European Society of Pathology

Welcome to the 31st European Congress of Pathology in Nice!

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the European Society of Pathology (ESP) and the French Society of Pathology we would like to invite you to Nice, France, on the French Riviera Côte d'Azur, to attend the 31st European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2019). ECP 2019 will be held from 7 to 11 September 2019 at the Nice Acropolis Convention Centre located downtown in the heart of Nice. Pathologists and scientists from all over the world are invited to join the 31st ECP  and become updated on all aspects of diagnostic and molecular pathology.  

The theme for the ECP 2019, is direct and easy to memorize: “Pathology is Nice”. Indeed, in September 2019 Nice will be the capital of European and International pathology where pathologists and their collaborators, molecular biologists, geneticists, bioinformaticians, and information technologists will meet to share advances in our discipline that offers diagnostic, prognostic and predictive information essential for best patient care.

For ECP 2019, the ESP working groups will prepare State-of the Art organ-based sessions while collaborating pathology and clinical scientific societies will interact in joint scientific events. The energetic ESP Trainees’ subcommittee will plan sessions attractive for junior pathologists, while special sessions focusing on advances in molecular pathology, information technology, quality assessment, education, histotechnology and public awareness will complete the diverse programme. Every day, a keynote lecture by distinguished international experts will highlight burning issues in pathology and beyond. We envisage exciting oral free paper and best poster sessions where novel translational research will be presented, while difficulties in the diagnosis of rare disease entities will be discussed in poster sessions. 

Attending the 31st ECP will also give you the opportunity to learn more about the capital of the French Riviera, ideally located between the Mediterranean sea and the Alps in a landscape of incomparable natural beauty. Nice is a city of history, culture, art, nature and gastronomy whose maritime scents and earthy flavours will accompany you in every step.

We look forward to welcoming you and share with you a memorable time in charming Nice!
