Welcome to EACD 2013 at The Sage Gateshead

The 25th European Academy of Childhood Disability three day conference will be hosted at The Sage in Newcastle-Gateshead from 10th-12th October 2013.

The theme of the conference is From Basic Research to Policy. There will be an exciting mix of presentations including lectures from keynote speakers, invited oral presentations, submitted oral presentations, posters and debates on hot topics in research and practice.

There are seven pre-conference symposia on Wednesday 9th October. The main conference will start at 10.00 am on Thursday 10th October with six free instructional courses across three parallel sessions in which  delegates can discuss issues in depth. We hope that this stimulates debate from the outset of the conference. We encourage you to arrive on Wednesday so that you can join the courses after a relaxed breakfast. Registration will open at 8.00 am.

Exhibitions of new technologies and interventions will take place on the first two days of the conference.

The conference carries 15 CPD credits approved by Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health.
