Date:9/28/2009

More than 70 internationally renowned speakers from paediatric centres of excellence in 20 countries have already confirmed their participation in the programme, which will cover cutting-edge topics on everything from autism, asthma and allergies to child abuse, genetic profiling and passive smoking.

These include experts from the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Harvard Medical School, the Cochrane Child Health Field and European Paediatric Association.

"Child health is an exciting and fast-moving area of clinical expertise" says Professor Stuart Logan, Editor of Child: Care, Health and Development, which will publish the conference abstracts early next year. "The scientific committee, drawn from the editors of Wiley-Blackwell's paediatric journals and books, is delighted by the quality and breadth of speakers it has managed to attract."

The four-day event, at the Firenze Fiera conference centre in Florence, is aimed at general and specialist paediatricians, general practitioners and family doctors and allied health professionals.

Researchers from the field of paediatrics have until 9 October to submit abstracts, with the best 12 receiving the Excellence in Paediatrics Award, which will entitle them to present their paper in three special sessions and attend the 2010 conference in London free of charge.

Preferential delegate rates are also being offered for early booking, with discounts for those who register before 5 October.
