Dear Beloved Friends and Colleagues,

We will be more than happy if you join us at the 4th European Congress for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (ECBIP) which will be organized with the cooperation of Turkish Respiratory Society and Respiratory Society of Serbia on April 27-30, 2017 in Belgrade, Serbia.

The European Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (EABIP) is very honored to welcome about 300-400 attendees from various European & Overseas countries and over 100 international invited speakers in Belgrade together with Turkish Respiratory Society and Respiratory Society of Serbia.

This will be a congress integrating and blending interventional pulmonology with pulmonology, oncology, thoracic surgery, pathology and radiology. Thus, not only the interventional pulmonologists but physicians from these other branches will find it interesting and worthwhile to attend and participate. Furthermore, in addition to the abstracts related to bronchoscopy and interventional pulmonology, abstracts related to the above-mentioned areas may also be submitted.

The EABIP Executive Board, 4th ECBIP Organizing Committee and Scientific Advisory Committee are working hard to prepare a high-quality congress that will also bring the young and senior together, give equal opportunities to both genders and blend science with friendship. Hot, cutting-edge topics and novel techniques will be discussed in symposia, panels, and “how I do it,” pro-con and interactive case sessions. Workshops will provide hands-on training in interventional pulmonology. Exhibitors will display their old and novel products.

Getting the support of leading international societies will make the 4th ECBIP stronger and more successful.  The WABIP and CHEST have already endorsed it, and the ERS and ESTS will be giving their endorsements soon.

At the end of the congress, we wish you to return back home with up-to-date and beneficial knowledge, skills and  ideas of scientific collaboration besides nice memories and friendships. “Cordial thanks, kalpten teşekkürler, hvala puno od srca” to the whole congress team for their generous efforts, contribution and support to accomplish a great congress !

Semra Bilaceroglu,
President, 4th ECBIP & EABIP
