PCCS2009 e-News #1

“Beyond the Barrier” is the theme for the 5th World Congresses of Paediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery (WCPCCS) to be held in Cairns, in far North Queensland, Australia from June 21 to June 26, 2009.....

In a real sense we have already gone beyond the barriers by joining together these two streams of practice. Initially the cardiologists and the surgeons held separate conferences before coming together for the inaugural joint congress in Paris in 1993.

During the intervening 15 years the numbers of delegates attending our congresses has grown from 1500 in Paris to 3000 in Buenos Aires in 2004. At the Cairns meeting, which is being organised by a combined group of Paediatric Cardiologists and Cardiac Surgeons from all the Australian and New Zealand centres we are aiming for +2,500 delegates.

The chosen theme invites our presenters and Landmark Lecturers to take us beyond the barriers of our imagination with the latest in techniques and equipment.

On behalf of all our Australian and New Zealand colleagues we urge you to make the commitment to join us in this great adventure.

In these e.Newsletters we will give you a taste of what is on offer in this great southern land from fine dining to trekking in the outback, snorkeling on the world heritage listed Great Barrier reef or visiting one of our wonderful landmarks such as Uluru in central Australia, the world renowned Kakadu National Park and the Sydney Harbor Bridge and Opera House.

Bring yourself, bring the family but most importantly come prepared to go Beyond the Barrier and share in the knowledge of the future.
