United Kingdom, United Kingdom
ollowing the success of their 2014 meeting
, which attracted over 260 delegates and 25 exhibitors
is pleased to announce
Digital Pathology Congress 
which will be h
eld on December 3
4 2015
at the London Heathrow Marriott Hotel
, UK.  The conference is part 
of  their  successful 
Personalised  Medicine 
series  which  includes  events  on  precision  medicine, 
digital  health,  s
c  biology,  the  human 
microbiome, biologics 
digital PCR.
The meeting is also the sister meeting to the US and Asian Digital Pathology meetings taking place in 
June and September 2015 respectively. 
The continuing growth and advances in digital pathology solutions is transforming the industry.  Wi
th wide ranging applications and benefits 
including  reduction  in  lab  costs,  increased  workflow  efficiency,  greater  interconnectivity,  effective  training  /  education  me
thods,  improved 
decision making is enabling enhanced patient care.  The result is that Di
gital Pathology is rapidly gaining momentum worldwide.  
industry & academic experts 
in 2015, 
working in all areas of Pathology this two day interactive meeting will provide the 
opportunity to take home cutting edge strategies, analysi
s techniques, case study examples and methods to allow you to fully understand both 
the technology and accompanying informatics and image analysis tools and utilize digital pathology to its greatest potential.
This will be achieved th
rough a vibrant exhib
ition room, 
full of technology providers showcasing their technologies and other solutions, networking 
breaks allowing interaction with your peers, poster presentation sessions, expert led case study presentations and incisiv
e Q&A panel discussions 
separate tracks which will examine the topics below.
There  is  also  a  complimentary  workshop  taking  place  on  December  2
between  12 
5pm  which  is  being  organised  by  Hamamatsu 
.  More information about the workshop can be found at the end o
f the agenda but it 
will give you the opportunity to hear about the 
current and future direction of digital pathology from Hamamatsu Photonics.  The purpose of the workshop will be to provide 
both training 
Hamamatsu and 
case studies from current users
from across Europe regarding their 
positive experiences but also about o
vercoming challenges 
of whole slide imaging. There will also be an opportunity to have hands on experience with both Hamamatsu hardware and softwa
