Digital Pathology & AI Congress: Europe


7th-8th Dec 2023


London, UK
The Intercontinental London Hotel-The O2

10th Digital Pathology & AI Congress: Europe


Consultant Pathologist, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Clinical Professor of Pathology, University of Leeds, Adjunct Professor of Digital Pathology, Linköping University and Director, National Pathology Imaging Co-operative.

Pathologists no longer ask if they should go digital, but how they can go digital?

It was not always like this, and the adoption of Whole Slide Imaging for clinical diagnosis has been slow. But over time, greater experience with digital pathology and the availability of more evidence for its safety has led to a near-certainty that digital pathology will transform how we diagnose disease, even before considering the potential impact of advanced artificial intelligence on our work.

The impact of digital pathology does not stop at the hospital laboratory however. Investment in digital pathology can underpin transformation in research and clinical trials, with the potential to support and grow the life sciences industry.

At the National Pathology Imaging Co-operative (NPIC), my team and I are driving a project to deliver and install digital slide scanners to serve millions of people across the UK, including the roll-out of two national networks to support specialist services. These projects will generate more than 2.4 million pathology images – 3 Petabytes of data – each year. Storing this data safely and supporting its use in research presents another unique set of challenges!

I am delighted to give the opening keynote address at the 10th Digital Pathology & AI Congress: Europe at a brand new venue. At the meeting, speakers will explore the latest advances and applications of digital pathology, the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning to diagnosis and clinical research, and how this digital revolution is transforming the laboratory. Case studies will explore the role of digital pathology in pharma and industry.

I look forward to giving an update on how the National Pathology Imaging Co-operative is deploying clinical digital pathology at a national scale and has built a platform for research and innovation.

See you in London on December 7!

Last year’s meeting at London Heathrow sold out. So we have moved to a new venue.
The nearest airport is London City. Eurostar is also a good option. There are also excellent public transport options.

2023 Speakers

2023 Agenda

For 2023 70 speakers will explore the latest advances and applications of digital pathology; how artificial intelligence and machine learning is being applied to primary diagnosis and clinical research; and how the image-based information environment is transforming the laboratory. Once again significant time is given to the role digital pathology is playing in pharma and industry with extensive case studies.

Understand how innovation and AI continue to drive advances in pathology and the ever-popular roundtable discussions provide an intimate setting for KOLs to discuss a variety of themes such as successful digital implementation strategies, toxicological pathology, and digital imaging in pharma.

This meeting has a reputation for providing an outstanding networking experience.

“For someone who attends a lot of digital pathology-associated meetings, I found that the scientific content of this meeting to be extremely high and I certainly appreciate the strong level of industry support for this meeting and the level of discussion and dialogue that’s taking place.” Keith J. Kaplan,

“Each meeting is better than the previous. The field is maturing and it shows.”

“There are going to be a lot of collaborations coming out of this meeting, which bodes well for the future of digital pathology”

“The opportunity to speak to others about their experiences implementing a digital pathology solution and the lesson learned from those experiences”

“I especially value hearing the experiences from pathology laboratories on implementation and how to overcome problems”

Event App
We have reduced waste by replacing printed documentation with an app. Make sure you have it downloaded to your devices in time for the meeting. Get Agorify on Google Play and Apple App Store.

You will have some great food choices while you are with us but now we have worked with the caterer to increase the proportion of plant-based items. We have also built a plan with the venue to avoid waste through how they serve meals and how any leftovers are processed. Our aim is that you have some great meals, whilst with us, but with less environmental impact by the time you leave.

An international meeting does involve travel but where it is practical, please consider more sustainable alternatives to flying. The app will also have a discussion space to arrange ride shares.
