During our professional lives, we have hugely valued the unique educational experiences that conferences have offered us over the years. Many of our best memories, from when we were students until we became experienced professionals, are related to the conferences we have attended with friends and colleagues from all over the world. We all remember exciting moments we have enjoyed, either when attending a groundbreaking presentation, or when sharing a relaxed evening with colleagues, in a fascinating city, after a conference day of intense training. Nothing will ever replace the beauty and the joy of human face-to-face interaction and scientific collaboration.
Unfortunately, with infections again increasing and short notice quarantines being put in place, it is now clear that it is still too early to host EIP2020 as a physical meeting.
EIP is fully prepared to deliver online the unique interactive experience we offer each year at our physical meeting. We are determined that none of our international colleagues will miss out on any of the conference sessions, nor the opportunity to present his or her work to colleagues from all over the world.
UNIQUE CROSS SPECIALTY EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE
EIP is designed to facilitate education across 10 main pediatric specialties. If you are interested in learning the latest developments in your speciality or you wish to stay tuned with what is new across the spectrum of main pediatric specialties, EIP is the conference to attend. The scientific program can be viewed as a series of parallel speciality conferences that cover the very latest hot topics and developments across 10 specialities of pediatrics. Academics, leading experts and researchers from across the world will deliver for 3 days in 5 parallel streams state-of-the-art presentations on topics on Dermatology, Rheumatology, Gastroenterology, Nutrition, Endocrinology, Infectious diseases, Respiratory and Allergies, Neonatology, and Adolescent Medicine.
WORK AND COLLABORATE WITH THE GLOBAL PEDIATRIC COMMUNITY
Now more than ever we need to be able to collaborate as a community, transforming this crisis into a new opportunity, one that will open a wide and ongoing discussion on our collective local and national experiences and challenges in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, especially with regard to our patients. We are working hard to make this virtual version of a physical meeting and an online collaboration a relevant and effective communication channel between clinicians and researchers, with positive effects reaching far beyond our annual conference. Take the opportunity to discuss with the leading experts and academics of your field. EIP is designed to facilitate interaction across all tracks and sessions. Hear the latest research outcomes, share your experience, discuss your ideas and get their feedback.
ENHANCE YOUR CAREER PRESENTING YOUR WORK TO A GLOBAL AUDIENCE
Let thousands of your global colleagues view your Poster and listen to your narrative for 12 months. We all know that poster viewings taking place in a conventional way (poster displays and poster walks during lunch breaks) offer only a limited time for authors to interact with attendees and experts. As a result, authors do not have the opportunity to show their work to as many of their colleagues as possible. With the ePoster Technology, posters will remain available online for viewing in the Poster’s library for 12 months. Authors will have the option to record and attach their narrative to their posters so that all viewers will be able to not only view the poster but also to listen to the author presenting his or her work, thus reaching a far wider audience.
ACCESS MANY MORE SESSIONS THAN THE ONES YOU WOULD ATTEND PHYSICALLY
Now that the conference is virtual you do not have to choose between parallel sessions. Attend them both. All sessions apart from being broadcast live will also be recorded and offered as videos on-demand for 3 months after the conference. This offers all attendees the option to access and watch the videos of sessions taking place in parallel halls removing the dilemma you face when you have to choose between two parallel sessions whilst being interested in both of them.
SAME EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE WITHOUT THE TRAVEL AND HOTEL COST
The digital version of the conference gives the opportunity to get exactly the same educational experience without the travel and accommodation cost. For many years there has been a great demand for conferences to offer the option for someone to register and attend online. This especially applies to attendees from developing countries, young scientists, postgraduate students and residents for whom often the travel cost has been a burden and a barrier to participation. In other words, a virtual conference model offers the opportunity to many more from across the world to attend and actively participate in the conference at a considerably lower cost without having to travel from their countries and take the time out from their current jobs. The Online Registration fee has been reduced to encourage high registration numbers.
