Dear colleagues and friends,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate at the 10th East European and Mediterranean Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (EEMCPDM) conference on 13.-15. June 2024 in Tallinn, Estonia.

The EEMCPDM conference is an international multidisciplinary meeting bringing together professionals taking care of patients with cerebral palsy and other childhood-onset disabilities. Our aim is to discuss approved treatment methods, as well as new treatment possibilities and their implications. The official Congress language is English.
The main topics of the congress are:

  • Body posture and stability
  • Neuromuscular diseases
  • Myelomeningocele
  • Transition
  • Rehabilitation
  • Orthotics, Robotics
  • Spasticity reduction
  • Hip surveillance
  • Social aspects

This meeting’s motto is “Row gently, arrive eventually”, a translation of an Estonian proverb, saying that we Estonians are famous for our patience and tolerance with different people and opinions. It seems to be a good fit for EEMCPDM which was founded for exchanging and discussing information and ideas concerning new developments in our field across nations and disciplines, families and caregivers with all the tolerance and patience that these issues deserve.

You can find conference program, information about speakers and organizers, venue and conference registration at event website
The abstract submission is open and the deadline for submission is 01.03.2024.

The main venue of EEMPCPDM 2024 conference is Sokos Hotel Viru. This time we gather in Tallinn – one of the best preserved medieval old towns in Europe (UNESCO World Heritage Site), as well as exemplary architecture from different periods. Often named as the Silicon Valley of Europe, Tallinn is a unique combination of a smart city, with its hundreds of start-ups and technological centres and Estonian culture, which can be seen everywhere in the form of cuisine, handicraft and music.

To broaden the visibility of EEMCPDM and to enhance the opportunity for interested people from your area to join the meeting it would be a great help for us if you could distribute the conference link to your local orthopedic, neurologic, physiotherapeutic, and rehabilitation societies.

We look forward to welcome you in Tallinn!

Yours sincerely,
