The scientific programme for the 2nd BEAT-PCD Conference and Training School / 3rd PCD Training School is being planned and promises a wealth of excellent presentations and workshops. The meeting will be held in Valencia, Spain; 18th – 21st April 2017.  

The opportunity to hold the Conference and Training School alongside each other should lead to an exciting meeting. Some workshops and talks will be shared and others will be aimed primarily at either Early Career or Senior Researchers / Clinicians. In addition to plenary talks, a substantial amount of time has been reserved for oral presentations by young and senior members of BEAT-PCD; these talks will be selected from the submitted abstracts. A preliminary programme with plenary talks, workshops, expert consensus groups and STSM talks will be circulated in the New Year. The Conference programme will be finalised upon the selection of the oral presentations. You are therefore invited to submit your abstract, register for the meeting and book your hotel room ASAP!

Abstracts: Abstracts for oral and poster presentations are limited to 300 words (excluding affiliations), and should fit on one page. Abstracts will be published in the Open Access report of the Conference/ TS Proceedings. Please indicate whether you prefer an oral or poster presentation. Send your abstract submission directly to Ana Reula (ana.reula@uv.es ) by 28th February.  The TS committee will select submissions for posters or oral presentations by 14th March.

Best presentations and posters will be awarded prizes at the meeting.

Presentations from project groups: if you have a BEAT-PCD project which has started or is in the planning stages, we would love you to give a short presentation. Please send a brief outline and nominate a presenter to Bruna Rubbo B.Rubbo@soton.ac.uk

Training school

COST BEAT-PCD Training School/ 2nd Young Researchers' Meeting in Paris

Training School for early stage researchers in Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia, delivering intensive training on new and emerging aspects of research, diagnosis and management.

Location: Hôpital Armand Trousseau, 26 avenue du Docteur Arnold Netter, Paris 12ème

Registration is now closed.

To download the programme and for information on the training school location click here .



We would like to invite all young researchers in the field of PCD to attend the first of four Training Schools established through the COST programme BEAT-PCD. The Training School mission is to deliver teaching and intensive training and practical skills on novel and emerging aspects of basic and clinical science relevant to BEAT-PCD’s objectives. Through a combination of lectures and workshops we aim to deliver familiarisation and expose young researchers to expertise through an interactive approach, building on the programme developed at the Young Researchers Meeting in Bern last year. This second meeting will bring together experts in the field to lead the programme alongside emerging young researchers gaining experience by chairing and organising sessions and workshops relevant to their areas of interest. Working together this growing group of International researchers aim to be uniquely positioned to drive forward collaboration in translational research in PCD.

A limited number of Trainees participating in the Training School are entitled to reimbursement to subsidize travel, accommodation and meal costs. Trainees requiring reimbursement should indicate this on their application which will be assessed according to the COST criteria.

* The conference dinner will take place at Thursday evening, the fee will be supported by the organization so the registration is mandatory. 

* The scientific meeting will be followed by 1 day at Disneyland Paris (for the ones that would like to join). The expenses would be covered by the participants themselves. Please confirm your participation.
