Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I extend a cordial invitation on behalf of the IPTA Council to actively engage in the 13th Congress of IPTA, set to convene in Berlin in September 2025.

Under the leadership of Pryia Verghese, the IPTA SAC is crafting an exciting program that promises to be more dynamic and interactive than ever before. We eagerly welcome your participation and input, aiming to incorporate your ideas into the fabric of our event. Your abstract submissions are particularly valued, as they will contribute to the collective knowledge shared amongst IPTA members.

Our dedicated planning team, comprised of Isabel Stengler, Catherine Parker, and Katie Tait, is diligently orchestrating a memorable experience for you in Berlin. We have meticulously selected a venue ideally suited for the IPTA Congress, located in close proximity to Berlin's iconic landmarks, and have secured a charming brewery for the IPTA party, promising an authentic local experience.

While attending the congress, I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to explore Berlin, a city steeped in history and undergoing significant transformation. With its wealth of attractions, extending your stay in Germany may prove to be a rewarding endeavor.

I extend heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors, exhibitors, collaborating societies, and the various Children's Hospitals for their generous support thus far. We look forward to welcoming additional partners as we strive to make this congress a resounding success.

We eagerly anticipate your presence in Berlin, where we will converge to exchange knowledge, forge new connections, and advance our shared mission.
Warm regards,

Lars Pape
