The scientific program (limited to the afternoon), will cover different aspects of cytology, with sessions covering morphology, best practice, guidelines, and new techniques.
The meeting will take place in the “Palais des Congrès”, a strategic location in Paris and one of the world‘s most significant Congress Center with a wide range of nearby hotel accommodation.
A gala evening will be held, with in beginning a comedy “l’Avare”(“ The Miser”) from Moliere, played at the Ranelagh Theater. Molière whose real name was Jean Baptiste Poquelin composed 12 of the most satirical and durable comedies of all time, including "L’Avare”, (French). It is a five-act comedy first performed in 1668, in the theatre of the Palais-Royal in Paris. The miser of the title is called Harpagon, a name adapted from the Latin harpago, meaning a hook or grappling iron. He is obsessed with the wealth he has amassed and is always ready to save expenses. You will attend a modern, unconventional version of this play performed by the “Grenier de Babouchka” troop. As the play starts, a state-of-the-art English subtitles or “surtitles” will be projected just above the stage; it's as easy as reading subtitles for a movie. A glossy printed program will serve as a souvenir! A cocktail party will then be served in the foyer and galleries of the theater.
Paris is well known for fashion, culture, food and entertainment. It benefits from a very convenient public transportation system which includes the metro and the bus, but do not hesitate to rent the Velib bikes to discover the whole city, enjoy the banks of the Seine and all the Parisian jewels. Also take time to have a drink in the many Parisian cafés. Victor Hugo said that “Respirer Paris, cela conserve l’âme”, that you can translate as “Breathing Paris preserves your soul”, and Hemingway wrote “A moveable feast”, translated in French as “Paris est une fête”. As all the Parisians who love their beautiful city, we are convinced that this meeting will not only be scientifically exciting but also that you will fall in love with Paris.
We look forward to welcoming you to Paris for this exciting and festive 50th anniversary of SFCC - email for more information
