The Second Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress
Dear Colleagues and friends,
The AAEM, EuSEM and SEMES are happy to announce that the
Final Program and the topic assignment for all the session
has been completed. (SEE ATTACHED WORD FILE)
Attached to this message you will find a 20-page document
that includes all the speakers' assignments. You can find
the date and time for the sessions and roles you have been
assigned. You will also find the names of the other
speakers who may be sharing with you a presentation or
panel on a topic and the names of moderators and track
chairs for every session. We will email you separately the
email addresses for any co-presenter or other speakers or
chair/moderator involved in the session.
This is a very large document. We have 8 tracks, 5 days,
and 6 workshops.
To make sure you do not miss a session to which you are
assigned, use the "FIND" feature under "EDIT" once you open
the attached WORD file and "Find" by entering your last
name all the sessions where you are assigned.
Over the next two day, there will be also individual email
notifications naming each session assigned to you, the
names and email addresses of you partners sharing the
session, the team leader (Chair or moderator) and
indicating the required material we need from you
(Audiovisual, CME disclosures).
A handful of names are in red font to indicate presenters
or a matter that still needs confirmation. This will be
finalized in the next week when applicable.
At this point in time, it is essential to contact each
other, to plan you session and presentations.
Most urgent is the need for you to go to the website and to

them are already gone (we already have over 250 paid
The website provides access to other hotel information for
locations at a walking distance from the Melia (through the
small streets or the beach-walk of a lovely Mediterranean
village). It also provides info to a recommended travel
agent consolidator who can help secure great deals.
Do not wait anymore. This is the time to confirm and set-up
your travel and lodging plans.

a visa and therefore a letter of invitation. Please email

questions you have.

over 38 organizations as co-organizers or sponsors. We have
very limited space for Gala and Karaoke Dinner Social

provide an incredible program, to witness the best forms of
international exchanges, to celebrate the specialty of
