WELCOME TO WCPCCS 2025
We would like to welcome you to Hong Kong, China, in December of 2025 to the Ninth World Congress of Paediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery. Hong Kong, the Pearl of the Orient, is an effervescent city that never sleeps. This is the place where East meets West, this is the venue where knowledge sharing and transfer take place, and this is the bridgehead where cultural exchanges are fostered. As the world is entering the era of new normal after the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Congress has found its way to return to Asia.
The Ninth World Congress in 2025 will have a scientific programme that can aptly be represented by five Is: Interdisciplinary, Interactive, Innovative, Inspiring, and Intense. Leaders in the field from all parts of the world will join efforts to develop an exciting programme that spans the full spectrum, ranging from clinical to basic subjects, common to rare conditions, disease to health, humanitarian programme to human footprint, real to unreal, and traditional core to cutting edge topics in developing and developed countries. There will be 18 tracks with defined course content, interdisciplinary mingling, interactive workshops, sparking debates, plenary sessions, pre-congress symposia, and oral and poster abstract presentations. Special topics include artificial intelligence and augmented reality, digital health and big data, innovative therapies from genes to cells, personalized paediatric cardiac care, and rare disease.
We look forward to welcoming all of you to Hong Kong, the most vibrant city in the Greater Bay Area of China!
