Dear colleague,

We do hope that you be interested to participate in this meeting dedicated to Paediatrics and focussing on gastro-intestinal microbiota, prebiotics and probiotics. The concept of having a three day meeting focussing on "Pre- & Probiotics in Paediatrics" is really unique. No other meeting offers this combination. This meeting will not disappoint you as there will be outstanding presentations and many opportunities to have direct interaction with leading experts. As both fundamental research and clinical practice will be on the programme, every participant will find what he/she is looking for. We are aiming at a mixture of national and international delegates and speakers.

Besides the scientific aspect, Ghent is a very unique beautiful small city. We encourage you to stay one or a few days longer as this is one of the most beautiful cities of Belgium.
