The 49th annual meeting of the DGPRÄC and 23rd annual meeting of the VDÄPC in Bochum was a special event this year, as the 50th anniversary of the DGPRÄC was celebrated – in the RuhrCongress, which is only a few steps away from the birthplace in the city park.

1 fully booked video symposium, 3 days annual conference, 56 sessions, approx. 400 lectures, 116 posters, 383 speakers and chairmen, top-class international speakers, a large industrial exhibition including birthday get-together, festive evening with birthday cake in the Colosseum in Essen and a diversified program – all this drew over 700 participants to Bochum.

We congratulate the DGPRÄC on its anniversary and look forward to working together for the annual conferences 2019 in Hamburg and 2020 in Frankfurt.
