Social Program

  • Opening ceremony and welcome reception

  • Music performance for the 52nd Annual Scientific Meeting

    "Music is said to be a speech of angels", and the soothing sounds of the harp are certainly capable of transporting the listener to an elevated state of consciousness.
    You will listen to a performance of six harps, with the harpist Anja Gaberc and her students from the Conservatory of Music and Ballet from Ljubljana.
    Music written by a Slovenian composer and pianist Marjan Peternel, among others composers of different music styles, from Baroque to Impressionism.

  • Fun Run

  • Dear colleagues!

    Running is one of the most basic and natural forms of human movement. Running is the gift that always gives back. It teaches us to live the moment. It is a universal language, which has the power to heal. It reminds us to breathe and connects us to amazing people. For those and many more reasons we have decided to organize a night Fun Run during the 52nd ESPN meeting in Ljubljana. It will take place on 17th September 2020 at 8 p.m. We invite you to register together with the congress registration. Our purpose is to connect the participants in a healthy way of socializing. Part of the registration fee will go to the Charity run organized at the University Children's Hospital in Ljubljana every year in April ( We hope you will join us and spend some nice moments with us. See you in Ljubljana! Local organizing committee

  • Networking dinner

In addition to the three mentioned above, I would also add that: The delegates can enjoy a half or one day trip to Slovenian beautiful sights. Slovenia is a country with an excellent geographic position at the crossroads of routes leading from the cold north to the warm Mediterranean south. On no more than 20,000 square kilometres, a fascinating variety of landscapes can be found, ranging from the Mediterranean seaside and stone Karst to the Alps and the Pannonian lowlands. Equally diverse and attractive is the cultural heritage of Slovenia and its people. With 58,5% of the country covered by forest, Slovenia is the second most forested country in Europe. Its neighbours are Italy to the west, Hungary to the northeast, Austria to the North and Croatia to the South and Southeast. The capital of Slovenia is located in the centre of the country, about an hour's drive from the Alps and the Adriatic Sea. Ljubljana is a lively industrial, commercial, administrative, and cultural centre with a population of 300,000 people, of which 54,000 are students. With its cafes, restaurants, shops and galleries, the picturesque Old Town on the banks of the Ljubljanica River is an increasingly popular tourist attraction.
