President’s letter March 2022

Dear friends,

In 2020, the congress in Amsterdam had to be postponed twice due to the pandemic, but now, thanks to the vaccines, the world is finally opening!

The new date for the Amsterdam congress is approaching, and quite many colleagues have already registered.

On the contrary to the huge congresses, the ESCD congresses have always offered an easy possibility for true communication between scientists. I think it is of utmost importance for the whole scientific community that the tradition of face-to-face gatherings continues. Since London 1996, I have always come back home from the ESCD congresses with lots of new ideas and knowledge, many acquired in
the coffee and lunch breaks and social events.

With this letter I want to encourage you to come on site in Amsterdam, also you who have poster presentations.

I wish you all welcome in Amsterdam in the ESCD congress on 8−10 June!

Book today at

On behalf of the Executive Committee

Kristiina Aalto-Korte
President ESCD
