Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the Swiss Society of Pathology, it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 88th Annual Meeting of the Society to be held in Lausanne from Thursday, November 9th, through Saturday, November 11th, 2023.
The scientific program has been developed around the theme "Pathology - Science in Motion" to highlight the dynamic changes taking place in our specialty that impact on diagnostic practice, as well as the rapid increase in data generation and knowledge enabled by novel technologies that advance analytical resolution and dimensionality. The session on Quantitative and Functional Pathology, organized in conjunction with the Swiss Digital Pathology Consortium, will focus on new emerging standards and modalities that link morphology and tissue analysis to molecular medicine.
The postgraduate course "Neuropathology for Surgical Pathologists and Clinicians" will precede the main meeting on Thursday morning as usual, and will rely on casebased presentations by experts to cover the main categories of brain, muscle and peripheral nerve disorders. We are convinced that this course, designed for residents and fellows, will also be of interest to experienced pathologists.
A variety of topics have been chosen for the main plenary sessions of the congress to span the different facets of pathology, including lung, gastrointestinal and hepatic diseases, immunopathology and pediatric pathology, embracing a range of neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders. A distinguished panel of national and international experts has been invited to present their research, share their experience and provide practical guidance. Hematopathology is given special recognition due to recent updates in the classifications of neoplastic entities and will be the focus of a session and slide seminar on Saturday, November 11th.
The meeting will take place at the Beaulieu Convention Center, which is ideally located in the center of the Olympic capital, with a spectacular view over the Lac Léman and the Alps. Lausanne is a very attractive venue and we hope that participation in the meeting will provide you with an opportunity for an enjoyable stay in the Lemanic region. Lausanne is a historical city with museums, cultural attractions, but it also offers lively nights, shopping and renowned gastronomy. This time of the year, the terraced vineyards of Lavaux, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offer a spectacular panorama not to be missed.
We look forward to meeting you all in Lausanne and to spending quality time together.
