Dear partners and friends,
On behalf of the Portuguese Society for Simulation in Health Sciences and SESAM, we are honored to invite you to actively participate in the 22nd SESAM Annual Congress that will be held in Lisbon - Portugal, from June 15 to 17, 2016, and which I am sure will leave a lasting impression on us all.
Through a variety of inspiring keynote lectures, exciting state-of-the-art sessions and thrilling workshops, we will discuss the major breakthroughs and developments in simulation applied to healthcare, from educational and/or clinical practice to research and technology.
Simulation is developing at a rapid pace, establishing a solid foundation in biomedical education as well as in patient safety. SESAM 2016 promises to be a highlight for the multidisciplinary community that forms the heart and soul of simulation.
In addition to an excellent scientific program, there will be many opportunities for networking as well as exciting social events.
We look forward to welcoming you in Lisbon, a majestic capital, filled with beautiful architecture and cultural attractions. Recently voted as Europe's Leading Destination. Lisbon's appealing climate and profound history is amongst the most interesting of any European capital city.
The Portuguese capital is famous for its hospitality and can be considered an ideal location for an international congress. The city is easy to reach from all over the world, offers excellent conference infrastructure with highly professional services and includes an exceptional range of accommodation.
We ask you to be part of this amazing project. We are certain that you will greatly enjoy this major scientific event as well as the Portuguese culture and hospitality.
Hope to see you in Lisbon!
