Amsterdam: international capital of respiratory medicine and research

It isanhonour to be able to welcome for the first time an ERS Annual Congress to Amsterdam, a city renowned for its cultural diversity, world-class museums and one of the world’s great orchestras. And, after a full day of Congress sessions, there is nothing better than a stroll along one of the city’s many beautiful tree-lined canals.
You will find the RAI Congress centre spacious and easily accessible, just a few tram stops from the city centre – or, in the best Dutch way, a short bicycle ride. All the exciting features and services you have come to expect from the world’s most successful respiratory events will be again in evidence – and more.
Our thanks go to the Amsterdam Programme Committee for developing a scientific programme at once comprehensive and rewarding, matching the latest in respiratory research and clinical practice with discussion and debate at the various symposia and grand rounds focusing on issues of concern both to the respiratory professional and a wider public.
We are also proud to welcome the inaugural HERMES European examination in paediatric medicine on the Congress opening day. As many of you are aware, the decision in May 2010 by the Netherlands to use HERMES as a means of implementing an in-training assessment programme for adult respiratory medicine trainees places it in the vanguard of European harmonisation.
The ERS Annual Congress is the once-a-year occasion when the world’s respiratory experts and professionals converge on a European city to meet, exchange views and share knowledge. We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam, September 2011, capital of the Netherlands and, for five days, international capital of respiratory medicine and research.

Science andthe city: the perfect match!
