symposia, invited lectures, oral sessions and poster sessions, all of this according to the rules of EPC.

We are aware of the financial difficulties that affect many universities and professionals in Europe today. This may be also the case for travelling to EPC meetings. Therefore, the organizers will make all efforts to provide considerable support to young researchers through as many EPC travel stipends as possible, just as it happened in the past, and also accumulate additional funding to widen the scholarship program.

Our organizing committee works hard to ensure the success of the 49th Meeting of the EPC. But only you, who attend can turn the meeting to real success both in scientific and in social aspects.

When planning to come to Budapest, please consider that this is one of the most beautiful European cities, with plenty to see and plenty to do besides cultivating science.

We look forward to seeing you in Budapest, June 28 - July 1, 2017.

Yours sincerely,

Gábor Varga
