How many languages there are in the world? But all of them are the same in terms of their meaning.
Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi (1207-1273 AD)
We are honored to welcome you to the first International Rumi Pediatric Conference (IRUPEC 2019) which will be held between
December 4-7, 2019 in the beautiful city of Konya, the symbolic land of Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi and the longtime capital of the Seljuk
The date of congress is preferred right before Seb-i Arus social week which characterized by events like exhibitions, workshops, concerts,
ceremonies and theaters. Thereby, our participants will find a great opportunity to listen up-to-date topics in pediatrics at many
educational seminars, academic meetings at the congress and also they will enjoy rich the social and cultural atmosphere of Konya around
this time of the year.
The Rumi Pediatric Conference does not aim to be an alternative to the many notable conferences held in the country, its objective
instead is to form an academic collaboration in the vast geographies of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. In this regard, we believe
that there is a need for such scientific activity and the week preceding Seb-i Arus will have the ideal atmosphere for this purpose.
Scientific part of IRUPEC 2019 will be performed in 3 different halls. Sessions in Hall A will only be presented in English and participants
will have an opportunity to listen distinguished international speakers, meanwhile there will be simultaneous Turkish translation. In Hall
B, scientific program will be in Turkish based sessions on up-to-date key points in clinical pediatrics. The scientific program of the
congress will also include a large number of educational and scientific events in pediatric nursing and distinguished speakers will share
their research findings, practical knowledge and experiences with us regarding best nursing care.
Our goal is to offer a scientific festival where our colleagues share their knowledge and experience as well as interact with local and
foreign colleagues in social and cultural events.
Our conference will be more significant with your valuable participation. On behalf of our organization committee and the Rumi
Pediatric Society, we would like to express our respects and gratitude and hope that our conference will be beneficial to all.
