Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 16th European Congress on Digital Pathology (ECDP 2020), to be held in Porto, 13th-15th May 2020.

The ECDP is the non-profit annual meeting of the European Society for Digital and Integrative Pathology (ESDIP) and brings together pathologists, researchers, technicians, clinicians and industry representants.

This year, among other classical themes, we will focus on the artificial intelligence resources that empower the pathologist to provide precision diagnosis for better patient care. Moreover, we are also happy to continue to host the IHE and DICOM working group’s meetings during the event. Besides the usual contest highlighting the best work submitted as abstract, we will also promote challenges to research teams and residents.

An interesting social program is prepared for you to establish collaborations and relax after the daily sessions.

Join us in this beautiful city near the river and sea to showcase, discover and discuss the latest advances in digital and computational pathology.

Looking forward to seeing you in Porto,

Catarina Eloy, MD, PhD
Chair of the ECDP 2020

The Organizing Committee of the 16th European Congress on Digital Pathology invites pathology residents to submit a case where the use of digital tools was paramount for the case resolution.

1. The registration on the congress is mandatory as well as proof of residence.

2. Only one case will be accepted per participant.

3. The case must be submitted as a structured abstract with a maximum of 250 words until 20th January 2020. The abstract must include clinical information, diagnosis and a description of the digital tools used.

 

The best 6 cases selected by the Scientific Committee will be invited to present their case orally at My Digital Case – Resident’s Session during the ECDP2020.  During the session, the audience will vote for the best case that will be awarded 500 euros, free registration for the ECDP2021 and a one-year ESDIP membership!

The best 6 cases will be invited to send a short summary of the clinical information as well as a physical H&E slide to be digitized. The oral presentation of the case will be performed using, live, the digital H&E slide and simultaneously, the presentation of complementary techniques and the digital tools used.
