Dear colleagues,

Proinfantis is a series of scientific conferences addressed to pediatricians, neonatologists, midwives and nurses. The previous (stationary) editions of the conference were very popular (on average over 300 participants), however the last edition (eProInfantis 2020) was organized on June 19, 2020 in the form of online conference with live streaming. Of course, the reason for the change in the form of the Conference was the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, which caused significant changes in our personal and professional life, which probably affects you every day.

eProInfantis 2020 turned out to be a great success, and the number of participants exceeded our wildest expectations. Participants who could not attend the conference on June 19 (in full or selected lectures) were given the opportunity to supplement missed lectures within 2 weeks (until July 3). Such a flexible approach combined with security (in the current epidemiological situation, participants have the opportunity to listen to lectures in safe conditions, without contact with other people), convenience (the opportunity to participate in the conference „without leaving home” from anywhere on Earth), saving time (participants do not waste time on getting to the place where the conference takes place), saving money (lower fee for participation in the conference compared to a stationary conference and no travel and accommodation costs) and access to recorded lectures caused that the interest of the participants was very large and the ratings of the event very positive.

Positive feedback from participants convinced us to go in the same direction with the second event organized by us – the NEONATUS Conference, which in previous years was organized in the standard form of a „face to face” meeting. In the current situation, we are postponing the stationary NEONATUS for the next year (if the epidemiological situation allows it) for the period of 7-8.10.2021.

However, this year we are organizing eProInfantis 2020 International – a conference with the participation of foreign lecturers and simultaneous translation with live streaming. The conference will be held on October 9, 2020. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the program below.

With kind regards and hope for a quick meeting,

Jan Mazela
e-ProInfantis 2020 International
Chairman of the Organizing Committee

Great organization, I am full of admiration how everything went smoothly.

I am in the plus of everything, I could sit at home, cook dinner and participate in lectures in the armchair !!!

I think that e-conference is a very good idea, not only during a pandemic time. Very good organization, even though it’s the first time.

Superbly prepared conference, thank you and I look forward to the autumn and the next event

Cool topics, great lecturers and great form of e-conference. The only thing missing is the sunset over the sea 😉
