On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we are warmly welcome you in Szeged to the joint meeting of the 3th Hungarian Pancreatic Study Group (HPSG) and the 9th International Symposium on Alcoholic Liver and Pancreatic Diseases and Cirrhosis (ISALPD/C)”

First of all, let me thank you for attending HPSG and ALPD. We are delighted to have participants from more than 15 countries and are looking forward to a stimulating and interesting conference. During this three days international joint meeting, we will focus on two major organs, which are commonly affected due to chronic alcohol abuse: the liver and the pancreas. Our ultimate goal was to bring together clinicians (Hepatologist and Pancreatologist) and basic scientists from all over the world to present and discuss current topics in clinical research and basic molecular mechanisms. The exchange of the major research advances both in molecular, biochemical and translational aspects may provide future directions in the treatment of alcohol-induced liver and pancreatic diseases. There will be several state-of-the-art lectures delivered by top international experts in order to expanding our knowledge of the clinical implications.

Szeged (our host city), located in the south-eastern part of Hungary, will provide a friendly environment for the meeting. The social programs (welcome reception and folkdance evening) will nicely complement the scientific sessions of the conference.

We hope that you will enjoy both HPSG and ALPD meetings!
