About the meeting
The 1st CIPP organized in Nice in 1994 at the initiative of Professors Alain Grimfeld (France) and Jean-Paul Praud (Canada QC) was an enormous success as a new platform that brought together Respiratory specialists and Pediatricians around the emerging specialty common to all concerned, Pediatric Pulmonology.
The organizers of the CIPP had achieved, for the first time, the challenging feat: that of creating a close working relationship between leading specialists in pediatric pulmonology from developed and developing countries around a number of common themes: Asthma and respiratory allergies, respiratory infections and tuberculosis, Cystic Fibrosis and sleep disorders etc...
Over the years, CIPP has acquired a reputable status among prestigious congresses in both Pulmonology and Pediatrics by focusing its attention specifically on the pediatric aspect of respiratory diseases, in keeping with the standards of large international meetings.
Twenty five years later, CIPP XVIII, held in Tokyo was a major international event where physicians treating children with chest diseases came from over 70 countries to attend this meeting.
After having to cancel the CIPPXIX due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CIPPXX was successfully turned into a virtual meeting in June 2021, gathering once again, attendees form all over the world.
We are continuing to build on this international co-operation; speakers will come from all parts of the world, ready to learn and to teach. The twin themes of the meeting will be: ‘What have I got to teach others practicing in a different environment from my own?’ and ‘What have I got to learn from others practicing in an environment different from my own?’ We will come together from the developed and the developing world to learn together for the common purpose of improving on the treatment of our young patients and thus to be better upon our return home.
The 21st CIPP has also endeavored to increase its educational activities
In addition to plenary sessions and topic symposiums, CIPP also offers:
- keynote lectures given by renowned leaders of Pediatric Pulmonology,
- Post-graduate Courses,
- interactive sessions both in conventional format and in Quiz and hands-on forms on the use of the newest and latest technology in bronchoscopy and respiratory imaging,
- interactive clinical case sessions
- satellite symposia sponsored by the Industry under the heading of a renewed partnership.
A prestigious platform offered to young investigators
The young investigator’s forum at the 21st CIPP will gain center place.
The Young Investigator Award will include 3 prizes to young investigators in Pediatric Pulmonology whose work has been selected by an international special jury.
These recipients will be offered the opportunity to present their research in a plenary session.
The remaining works submitted and selected for scientific merit, will be presented in Poster session for the duration of the congress.
The Top 5 Poster Prizes will award the five best posters selected by the same jury.
And the best poster from African countries will recieve the Max Klein’s Award and the best posters from Carribean countries will received the Patrick Robert’s Award.
This broad opening to the world and especially the support of young investigators remains the hallmark of CIPP.
