Welcome to ICC 2013!

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Welcome to Paris and the Palais des Congrès!

It is a great pleasure and honor for all the members of the French Society of Clinical Cytopathology (SFCC) to welcome colleagues from so many different countries – and sometimes from very distant countries – here in Paris for this 18th International Congress of Cytopathology. It was a great and wonderful challenge to organize it in close partnership with the International Academy of Cytology (IAC) and to benefit from its experience. Our wishes from us both, during these 4 days, is to offer you a highlighted scientific programme covering all the themes of our specialty at the highest up to date level. Everyday, from 8 am to 6 pm, many enthusiastic and very skilled cytopathologists will propose to share with you their experience and knowledge. Awards will be offered from the IAC as well as from the SFCC to senior well-known cytopathologists as well as to juniors cytopathologists in order to thank the former for the work they did and the latter for their effort in participating and joining our specialty. Thank you for having been so numerous. This congress will likely reflect the growing importance of Cytopathology in the world.

But you are at the Palais des Congrès and in Paris, the city of lights and hopefully you will put aside some time to enjoy the beauty of the city with its monuments, museums, history, nice places and cafés and we are all available to help you make the right choices!

Thank you for coming and enjoy your congress.
