It is our great pleasure to invite you to Paris in May 2012 to take part in the 49th
congress of ERA-EDTA. The Society is planning a meeting of outstanding scientific
quality in the beautiful city of Paris.

The meeting will be held in the Palais des Congrès at Porte Maillot close to the Arc
de Triomphe which is located in the heart of the city within walking distance of most
hotels and less than 20 minutes by public transport from all points of interest.

The Scientific Committee, chaired by Jürgen Floege, is already working to ensure a
wide choice of lectures and symposia covering the most aspects of basic and clinical
Nephrology including the most recent research. CME sessions will be offered. Spe-
cial negotiated rates for hotels in all categories will be available and travel grants

The Water Lilies, one of Claude Monet’s best known paintings, was chosen as the
symbol of the ERA-EDTA Congress in Paris for several reasons which we hope you will
discover during your stay in our wonderful city -“la ville-lumière” or the city of light.
Water and the life stemming from it, are symbols that relate easily to a discipline
that was born from the effort to master salt and water balance and sought, through
dialysis, to correct the water unbalance of the diseased kidneys. The similarities with
Monet’s work are even deeper. This great impressionist painter made over 250 oil
paintings on the nympheas, in a constant search for perfection. As physicians, we may
find our affinities with the painter’s constant need to observe and describe the world.
As researchers, we may identify with the search for the perfect light, through the rep-
etition of studies of the same images, until they are seen from all the possible points of
view. There is even a simple and deeper reason that guided our choice: the nympheas
are just beautiful, and we all need beauty in our life devoted to medicine and research.
The Water Lilies will be a recurrent theme of the Social Programme which we have al-
ready started to prepare for you. There are so many things to see and to feel in Paris.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Paris in May 2012.

Scientific Programme overview
The Scientific Committee of the 49th ERA-EDTA congress looks forward to preparing
a highly attractive programme.
We will choose a disease-oriented thematic organization with eight main themes:

• Fluid and electrolytes, tubular transport

• Hereditary disorders, development, pregnancy

• Glomerular diseases and infectious diseases of the kidney

• Acute Kidney Injury and Intensive Care Nephrology

• CKD – epidemiology, prevention, progression, pathopysiology

• Hypertension, vascular disease and diabetes

• End-stage kidney disease and dialysis

• Transplantation

Within each theme, we will attempt as much as possible to integrate basic science
into the clinical context and a major focus will be on the potential of translating
research results into novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
Major elements of the programme include plenary lectures with the presentation of
cutting edge science by world leading investigators, poster sessions with no parallel
activities, symposia with integrated mini-lectures and free communications, practi-
cal courses and industry-sponsored symposia.
