WELCOME NOTE

The XVI World Meeting of the UIP (Union Internationale de Phlébologie) will be organized on behalf of the French and German Phlebology Societies and will welcome all Phlebology Associations of the world for the UIP’s 50th anniversary.

We are hoping to attract between 1500 and 2000 delegates to this ambitious scientific programme which will be held within the surroundings of splendid accommodation.
Organized in the world-acclaimed «Grimaldi Forum» Congress Center, the UIP50 will benefit from the most up-to-date equipment. Mornings will be dedicated to non-concurrent sessions of selected papers, lectures and consensus reports, while afternoons will have concurrent abstract sessions and symposia.

Free papers will be accepted under 3 formats: abstract (8 mn. + 2 mn. discussion), short abstract (3 mn., 3 slides (plus title), posters (3 mn. discussion).

In addition to these features, early breakfast sessions and lunch symposia will also offer plenty of opportunities for small groups to gather, learn and practice. The UIP50 meeting and its venue could also be the place for corporate incentive meetings.

Leisure activities in the Principality of Monaco are a must and there is no doubt that among the magnificent beaches, swimming pools, spas, casinos, museums and restaurants, nobody will wish to remain too long in their luxury hotels’ cosy rooms.

The social programme will offer many delights including a Gala dinner in the world famous «Salle des Etoiles». We hope to see you in Monaco for what we expect to be the best Phlebology meeting ever…
