Dear Colleague, the XXXIII International Congress of the International Academy of Pathology and the 32nd Congress of the European Society of Pathology will, as in 2016, be organised as a joint venture between the BDIAP and ESP. It will be held, from 29 August to 4 September 2020, in the Scottish Events Campus, in Glasgow, Scotland. Glasgow is Scotland’s Scotland’s largest city and is located on both sides of the River Clyde. The University of Glasgow is one of Europe’s oldest, established in 1451, and largest universities. Glasgow is a major cultural centre for Scotland and was the European City of Culture in 1990.

On behalf of the International Academy of Pathology and the European Society of Pathology we would like to invite you to join us in Glasgow for an exciting and stimulating congress that will reflect recent developments in diagnostic and molecular pathology.

The motto of the Congress – Glasgow 2020: A Vision for the Future – will reinforce the future role of pathology as a strong partner for the different clinical specialties. The scientific programme will include science, translational research and clinical application to provide delegates with information on recent research findings, new technologies and up to date education.

In addition to providing an interesting scientific and educational programme the IAP/ESP 2020 meeting will serve as a get-together for pathologists and scientists from all over the world in a friendly atmosphere. The delegates are kindly invited to see all the various bars and restaurants serving the local uisge beath (whiskey)

We are looking forward to welcoming you and spending a great time in Glasgow.
