EUPSA Congress Athens 2021 – Postponed

Dear EUPSA Members, Dear Friends,
First of all, we would like to wish you a safe and happy 2021!

Unfortunately, many countries report record numbers of new Covid-19 cases and high daily death tolls. Many Countries are currently introducing tougher restrictions and extend restrictions that are already in place. Health care is under severe pressure and vaccination programs have just been started.

We have come to the conclusion that it is not realistic to organize a face-to-face European Congress the 16th to 19th of June 2021.

However, we are optimistic and hope that it will be possible to meet again in September. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the 22nd European Congress in Athens to 1st to 4th of September 2021.

The Abstract submission deadline will be extended to 14th of March 2021.

The deadline for submission of manuscripts to European Journal of Pediatric Surgery and European Journal of Pediatric Surgery Reports will be extended to 18th of July 2021.

We look forward to see you all in Athens in September 2021!

Dear EUPSA Members,

The EUPSA recognizes that racism has a devastating impact on our goal to optimize the health of children and their families. The Canadian Association of Paediatric Surgeons have published a very important statement on, which the EUPSA fully supports.

The EUPSA will follow this statement to address issues of racism and discrimination pervasive in health care systems and societies all over the world.
