Welcome letter!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The Communities of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology in Wroclaw (PL; Prof. Dr. Alicja Chybicka / Prof. Dr. Krzysztof Kałwak), Dresden (D, Prof. Dr. Meinolf Suttorp) and Prague (CZ, Prof. Dr. Petr Sedláček) are welcoming You to the 11th International Midsummer Meeting on Pediatric Hematology/ Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation.

Hotel Mercure in well renowned mountain resort Karpacz hosted successfully participants of the 9th Midsummer Meeting in 2017. Karpacz is located in the heart of Polish Karkonosze Mountains in the triangle which is formed by the borders of the three countries of Poland, Czech Republic and Germany. Hotel Mercure is perfectly located right under the slopes of the highest peak in Karkonosze Mts (Sněžka, Śnieżka or Schneeberg).

The Symposium aims at the exchange of experience and knowledge as well as promotion of friendship between doctors and nurses from all neighbouring countries, incl. Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Baltic countries, Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, Hungary etc.

During the meeting established and new achievements in pediatric oncology, hematology and BMT will be discussed.

One of the highlights of the Meeting has always been an interactive session “Pretty kettle of Fish” with unusual case presentations and we are looking forward to taking part in this event on Saturday afternoon.

We strongly believe, that the longest days and shortest nights of the year will be filled with fruitful scientific exchange and an incendiary atmosphere of social networking events.

Have a nice meeting!

Welcome to Karpacz!

Krzysztof Kalwak, Alicja Chybicka, Meinolf Suttorp and Petr Sedlacek
