Important updates

We have developed a Congress app which you can download by clicking on the Android/iOS logo on this homepage. You will find the programme, the abstracts, information about the speakers and delegates and sponsors and exhibitors. You will also be able to send questions to the moderators who will select the most relevant ones to be answered by the speaker.

Simultaneous translation

Simultaneous translation will be provided from English into Spanish for the Congress, Precongress Course and Hands on Course (subject to demand). Other languages can be provided for the congress and precongress course with a minimum of 25 delegates per language.
