Whether you are involved in Basic Science or Clinical Practice, the Cannes meeting covers your topics of interest.

Find out what the highlights of the meeting will certainly be for you whether you are an intensivist, a gastroenterologist, a digestive surgeon, an internist, a pediatrician, a pharmacist, a young investigator, a dietician, a nurse, an endocrinologist or a gerontologist.

As there are seven special species of crops growing in the land of Israel, so there are seven special reasons for participating in this meeting:

Education sessions will teach you among many other topics of nutrition throughout the female life cycle, guidelines for TPN in children, palliative care, and how to use data for health policy. We will also have state- of- the- art sessions on topics such as nutrition and the kidney, and metabolic efficiency.
Scientific Themes will discuss insulin resistance in exercise, critical illness and obesity, wasting in chronic diseases, nutrition and the brain, the bone, or the microflora, the gene-nutrient interaction and the effects of the Mediterranean diet, and antioxidants.
Poster sessions will encourage discussion and interaction between specialties and give opportunities to young scientists to show the results of their research.
Evenings walking on the Croisette of Cannes, and dining in the old port in front of the sea shore will leave you with unforgettable memories.
We hope to share Nutrition History in Europe and experiences during the past 25 years of the ESPEN congresses between young and mature scientists, to taste the special, pleasant ESPEN international atmosphere.
The Palais des Festivals et des Congrès is the premier location for such a happening and a huge bar-b-cue on the beach has been prepared for you. Occurring during the regatta season in the place of films and festivals, this silver ESPEN anniversary will celebrate the best of 25 years of research and achievement in nutrition from the most active teams all over the world. You will not want to miss this occasion.

Please join us for this event on September 20-23, 2003 in Cannes.
Looking forward to seeing you all

ZVI GIMMON Chairman, Scientific Committee
ELLIOT BERRY Chairman, Educational and Clinical Practice Committee
