22 Sep 2022 12:00 | EACD (Administrator)

The scientific committee of the 35th Annual Meeting of the European Academy of Childhood Disability (EACD) invites you to submit abstracts for a mini-symposium, instructional course, oral communication and/or poster presentation! Be aware that only abstracts following the Guidelines for Abstract Submission (see here) will be accepted.

The motto of this EACD Annual Meeting is “Smarter Goals for Better Future”, with the intent to emphasize the importance of goal setting in all processes of care in the rehabilitation of children and youth. The program in Ljubljana will be divided into five main thematic modules: (i) The importance of timely intervention; (ii) Advances in the management of orphan diseases; (iii) Management of pain in children with developmental disorders and chronic pain syndromes in otherwise normally developing children; (iv) Goal setting: active role of the child and parent in (re)habilitation process; (v) Advances in technological support of the rehabilitation process. All abstracts related to childhood-onset disabilities are welcome, and we invite authors from all fields and professions surrounding children and adults with childhood-onset disabilities to submit their topics.

On behalf of the Scientific and Organizing committee of the 35th European Academy of Childhood Disability (EACD) Annual Meeting, it is a privilege and great pleasure to welcome you to Ljubljana, from May 24th to 27th 2023. Slovenia, your host country, tells its green story. Everything is green no matter which direction you turn – towards the Alpine peaks and extensive forests, the Adriatic Sea, the mysterious Karst and nearby vineyards, and the Pannonian Plain. Ljubljana, the capital city, is a vibrant city with thousands of years of history. The European Green Capital 2016 has in a short time become a model of liveability and eco-sustainability for all medium-sized cities in Europe. Our conference venue is in the city centre, which is closed to motorised traffic.

The local Scientific and Organizing committee hopes to greet you in person. Plan your schedule to make the most of your Ljubljana visit. Build your clinical skills with scientific and educational sessions, satellite symposia, oral presentations, in-person networking opportunities, and much more! Following the outstanding line of previous EACD Annual Meetings, we will do our best in offering an excellent opportunity to share experiences, exchange scientific ideas, and foster interactions between all professionals, people with childhood-onset disabilities and their families.
