Welcome to Dublin
Dear Colleagues and Friends
We are delighted to invite you to the 53rd ESPE meeting in Dublin in 2014 and welcome you with a céad mile fáilte which in Irish means 100,000 welcomes.
The theme of the meeting is prevention and therapeutic innovations in paediatric endocrinology. Plenary sessions, symposia, meet-the-experts, free communications and poster sessions in an interactive environment with international experts will enable exchange of high quality clinical information and basic science and promote international collaboration in research and clinical practice. The meeting will be held in the new glass convention centre in the heart of Dublin close to Trinity College founded in 1591 and the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland which are the home of many medical scholars and Nobel prize winners including Graves, Corrigan, Stokes, Colles and others. We hope that you will find time to enjoy Dublin, the current European City of Science and former European City of Culture and have an Irish coffee or a pint of Guinness and also visit the surrounding countryside which is rich in history, architecture, culture, sport and natural beauty.
We look forward to welcoming you to Dublin in September 2014.
ESPE President 2014
