Welcome Letter

IPSSW2016 – Innovation, Engineering and Exploration

Dear IPSS Members, Colleagues and Friends,

The International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS) and the IPSSW2016 Organizing Committee are pleased to announce the 8th International Pediatric Simulation Symposia and Workshops (IPSSW) in Glasgow, UK, from the 9-11 May 2016.

Building on a great meeting in Vancouver in 2015, IPSSW is looking forward to its first journey to the United Kingdom in the vibrant and wonderful city of Glasgow. The conference will be held at the Hilton Hotel in the city center and within easy reach of all the wonderful dining and cultural activities that Glasgow has to offer.

“IPSSW2016 – Innovation, Engineering and Exploration” bridges the gap between the technology and science and the human side to pediatric simulation. Firstly, Innovation in terms of the growth of new ideas and concepts and how they can be applied to simulation will be explored. Secondly, Engineering as applied to new technologies and resources for pediatric simulation will be discussed. Finally, the Explorative journey to marry the technology and innovation for our simulation community will be discussed. We aim to bring these themes together in an exciting and stimulating program. In response to feedback from previous meetings, we are pleased to have included speakers from a range of industries with important insights applicable to our practice. The format of the academic program has been refined to facilitate smooth flow between sessions with adequate time devoted to those aspects that you’ve identified as key and will include workshops and breakout sessions.

IPSSW continues to represent the world’s largest gathering devoted exclusively to pediatric and perinatal simulation – popular for advancing its practice and network in a friendly and collegial atmosphere. A diverse group of individuals attend with a shared interest in improving pediatric healthcare through simulation.

We are very excited to be inviting you to Scotland, to IPSSW2016 in Glasgow and we very much hope to see you there!

Warm regards,

Richard and Ralph
