The World Congress – in Vienna and from home!

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of ESPGHAN and FISPGHAN we cordially invite you become part of the 6th World Congress of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition in Vienna, Austria from 02 – 05 June 2021. This truly international congress brings together experts from around the globe to promote and strengthen worldwide cooperation in our field.

We are still facing challenging times related to the COVID-19 pandemic that brings a lot of uncertainties in all fields. The safety and well-being of our attendees, partners and staff as well as the overall responsibility remains our guiding principle and therefore we decided to present the next World Congress as a hybrid meeting:
We are excited to welcoming you for a face to face meeting in Vienna, but you also have the opportunity to attend the World Congress online in a truly interactive way. If you should not be able to travel, please join our conference from home and let’s meet virtually!

Our goal is to combine the local Viennese spirit with a global perspective and we are using all our personal and technical potential to make the World Congress an extraordinary experience for both the onsite and online participants!

The scientific programme will include a diverse set of fascinating speakers presenting cutting-edge lectures and educational sessions, making the 6th World Congress of PGHAN a must attend event.
Striving for high level of science and education the scientific programme schedule has been adapted with consideration towards a global audience and their respective time zones trying our very best to meet the requirements of all participants. Please see below to get more information about the new format.

It will be again, as the previous years, the perfect opportunity to learn about the recent advances, discuss and share our clinical and research field interests, to present original works, to see old friends, and to meet new colleagues.

We look forward to seeing you in beautiful Vienna or meeting you virtually and trust you will find your participation enjoyable and rewarding!

For the time being we are wishing you all the best and please stay healthy!

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Almuthe Christina Hauer
Congress President
Prof. Berthold Koletzko
FISPGHAN President
Prof. Sanja Kolacek
ESPGHAN President
