On behalf of the Greek Society of Clinical Chemistry - Clinical Biochemistry (GSCC-CB) and the Congress Organizing Committee, I would like to invite you to the 22 nd IFCC-EFLM European Congress of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine “EuroMedLab Athens 2017” which will take place in Athens, Greece, on June 11-15 2017 at Megaron - the Athens Congress Center. This congress will be co-organized along with the 25 th Balkan Clinical Laboratory Federation (BCLF) meeting and the 15 th National Congress of GSCC-CB, helping in a fruitful exchange of opinions and visions among the Greek, the European and the International colleagues.
The scientific program, containing an interesting combination of presentations, symposia, discussions, open sessions and workshops, describing the state of the art and the recent innovations in Laboratory Medicine in the 21 st century, will be carefully finalized in collaboration with the European Societies though the International Scientific Advisory Board. During EuromedLab Athens 2017 a large, interesting and detailed exhibition of IVD industry products as well as many Industry Sponsored Workshops will be organized. In Athens several thousand square meters will be allocated to offer space in order that the latest innovations in the field of clinical chemistry, molecular diagnostics, cell counting, immunochemistry, and several other will be exhibited.
Athens, a city famous all over the world for its history and culture, has many places of interest within a relatively small area surrounding the city center (Syntagma Square) in walking distance from the congress venue. The downtown Congress Center is also conveniently situated nearby to the districts of Plaka and Monastiraki (old town) as well as Kolonaki (shopping and museums area and night life district). Acropolis, the New Museum and charming historic quarters with restored 19 th century neoclassical homes, picturesque pedestrian streets, shops and restaurants, and ancient monuments from classic and Roman era will offer you unforgettable memories to take home.
