On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is a great pleasure to welcome and invite you all to the 8th Larissa International Congress of Internal Medicine, which will take place on 17-19 March, 2016 at Larissa Imperial Hotel, in Larissa, Greece.
The Congress is organized with the joint effort of the Institute of Internal Medicine and Hepatology and the Department of Medicine and Research Laboratory of Internal Medicine of the University of Thessaly Medical School, Larissa, Greece. We are also glad that the Congress is organized in cooperation with the Hellenic Association for the Study of the Liver and the Hellenic Stroke Organization, under the auspices of the University of Thessaly Medical School.
The Organizing and Scientific Committees, aiming to keep up with the educational nature of the previous successful Congresses, have prepared a stimulating scientific programme that will bring topics with broad, interdisciplinary interest to open dialogue and highlight the latest scientific achievements in a variety of diseases encountered in everyday clinical practice of Internal Medicine.
The multi topic scientific programme, given the importance of the international character of the Congress, is designed to feature rather interesting plenary state-of-the-art lectures, delivered by leading foreign and Greek experts, round tables designed in collaboration with different Scientific Societies covering hot topics and current issues in the field of Internal Medicine, up-to-date symposia along with satellite lectures and symposia.
Furthermore, the Congress will provide young-and not only-colleagues with a great opportunity to present their work, research and clinical experience through oral and poster presentations covering various section fields of Internal Medicine. Therefore we encourage interested colleagues to actively participate in the programme and submit abstracts of their work through the website of the Congress.
We trust that the three days experience in the Congress will become a great opportunity for younger to learn from the older, for experts to share their valuable knowledge and for all to gain from rewarding presentations and discussions.
Hoping to join us and meeting you all in Larissa in March 2016!
The President of the Organizing Committee
