Dear colleagues and friends,
Welcome to Florence .
On behalf of the European Association for Haematopathology (EAHP) and the Society of Hematopathology (SH), as chair of the local organizing committee, I am honoured and pleased to invite you to Florence, Italy, to attend the 21st Meeting of the EAHP, which will be held from 17–22 September 2022. The meeting venue will be the “Palazzo dei Congressi” which is hosted inside the 19th century Villa Vittoria. This building boasts a prestigious congress hall, which provides state of the art technology and infrastructure. The meeting venue is located at the heart of the city surrounded by numerous excellent hotels.
Why Florence? It is hard to say anything about Florence that has never been said before. One of the most visited and loved cities in the world, Florence meets the modern visitor’s desire for culture, fun, fashion design, enogastronomy and nature. With its monumental buildings and magnificent palaces, Florence is an open-air museum covering medieval, renaissance, gothic, and neo-classical periods. The Uffizi Gallery stands among the most celebrated collections worldwide but, beside this, Florence embraces many beautiful art galleries and frequently hosts intriguing exhibitions and events. Florence is easy to reach with daily direct flights from the main European destinations and from all over the world with only one stop.
An exciting and interdisciplinary scientific programme is being currently delineated by the scientific committee. The general outline of the meeting will follow the traditional – and very successful – format. It will start with the educational session, followed by the bone marrow and lymphoma symposia and workshops. The scientific programme will include “Meet the Professor” sessions, satellite symposia and poster presentation and discussion. The faculty will include internationally renowned speakers, that will address the most recent issues in the field of haematopathology, with particular attention to the introduction of the new technology to the diagnostic practice. The workshop will cover the most controversial issues in haematopathology, including emerging diseases in large B cell lymphomas (IRF4 LBCL and its differential diagnosis), Burkitt like 11q alterations and its differential diagnosis (BL, PTLD, etc), cavity associated lymphomas, EBV+ nodal T/NK cell lymphomas and cytotoxic T-cell lymphomas.
I am sure that you will enjoy this meeting, both scientifically and socially.
The local organizing committee is preparing an exciting social programme for all delegates, one that promises to be a unique experience. September is usually a great time of the year in Tuscany and tours and social events will also be available to help participants more fully experience the city and surrounding areas.
Updates on the congress will be regularly provided on the homepage. CME-Continuing Medical Education will be provided.
See you in Florence in 2022!
