ESCoP is pleased to announce that the 20th Conference of the Society will take place in the city of Potsdam, Germany, near Berlin from Sunday 3rd -  Wednesday 6th September 2017. The conference of ESCoP is organized bi-annually since 1985 and includes keynote lectures, symposia, oral, and poster presentations.
