The 17th European Congress on Extracorporeal Circulation Technology will be held in France in the city Marseille, from June 14th to 17th, 2017. On behalf of the Executive Board and the committee members of the Foundation European Congress on Extracorporeal Circulation Technology (FECECT), it is my honor and pleasure to invite you to be a participant in this congress.
The FECECT congress will be a dynamic forum in which perfusionists, health care providers, clinical researchers and scientists working in the field of extracorporeal circulation technologies can meet each other. Participants will have the opportunity to share their clinical experiences as well as research and development in the field of extracorporeal circulation technologies with colleagues from Europe, but also from countries beyond the European borders. FECECT offers to all the opportunity to share scientific information and the latest advances in the field, as well as continuing education. Please click here if you like to submit your abstract.
FECECT intends to be interdisciplinary and we hope that the information gained during sharing your experience with different specialists will broaden your knowledge with regards on new medical devices and different protocols of the mentioned technologies and related areas. Your active participation in the discussions and social events during the congress will be important in addition to make our congress as successful as possible.
Marseille is located on France’s south coast and is the second largest city in France. Marseille is a major French center for trade and industry, with excellent transportation infrastructure (roads, sea port and airport). Marseille was historically the most important trade center in the region and functioned as the main trade port of the French Empire. Humans have inhabited Marseille and its environs for almost 30,000 years. Marseille has a Mediterranean climate with warm to hot, mostly dry summers.
During the congress there will be interesting possibilities for accompanying persons, to take discovery tours in the city and the region to make also their stay very enjoyable.
I hope many delegates from all over the world will come to Marseille to participate in the 17th European Congress on Extracorporeal Circulation Technology.
On behalf of FECECT I hope you, as participant and your accompanying persons will enjoy the participation in our congress and your stay in the south of France.
