Welcome

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 a 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 river and sea to showcase, discover and discuss the latest advances on digital and computational pathology.

Looking forward to see you in Porto,

Catarina Eloy, MD, PhD
Chair of the ECDP 2020
