Record breaking abstract submissions!

Dear Colleagues,

I am thrilled to inform you that record breaking 2040 abstracts have been submitted for the World Congress 2016, São Paolo. I thank each one of the potential presenters. The abstract submissions have come from around the world, encompassing 80 different countries. It shows the academic strength of IHPBA membership and the importance to members of presenting their work in the World Congress.

The abstract review process is underway and you will be communicated shortly. The multiple options for presentations are available on oral, mini oral, talking poster and e-poster. The scientific committee has decided that almost all of you would get a chance to present your work at IHPBA World Congress 2016 at Sao Paolo.

A valid IHPBA membership is required to benefit from this discounted rate.

I request you now to

  • Plan for early registration well before December
  • If you are not a member it is a right time to become a combined member and avail the registration discount.
  • If you are a member, we strongly encourage combined membership for better discount
  • Plan your travel and visa requirements.

Prof. Chuck Vollmer and the entire scientific committee along with the management team has done an extraordinary job in putting together a truly global state-of-the-art advanced scientific program and pre Conference sessions. We will be sending you highlights of the same periodically over the coming 4 weeks.

Here is the outline of the scientific program for you to appreciate the depth and breadth of the program.

Start registering early! start planning early!

We look forward to welcoming you in Sao Paolo to a truly memorable ‘Carnival of HPB’.

Dr. Carneiro
