Scientific Sessions

Sessions of different formats will cover the important fields of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and interstitial lung diseases (ILDs).

Subjects will be treated with different approaches, different perspectives and different formats, depending on the focus and structure of the session.

The scientific programme has been divided into three separate information tracks:

  • Research
  • Person-Centred Care
  • Policy & Advocacy

Official Language

English will be the official language of the Summit; however, the sessions will also be translated into the host language, Polish.


The Summit is aimed at patients, patient organisations and representatives, carers, healthcare professionals, researchers, academics, medical students, early career professionals, ERN representatives, policy makers, government officials and other interested individuals.

All session rooms for the European IPF Patient Summit are located on the ground floor of the DoubleTree Hilton in Warsaw, Poland. Seating is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to safety regulations, the organisers will close the access to the session if all seats are occupied. Delegates are not permitted to stand in the aisles of the session rooms.

Oral Presentations

Computer projection facilities (for PowerPoint presentations) will be available in the meeting rooms. Presenting authors will receive all technical information and instructions prior to the Summit in order to ensure the smooth running of sessions.
