It is my pleasure to invite you, members, future members, and guests to Budapest, to the 42nd Annual Meeting of the European Thyroid Association. Together with the Thyroid Section of the Hungarian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism, the Local Organizing Committee is delighted to host the ETA Annual Meeting in Hungary for the first time in its history.
The Budapest Congress Center is conveniently located in a residential area in the West half of the city, at a walking distance from several hotels and with tramline connection and ample other transportation access to the rest of the city. Pest, located on the other side of the Danube, is busier, with a vivid nightlife in the central districts.
Despite the turbulent history of Hungary’s past thousand years, major efforts have been made to conserve our heritage in Budapest and all over the country. Many buildings have been reconstructed and traditional districts, including the King’s Place (Buda Castle) and its surroundings on the Buda side of the Danube were conserved and renovated in their original arrangements. Major sites to visit include the Buda Castle District, including the National Gallery of Art, the St. Steven’s Basilica with magnificent view from the top, the House of Terror Museum dedicated to the victims of the two terror regimes of the 20th century, and the Parliament Building with the adjacent Memorial of the 1956 Kossuth Square Massacre. Beyond museums and a wide variety of arts and classical music events, Budapest represents a unique hotspot of thermal baths fed by natural hot springs. You might also be interested to taste Hungarian food specialties and wine in the ruin pub district.
Working in concert with the ETA Executive Committee we do our best to organize an unforgettable meeting. We expect an excellent scientific program; your recent research needs to be brought to and presented in Budapest.
Chair of the Local Organizing Committee
The IEEE PEMC Conference provides forum for presentation and discussion of new ideas in the field of Industrial Electronics and Motion Control. It integrates specialists both from academia and industry as expressed in the logo of the conference. The IEEE PEMC Conference series fulfill needs of researchers, mainly from PEMC countries*, and it also attract top contributions from all over the world. A special attention is devoted to evoking mutual collaboration of participants to prepare joint international research projects by organizing project oriented sessions and round table discussions during the conference. Significant support is devoted to young scientist.
In last decades, the IEEE PEMC Conference (previously named as the PEMC and EPE-PEMC Conference) has become the largest and most important conference on Industrial Electronics and Motion Control in Central and Eastern Europe. Since 2016 the conference has been sponsored by IEEE IES and IAS. As a tribute to the deceased PEMC Council chairman prof. Istvan Nagy, the “PEMC Council Award” is renamed to an “Istvan Nagy Award”.
The aim of this 18th IEEE-PEMC conference is to stimulate the findings of intelligent solutions (intelligent power electronics, intelligent control), in order to achieve the Intelligent Motion, Intelligent Mechatronics, Intelligent Sensors and Actuators, Intelligent Robots, Intelligent (more than smart) Micro Grids, Intelligent Power System, Intelligent Energy Generation, Processing, Distributing and Consuming, steadily walking to a better world.
The topics include, but are not limited to:
Scope and Objective
There are several conferences on engineering approach of robotics. The primary topics for the SYROCO 2018 will be the control aspects of robotics applications. Robot control technology is widely used for space, surgery, rehabilitation, micro machine, entertainment, underwater, civil engineering, professional and domestic services, security etc. The control will continue to play an increasing role in the areas of robotics including robot-robot and human-robot cooperation in various dynamic scenarios. Contributions on basic research as well as on relevant applications are included.
In addition, the Moving devices (mobile robots, vehicles and UAVs) which can operate in non-industrial (nonstandard) environment need to have totally new functions and behaviours. It is not enough to execute a pre-programmed action line. They must be able to adapt to changing environments, make their own decisions and in addition, they might have to socially fit into the human environment. They have to follow regulations developed originally for human beings. It means that new problems of control are emerging and have to be solved. This Symposium provides an opportunity to present and discuss research and development work in the hot area of intelligent autonomous systems from the point of view of control.
Topics of interests include, but are not limited to the followings
– Control of intelligent autonomous systems: mobile robots, vehicles and UAVs Semi-, highly- and full-automated driving,
– Control of Vehicle Groups and Fleets,
– Control of Moon and March rovers,
– Etho-Robotics (ethologically inspired robot motion and behaviour),
– Cognitive robot programming and supervising autonomous agents,
– Modelling of cognitive processes for robotics applications
– Control problems of Haptic interaction
– Control problems of Telemanipulation
– Control problems of Micro/Nano manipulation
– Control problems of Networked robots
– Robot control (adaptive, robust, learning)
– Force and compliance control
– Multi-fingered hand control
– Multi cooperative robot control
– Sensory based robot control
– Compact and efficient power for robots
– Industrial robot control applications for manufacturing

„Fertile void where surprise is possible again” – Paul Goodman
The next possibility for Gestalt practitioners, therapist, OD consultants to connect and share how the modern Gestalt therapy theory and practice evolves will be at the EAGT conference in Budapest from the 19th to the 22nd September 2019.
We would like to inspire you to come and join us and the Gestalt community.
This first announcement is like the motto itself: Staying in the state of not knowing and trusting in the flow of life. Believing that, by experiencing the emptiness of being, the creative energy flows and new understanding manifests continuously. This is the basis for the Gestalt humanistic and integrative viewpoint.
During the Conference several opportunities will be in place to explore: key note speakers, lectures, workshops and other occasions during this long weekend, to ensure that everybody can find an interest in the rich world of contemporary Gestalt practice.
The Conference is a space to explore these two phenomena: fertile void and creative indifference, and discover their aspects:
Scientific and methodological
Social and political
Existential and spiritual
The 38th Congress of the European Society of Surgical Oncology will take place from 10-12 October 2018 in Budapest Congress Center, Hungary.
Focusing on bridging the disparity between minimum standards of care across Europe, the overarching theme of the Congress is ‘Better outcome with Innovative Surgery’.
Featuring a comprehensive three day scientific programme of excellence devised by leading scientific and surgical experts, the event ensures exceptional quality and offers extraordinary educational and networking opportunities.
The Congress will focus on the leading role of surgical oncology in the management of solid tumours, in a multidisciplinary setting and as part of the multimodal approach.
ESSO 38 will offer a scientific environment and platform for the oncology and surgical oncology community, including general surgeons, surgical oncologists of different specialties, students, surgeons in training, residents, specialist nurses and all healthcare workers involved in managing cancer patients.
The latest developments and key aspects in surgical oncology will be discussed through an array of interactive sessions to highlight the significance of a multidisciplinary approach in the management of solid tumours and raise the quality level of surgical oncology care in Europe.
State-of-the-art advances in surgical research, patient management and practice, standards in surgical oncology, key guidelines, practice changing developments will all be showcased in Plenary Lectures, Meet the Expert Sessions, Debates, Scientific Symposia and Poster Sessions in well-defined tracks.
