Welcome Note

10th Anniversary International Conference on ‘Advances in Pneumology’

The roots of this annual conference go back to the old Polish-German cooperation concerning respiratory ailments in the coal mining areas of both countries. The conference takes place alternately in Germany and Poland. This year’s conference is hosted by the Respiratory Rehabilitation Resort, a young dynamic medical and research center known for its successes in outpatient respiratory care, of the ancient Salt Mine in Wieliczka near Cracow in Poland on October 17-18, 2014. The venue of the conference, which is partly located in the underground chambers is exceptional.

Target audience

The conference brings together a wide range of professionals who offer a unique blend of research competence and clinical experience. The conference deals with neuropathology and neuropharmacology of respiration and the mechanisms underlying pulmonary disorders. The areas of interest deal with adaptation to hypoxia, lung function, asthma, respiratory allergy and cough, pediatric respirology, smoking and smoking cessation, lung cancer, and others. The conference is addressed to pulmonologists, family doctors, general practitioners, allergologists, respiratory scientists, and psychotherapists. Every year, about 150 renowned physicians and scientists from Europe, USA, Japan, Israel, and other attend this meeting.
The Conference also is a hot-spot for the pharmaceutical companies to network with research and applied community.
