6th World PCCS Congress: 17 - 22 Feb 2013
The 6th World Congress will build on the solid scientific foundations established through previous World Congresses from Paris in 1993, through Cairns 2009. Cape Town provides the meeting place for the global coalition of doctors, nurses and health scientists who use research and technological development to provide better care for babies, children and adults with heart disease. This is the major international scientific event for our global community and an opportunity to highlight and review four years of research and technological developments in basic sciences, clinical research and therapeutic interventions. The best international faculty promises an exceptional scientific programme across the different disciplines, from interventions, procedures and operations through critical care.

There are over 1000 speakers' abstracts now online, 120 of which will be presented orally with the rest available at the abstract cafe as e-posters.
We are sure the abstracts will help you plan your personal programme. With a conference that is so jam-packed with world leaders and interesting presentations, it is inevitable that you will miss out on some sessions. the good news is that some of the sessions will be covered by our team of expert journalists and posted to our blog each day of the conference. There will also be an electronic newsletter produced each day which will also be posted to the blog.
