Dear colleagues, dear PanCare friends,

It was a great pleasure for me to organize the 16th PanCare Meeting, which was held in Vienna, September 23-25, 2015. With 150 participants, the number of participants was again increased. Not only the number of participants was increased, also the quality of the presented papers!
I thank all speakers for the carefully prepared and well presented papers. A special thanks to the invited speakers for the brilliant lectures!

For the meeting in Vienna the focus was on three issues, which are closely related to each other:

  1. Transition from the pediatric to the adult health care system
  2. Realised concepts for collaborations between pediatricians and physicians in different disciplines in adult medicine
  3. Late effects during adulthood after childhood cancer

After collecting all contributions of this Meeting, we will publish a proceedings book online. The expected date of publishing will be at the end of October, 2015. All participants of the meeting will get an information when it is available on the website of the PanCare Meeting Vienna 2015, and on the official PanCare website.
