Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the WSPID Board and the Local Organizing Committee it is my pleasure to invite you to the 10th Congress of the World Society for Pediatric Infectious Diseases (WSPID), taking place in Shenzhen, China, December 2-5, 2017.
WSPID was founded with the purpose of bringing together members of national and regional organizations in this specialty for an international congress. The congress is unique in attracting leading experts in the field who address us on the diversity of infectious disease topics relevant to both participants coming from developing and developed countries.
As in previous years, the meeting will cover aspects of infectious diseases in regions around the world. Abstracts are still a key component of the congress and the program has been planned to allow ample time for oral and poster presentations.
We also invited you to take the opportunity and explore the beautiful Shenzhen a modern metropolis that links Hong Kong to China's mainland. While the city does not have as many historical attractions as other famous cities in China, it has created a number of excellent theme parks which entertain while teaching visitors about China and the world. Shenzhen is attracting more and more Chinese and overseas tourists for its unique beauty.
We look forward to welcoming you to Shenzhen, China.
President, World Society for the Pediatric Infectious Disease
