Welcome Letter

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of FISPGHAN and ESPGHAN we are delighted to invite you to the 6th World Congress of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark from 3 – 6 June 2020. This collaboration, which only takes place every four years, brings together field experts from around the globe to promote worldwide cooperation and education in the fields of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. Following the previous successes in Boston (2000), Paris (2004), Iguazu Falls (2008), Taipei (2012) and Montréal (2016) we are happy to return to Europe and hope to see you in Copenhagen!

The scientific programme will include a diverse set of fascinating speakers presenting cutting-edge lectures and educational sessions to make the 6th World Congress a must attend event for enthusiasts in the world of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition.

A wide range of sessions, symposia, clinical tracks, post-graduate courses and the hands-on endoscopy learning zone will all be on offer. Latest developments on clinical guidelines will be shared and state-of-the-art lectures in pediatric GI, hepatology and nutrition will be presented. There will also be opportunities to share field research interests, present original works, network, see old friends and meet new colleagues.

One of Europe’s oldest cities, Copenhagen is an exceptional destination with beautiful canals and waterfront, narrow streets and warm-natured locals who have plenty of ‘Hygge’ (cosiness) to share. The Danish capital has been named the ‘World’s most liveable city’ repeatedly, and Danes have been ranked the ‘World’s Happiest People’ year after year. This is partly due to a favourable work-life-balance, high levels of tolerance and a peaceful democracy. The city is also a main hub in northern Europe with flight connections to almost 200 destinations across four continents.

We look forward to seeing you in Copenhagen and trust you will find your participation at the 6th World Congress fruitful and enjoyable.
