Dear Members of ERSA, dear Colleagues,

I would like to start by saying that I am very pleased and honoured to serve ERSA as ERSA President. I will do my best to develop ERSA activities for the benefit of ERSA Community.

We are currently working on the next congress and are happy with the progress of organisation. The content of the scientific programme looks promising. It will include outstanding lectures and roundtables as well as many interesting presentations during parallel sessions. I will be very pleased to meet many of you in the beautiful island of Terceira.

Although we have already received over 900 submissions from Europe and beyond so far, we have extended the deadline to respond to many additional requests of submissions.

I wish you a good reading of all opportunities presented in this newsletter.


With best wishes,


Roberta Capello, ERSA President
