Dear Colleagues


On behalf of the EMWA Executive Committee, we have the great pleasure of inviting you to attend the 45th EMWA Conference from 2 to 4 November 2017, in beautiful Cascais, on the Atlantic coast of Portugal.

The EMWA Professional Development Committee have prepared a comprehensive education programme, with 19 foundation and 7 advanced workshops that will cover a broad range of topics related to medical writing and communication.

In addition to the workshops, the conference offers a number of events outside of the formal education programme, such as the traditional Opening Session and Welcome Lecture, the Networking Reception, as well as a free seminar entitled ‘Introduction to Medical Writing’.

Each conference day will start with an ‘Easy Morning Yoga’ session and on Friday evening we have planned a number of social events so that you can enjoy Cascais together with old and new EMWA friends.

We would like to thank our Head Office and team of committee members, workshop leaders and all volunteers who have been working for many months to bring you this conference.

We wish you all an interesting and enjoyable conference.
