Additional Information

We are happy and proud to host this meeting in Geneva, Switzerland for the first time, and we trust that this event will be a memorable one both scientifically and socially. The University of Geneva has long been involved in research in the fields of islet science and diabetes, and has an established and successful clinical islet transplantation program. These assets are reflected in the composition of the local Scientific Committee. The Scientific Committee is committed to put up a program that will appeal to scientists, physicians and surgeons involved in basic and clinical research, in pancreas and islet transplantation. In addition to the customary invited and free communications in plenary and concurrent sessions, we propose to organize workshops and “state-of-the-art” lectures in all major fields covered by IPITA. The meeting will take place on the shores of beautiful Lake Geneva with spring in full swing, and with plentiful opportunities for an enjoyable social program. We look forward to welcoming you to Geneva for a meeting that we want to hold in a scientifically stimulating, yet relaxed atmosphere.
