WFPICCS 2018 - Welcome Letter

Welcome Letter

​President's letter

Welcome,  Selamat datang, 欢迎,  வரவேற்பு!

It is not often that I have the opportunity to greet you in four national languages, however the welcome to the official website for the 9th World Congress of the World Federation of Pediatric Intensive & Critical Care Societies (WFPICCS) is multi-lingual, because in 2018, WFPICCS will be in Singapore, the multi-cultural island city-state in Asia and we warmly invite you to join us in Singapore from 9 to 13 June, 2018!

It is an exciting time for WFPICCS as we continue to grow and adapt, while maintaining the long-term tradition of bringing world class global pediatric intensive & critical care education to our members, colleagues & partners around the world.

Both the local and WFPICCS' international organizing committees are working hard to develop a multi-disciplinary program that will engage all pediatric intensive & critical care health professionals.  The scientific content is focused on fostering, learning, and collaboration for the care we provide to children with critical illness and their families worldwide.  

Experts representing points of view from Asia and across the globe will lead core tracks, and in response to feedback from past registrants, we are including daily plenary sessions, expanded pre-conference workshops, and opportunities to meet and discuss specific topics with experts in the field. 

The conference facilities are airy and modern, offering free wifi and located in the central business district.

We hope that not only the scientific program and networking will entice you to Singapore but also the melting pot of cultures & races that cohabit peacefully together. Singapore's small square footage offers a multitude of surprises from a wealth of food choices, a buzzing and growing arts culture, iconic architecture, breathtaking gardens, and exciting wildlife to charming neighborhoods, inviting you to explore the diversity that is Singapore.

I encourage you to navigate through this website to find out more about the congress and WFPICCS and please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.   

Your active participation will be the basis of this congress' success, and I sincerely hope you will make use of this unique opportunity to ask questions, participate in discussions, and gain new insights and the know-how to implement these in your daily working life back home. I warmly welcome and look forward to meeting all of you in Singapore in June 2018.

WFPICCS President: Paolo Biban

Committees Chairs Letter

Dear Colleagues and Friends, 

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Singapore from June 9-13, 2018 for the 9th World Congress of the World Federation of Pediatric Intensive & Critical Care Societies (WFPICCS).

Both the local organizing and the international scientific committees are delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with WFPICCS and organise its biennial congress in Singapore - the strategic heart of Asia and the junction between China and India.

Tailored to the entire WFPICCS community of clinicians, scientists, nurses and allied health professionals, this leading pediatric intensive & critical care congress is the platform to advance professional knowledge, enhance skills, share best practices and engage with colleagues from across the globe, all striving towards a world where each child has the best chance for survival and quality of life.

WFPICCS 2018 will deliver another high quality scientific programme covering the latest developments in paediatric intensive & critical care from basic science to patient care and global health challenges.  This stimulating programme is comprised of daily plenary sessions, expanded pre-conference workshops, and opportunities to meet and discuss specific topics with experts in the field.  Don't miss this unique opportunity of having the leading pediatric intensive & critical care health professionals, meeting in Singapore from all over the world, and enriching our community's discussions.

Based on comments and feedback from participants of the 2016 WFPICCS congress, we have made some improvements to the 2018 programme including:

  • Allowing participants from developing nations to register with a Super Early Bird reduced rate, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to participate;

  • 60 oral abstract presentations;

  • Poster walks held by world experts;

  • All accepted abstracts will be published in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine.

Singapore is a thriving melting-pot of cultural diversity and its dynamism and cosmopolitan nature makes the city state a compelling destination for everyone. Join us in Singapore for five unforgettable days of debate and discussion, to meet old friends and make new acquaintances.
