Dear National Society Colleagues.
Before the end of 2018, we thought that it would be a good time to write again about preparations for next year’s ECCN in Warsaw. We would like to thank for your contributions with Scientific Symposia and teaching course proposals. You can find the whole list of teaching courses and Scientific symposia at the website. We are about to add to the website the list of Tips for Trainees slots which we began in Budapest, but which will be more extensive and we hope better than then, which was our first attempt.
We hope you, and your national societies, are popularising ECCN2019 with your members and that as many as possible will attend.
The EC-IFCN has agreed on to offer 25 bursaries for ECCN2109 worth up to €500 each, used to offset conference registration with the remainder to be used by bursary recipients for travel and accommodation. Please circulate the attached bursary call to your Society members which gives all the details. We will ask National Societies to rank candidates for these from their own countries, based on their submitted abstracts. The deadlines for submission and ranking are as below.
Applications for bursaries, to National Societies and ExCo EC-IFCN; Closing Date Tuesday, January 15th, 2019.
Forwarding of Bursary rankings from National Societies to ExCo EC-IFCN; Friday, March 1st, 2019.
The website is www.eccn2019.com and being updated regularly. Please have a look and circulate widely amongst your members.
With best wishes,
Jonathan Cole (Chair-ExCo EC-IFCN)
Hatice Tankisi (Secretary and treasurer, ExCo EC-IFCN)
