✿ Welcome ✿

Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am pleased to welcome you to the 2018 Annual Conference of the APPNIC society in collaboration with the European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR) and The European Board of Neonatology (EBN). Inspired by the success of the our previous conferences we have strived to organize the upcoming 5th International Neonatology Conference of Egypt ( INC-V) intending to update all professionals taking care of newborn infants in our country. The conference will be held in the beautiful city of Cairo from 15 to 17 March 2018.
The conference is designed to meet the needs of Neonatologists/ Pediatricians dealing with Neonate who wish to expand the understanding and increase the knowledge of Neonatal Medicine. The INC-V will again include workshops and interactive sessions that focus on practical neonatology topics thus widen the opportunity for participants to interact and have a rich discussion with our expert guests
The organizing committee welcomes young pediatricians and neonatologists as well as nurses, to participate. This conference is a great opportunity to get involved in scientific discussions.
In this spirit, we invite you to participate and make this annual meeting – once again – a successful, fruitful and stimulating experience in a friendly setting.

Dear colleagues,
The European Society for Paediatric Research (ESPR) and the European Board of Neonatology (EBN) are extremely honored to co-host the 5th International Neonatology Conference of Egypt (INC-V).
We are delighted to collaborate in this exciting and prestigious event and extremely happy to actively contribute to the scientific program. The ESPR/EBN is looking forward to contributing to making this conference a huge success. Several eminent members from our society, Prof. Mats Blennow, Prof. Pierre Gressens, Prof. Topun Austin and Dr Helmut Küster are part of a very carefully chosen international faculty of world-renowned standing.
The excellent scientific program provides a broad forum for discussing the current hot topics in the care of the high-risk neonate and will most definitely stimulate lots of interesting and fruitful discussions. Together with all of you, we are looking forward to an exciting meeting including state of the art lectures and educational workshops and an intense knowledge exchange.
The ESPR/EBN is strongly committed to support international scientific exchange and to intensify scientific and educational collaborations. In particular, the newly formed European Board of Neonatology (Chairman Prof. Maximo Vento) will actively support the involvement of members from all ESPR countries, cultures and religions. Please check our website for details on how and why to become a member. We further hope to see you again soon, for instance at the EPAS in Paris in November 2018 and at the 3rd ENS conference in Maastricht in 2019.
We greet you sincerely and wish you a very stimulating conference in Cairo!
All best wishes,
