Isidro B. Salusky, MD
IPNA Secretary General
Along with Congress President Hong Xu and Scientific Program Chair Franz Schaefer, I look forward to seeing the IPNA membership at the 16th Tri-Annual IPNA Congress, to be held from August 30 to September 3, 2013, in Shanghai, China. The meeting will take place in the Shanghai International Convention Center, a perfect venue with conference rooms seating up to 2,000 attendees. There will be 8 state-of-the-art and keynote lectures, 40 scientific symposia, and 12 CME sessions. A total of 160 abstracts will be selected for oral or oral-poster presentations. Awards will be given for the best oral and poster presentations. There will be reduced registration fees and up to 100 travel grants for junior attendees. As currently projected, 16th IPNA Congress registration fees will be $500US for IPNA members, and $200US for trainees/fellows.
The Congress will be complemented by half- and full-day satellite workshops devoted to CKD, dialysis, hypertension, pathology, patient education, charity activities, and rare inherited kidney diseases, including Alport syndrome, cystinosis, and oxalosis.
