4th Digital Pathology Congress


The implementation of digital pathology solutions is continuing in the NHS, but the technology and creation of best practice is advancing all the time.

In a period when funding is constrained and investment is made on a ‘spend-to-save business’ basis, digital pathology is an area still being expanded by the NHS. But which system and what are the pitfalls? What lessons have already been learned and how do you make the most of the changes happening to pathology in the NHS?

These are the questions answered by this established meeting. Although the conference draws on experiences from across the world, a major focus of the meeting is you, as an NHS pathologist. For example, an extended panel discussion on the Widescale Adoption of Digital Pathology within the National Health Service will cover:

  • National strategy
  • Making a business case
  • Data sharing challenges, interoperability & security
  • Adoption of technology

In fact we are so confident that the congress will help everyone working in pathology for the NHS that there is a money back guarantee.

On top of the main conference sessions, if your questions are technology focused, three free pre-conference workshops run by Indica Labs, Definiens and 3D Histech will let you get hands on with the technology.

These are not certain times for NHS funding. To ensure your participation, we offer a 50% NHS discount and because the meeting is just outside central London, hotel costs are reduced and attendance prices are frozen for the 4th year in a row.

Do not miss the opportunity to take home cutting edge strategies, analysis techniques, case study examples and methods to allow you to fully understand both the technology and accompanying informatics and image analysis tools

Poster Presentations

Poster presentation sessions will take place in breaks and alongside the other breakout sessions of the conference. Your presentation will be displayed in a dedicated area, with the other accepted posters from industry and academic presenters.

We also issue a poster eBook to all attendees with your full abstract in and can share your poster as a PDF after the meeting if you desire (optional).

Whether looking for funding, employment opportunities or simply wanting to share your work with a like-minded and focused group, these are an excellent way to join the heart of this congress.

In order to present a poster at the forum you need to be registered as a delegate. Please note that there is limited space available and poster space is assigned on a first come first served basis (subject to checks and successful registration).

We charge an admin fee of £100 to industry delegates to present, that goes towards the shared cost of providing the poster presentation area and display boards, guides etc.  This fee is waived for those representing academic institutions, hospitals and not for profit organisations.

Submission instructions

We will require the form (downloadable below) to be submitted by the 10th of November. This is the formal deadline however space is another limiting factor so early application is recommended.  Therefore please contact us with any questions you have as soon as possible.

Exciting panel

The panel was really exciting and very well attended. I found the scientific content of this meeting to be extremely high and I certainly appreciate the strong level of industry support and the level of discussion and dialogues that has taken place at this meeting. One of the best of the year, certainly.

Best Content

I’m fortunate to attend a lot of pathology meetings and a lot of digital pathology meetings. This meeting has the best content and the best speakers, probably one of the best informative meetings of the year with very, very strong and growing industry support thanks to all of you. They squeezed in a lot in 2 days but I think the meeting really works.
