Dear Colleagues, Dear Friends,
On behalf of the SSIEM 2015 Local Organising Committee and the Société Française pour l’étude des Erreurs Innées du Métabolisme (SFEIM), it is a great pleasure for me to welcome you in Lyon from September 1st to 4th. Lyon has already hosted the SSIEM meeting and I am confident that it has all the assets to renew the success it had in 1983.
The Lyon Convention Centre is located at the Cité Internationale de Lyon between the Parc de la Tête d’Or and the Rhône River; it was designed by architect Renzo Piano and was completed in 2007. The venue is close to the city centre and is very easy to reach both from the Part-Dieu Railway Station and the St Exupéry Airport.
The Scientific Committee has set up for you an attractive scientific program. The theme is “Les Confluences”: this is where Rhône and Saone rivers join but it is also when all health professionals work together and when basic research helps clinicians.
Lyon is internationally known for its gastronomy, which we will share with you during the networking events. On Thursday afternoon, you will have the opportunity to discover different aspects of the Capitale des Gaules, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1998.
I look forward to meeting each one of you.
With my warmest regards,
Christine Vianey-Saban - President of the Annual Symposium 2015
