Welcome to the 48th Nordic Lung Congress
On behalf of the organizing committee, it is a pleasure to welcome you to NLC2017 in Visby 10-12 May 2017!
The congress is organized by the Swedish Respiratory Society together with Nordic Primary Care Respiratory Group, Swedish Respiratory Nurses and Physiotherapists, Visby Hospital and Uppsala University.
The scientific programme will feature the very best of speakers from the five Nordic countries and cover a wide range within the respiratory field including obstructive lung diseases, pulmonary oncology, sleep-related breathing disorders, interstitial lung diseases, cystic fibrosis and lung transplantation. In addition to parallel symposia, ongoing research from the Nordic countries will be presented as posters and oral presentations. All lung physicians from the five Nordic countries are invited and also general practitioners, nurses and physiotherapists working within the field of respiratory medicine.
A novelty at this 48th Nordic Lung Congress is that it starts with education during the Wednesday with parallel courses followed by the Congress during full Thursday and Friday.
A get-together meeting will be organized in a medieval building during Wednesday evening.
We are pleased to announce that for this Congress we have secured the venue Wisby Strand at the seaside in the very heart of the medieval city Visby on Gotland. At the entrance, there is a beautiful view of the city wall and the park Almedalen where the political week is arranged every summer. There are a lot of hotels in the surroundings and the airport is reached within less than 15 minutes by car while the harbor is within a 5 minute walk.
