Dear friends and colleagues,
We would like to invite you to the 2023 EpSSG Winter Meeting, which will be held in Barcelona from
November 29th to December 1st2023. It´s a great pleasure to welcome you all in our beautiful and
friendly city. The meeting will be a great opportunity to work on future and ongoing clinical trials and
projects, enjoy interaction with clinicians and scientists working in the field, engage with young
investigators, interact with parents and patients´ advocates, and discuss the future strategy of our
association. But also, to enjoy awonderful stay in our city.
Barcelona, the cosmopolitan capital of Catalonia in Spain, is well known for its art, architecture and
food. We hope you will be able toenjoy the city’s numerous tourist attractions and we are sure that
you will enjoy discovering local gastronomy in the city’s breadth of local and international restaurants.
Our meeting will be held in two different campus.

On November 29th , the different subcommittees
meetings will be held at the Vall d’Hebron Hospital Campus, a highly specialised comprehensive cancer
center, with national designation as reference centrefor both pediatric and adult sarcomas by the
Ministry of Health and part of ERNs PaedCan and EURACAN. It is the largest hospitalcomplex in
Catalonia and one of the largest in Spain, offering highly specialized healthcare both for children and
On November 30th and December 1st, the main meeting will take place at the Poblenou Campus of
the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF). The origin of the building was a textile factory, which began
operating in 1877 and closed in 1986. With the refurbishment of the complex, the UPF has succeeded
in reclaiming this magnificent example of Catalan industrial heritage.
We look forward to meeting you.
