Welcome Message

Dear friends and colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the AEPC 2022 - 55th Annual Meeting of the Association for European Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology ,in Geneva, Switzerland between May 25-28, 2022 and hosted by the Local Organizing Committee from the "Centre Universitaire de Cardiologie et Chirurgie Cardiaque Pédiatrique" a collaboration between the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG) and Vaudois University Hospital Center (CHUV) in Lausanne to be the strong entity for Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology and Surgery

We are dedicated to offer you a exciting Annual Meeting. The Organizing Committee, consisting of local and national members, will be working closely with the AEPC Scientific Committee and Working Groups to build a strong scientific programme. Particular emphasis will be placed on the latest advances and innovations while not forgetting fundamentals and educational opportunities, especially for junior specialists, trainees, nurses and students.

Hosting many international entities such as United Nations, Red Cross, etc., Geneva is a multinational city located centrally within Europe with an easy access international airport. Being a walkable and human-sized city, Geneva offers a real traveller experience with free public transport offered by the city authorities. There are a lot of close-by sites for our participants to visit at their free times after meeting hours. Day trip to Monc Blanc, a lake tour, visiting the United Nations building or CERN, walking along the lake side and at the streets of the old city are only some options.

As the Annual Meeting is being organized and hosted by the Local Organizing Committee of both university hospitals of Western Switzerland we encourage you to also hop on a daily tour to Lausanne which is considered as the world wide capital of sports administration and home to the famous Olympic Museum or to join the optional post-meeting tour.

The AEPC 2022 Annual Meeting will be held in CICG, the International Conference Centre Geneva which is located very centrally in the city and accessible easily with various public transport options.

AEPC 2022 will be the perfect place to gather again after a long period of virtual events and to learn, explain, discuss about the scientific advances in our specialty in-person.

After a two years of break because of the pandemic, we would be delighted to welcome you in Geneva next year!

Join us for Swiss touch and let’s meet in real life again!

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee
