On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite your to Bern the 18th EMCHD, to be held in August 2021.
The city of Bern is the capital of Switzerland and, including the surrounding urban area, has approximately 400.000 inhabitants. The University of Bern, together with its University Hospital, is located right in the middle of the city. While growing fast during the last two decades, the University took over several old factories like the former Toblerone chocolate factory or the old steel foundry of vonRoll. The latter is the location we propose for our meeting. We will have everything available at one place and can also have the teaching day and satellite symposia at the same location.
It is certainly worth to explore the town after the teaching day and in the evenings. The city itself and the surroundings of Bern offer plenty of forests and gardens, a zoo at the river Aare, as well as art museums and sport facilities.
The meeting will provide the complement community with a great opportunity to share and discuss their clinical as well as laboratory results with colleagues and hear about new findings within our fields. This will be complemented by a teaching day in a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere in the heart of Switzerland.
I am convinced that the meeting, Bern by itself and the convenient venue on the vonRoll campus of the University of Bern, will meet the demands of a successful Complement Meeting with special focus on human disease and diagnostics, combined with a high quality professional organization, proximity, good cooperation and friendship.
On behalf of my friends and colleagues in the organizing committee, I am looking forward to hosting you in Bern in summer 2021!
Professor, University of Bern
