The 3 Onsite Tracks at the 13th EIP Conference Will Now Take Place Virtually

 
 

Sunday 28th November 2021

Following on from the latest rapid developments with the spread of the Omicron variant and taking into account the new travel restrictions and testing/quarantine requirements imposed by many countries over the weekend for people travelling from/to the Netherlands it now makes the organising of the onsite parts of the conference increasingly difficult for our speakers and delegates. In addition, we expect that many more countries will follow with new restrictions during the coming week. These developments will cause major disruptions to our delegates and speakers, who are frontline healthcare professionals, upon their return to their duties after the conference, especially when they are most needed in their facilities. 

 
 

EIP was determined to do all possible to give delegates and speakers who wanted to meet in person the opportunity to do so, and up until recently, this was still possible. However, with the latest developments with the spread of the Omicron variant, on top of the additional restrictions announced in the Netherlands on Friday 26th November, we now believe that it would now be unacceptable to organise a physical meeting at this time.

We have now taken the difficult decision to make also the 3 onsite tracks virtual. All 7 parallel session tracks can now be attended only online. For those delegates who are still planning to travel to Amsterdam, you will access all sessions virtually as no sessions will be held onsite at the Postillion.

The EIP Secretariat will shortly contact you regarding how to access and attend the sessions online. If you choose to continue with your travel plans, you can then access all-conference sessions online, either from home/work or from Amsterdam. There will be no change to how you access the sessions for those already attending the Hybrid Conference virtually.

We hope you understand and support our decision, and we remain on hand to provide any assistance or information you may need over the coming days.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 13th EIP Conference online later this week.

ACCREDITATION STATEMENT AND CREDIT DESIGNATION

The 13th Excellence in Pediatrics Conference, Amsterdam (with Virtual option to attend for those who can't travel), Netherlands, 02/12/2021-04/12/2021 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME)

with 16 European CME credits (ECMECs).

Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. Through an agreement between the Union Europeenne des Medecins Specialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities. Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMECs are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
 
         
         
         
         
 

The conference will be organised in Amsterdam this December

Now more than ever, we need to meet and collaborate as a community, transforming this crisis into a new opportunity by discussing our collective local and national experiences and challenges in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, it’s essential that we meet to share best practices on the latest developments across pediatrics to help us all provide the best care possible to all the patients and families we support.
 
 

Option to attend or present online

For those who won't be able to travel, but also to help young investigators and residents present their work even from the most remote areas of the world without the burden of travel costs, we will continue to offer the option to attend and present online. It is now evident that online conferences have opened new horizons for young scientists to present their work and interact with their colleagues from across the world. Hence we are determined to keep this window open in the future so that no one will miss the opportunity to present their work.
 
 

We will unify the in-person and the online experience

EIP was proud to deliver a state-of-the-art virtual conference last year. We now have the technology and the expertise to deliver online most of the EIP meeting experience. We will build on this to unify the in-person and the online audiences as if they were all attending in one place, projecting virtual presentations in the halls while also broadcasting in-hall presentations online. Both audiences will interact with the speakers asking questions and participating in polls in the same manner.
 
 

Combining in-Person and Online you get 5 times more educational content

In the past, a delegate would have been able to be present in one hall at each given time (getting about 20 hours of education from the whole conference) even when we had 6 halls in total with sessions taking place in parallel. While now with all sessions being broadcasted and then recorded any attendee will have access and can attend all sessions; either in-person in the hall (or live online if attending virtually) and then all other sessions can be watched online as recorded videos. In that way, each attendee will receive 100 hours of education compared to the previously available 20 hours.
 
         
         
         
   
     
 

PROGRAM, SPEAKERS AND CME

The scientific program can be viewed as a series of parallel speciality conferences covering the latest hot topics and developments across specialities of pediatrics. Academics, leading experts and researchers from across the world will deliver 100+ hours of sessions, in 6 parallel streams, across 3 days featuring state-of-the-art presentations on topics covering 11 specialties; Pediatric Dermatology, Pediatric Rheumatology, Pediatric Gastroenterology, Pediatric Nutrition, Pediatric Endocrinology, Pediatric Infectious Diseases, Pediatric Respiratory and Allergies, Pediatric Neurology, Emergency Pediatrics, Neonatology, Adolescent Medicine.

We will have our 13th conference at the newest, state of the art convention centre in the Netherlands: Postillion Convention Centre Amsterdam. An eye-catching building with the most innovative technological facilities. The venue's 17 halls and break out rooms will offer you a unique educational experience. The Postillion Hotel Amsterdam is very conveniently located, between the city and the arterial roads. EIP has also secured a limited number of hotel rooms at preferential rates for the conference delegates.

IN-PERSON AND ONLINE PRESENTATIONS OF ABSTRACTS 

While we look forward to meeting all authors in Amsterdam this December we also welcome all those who prefer to present their abstracts online in 2021. We have the technology and the expertise to deliver online most of the EIP meeting experience. Even if in-person interaction in the social and networking events will not be the same for virtual attendees, we are sure that many of the additional benefits they will get will compensate them. We will unify the in-person and the online audiences as if they were all attending in one place, projecting virtual Presentations in the halls while we will broadcast in-hall presentations online. Both audiences will interact with the speakers asking questions and participating in polls in the same manner. Collaborative networking events will be open for online attendees to join virtually.
