Dear colleagues and friends:

We are pleased to invite you to attend the 17th International Course on Pediatric Pulmonology (ICPP 17), which will be held this year in the beautiful and historic city of Athens from October 14 to 16.

In keeping with the long-standing tradition of ICPP-The Course, this year’s edition brings together a number of distinguished speakers—all experts in their fields—who will present state-of-the-art talks providing a unique opportunity for friendly and fruitful scientific discussions among faculty and attendees.

We invite you to “go Athenian” for these three days and enjoy the miracle of Greek light, walk in the footsteps of ancient Greek doctors and philosophers, and take in the city’s famous archeological monuments and museums.

We look forward to greeting you in Athens.
