3rd Digital Pathology Congress


Attracting nearly 400 delegates, the 3rd Digital Pathology Congress was held on 1-2 December, 2016 in London. Feedback to the conference has been overwhelming, with 93% of attendees saying they would recommend the conference to colleagues and 87% saying they are interested in personally returning next year.

Feedback praised the mix of talks, posters and vendors available including “the variability of the talk and dynamism of the topic” and even that the event “helped to change my opinion of digital pathology”.

Others enjoyed the learning and networking environment created by “gathering people with different prospects and angles; vendors, scientists, pathologists and technological expertise”. The melting pot of multidisciplinary experts in attendance was a common theme in the feedback, many praising the “mixture of pathology and image analysis, mixture of companies and academics”.

2016 speakers included:


The conference is part of the successful Personalised Medicine series which includes events on precision medicine, synthetic biology, the human microbiome, biologics and digital PCR. The meeting is also the sister meeting to the US and Asian Digital Pathology meetings taking place in July and August respectively.

The continuing growth and advances in digital pathology solutions is transforming the industry. With wide ranging applications and benefits including reduction in lab costs, increased workflow efficiency, greater interconnectivity, effective training/education methods, improved decision making is enabling enhanced patient care. The result is that digital pathology is rapidly gaining momentum worldwide.

Poster Presentations

Poster presentation sessions will take place in breaks and alongside the other breakout sessions of the conference. Your presentation will be displayed in a dedicated area, with the other accepted posters from industry and academic presenters.

We also issue a poster eBook to all attendees with your full abstract in and can share your poster as a PDF after the meeting if you desire (optional).

Whether looking for funding, employment opportunities or simply wanting to share your work with a like-minded and focused group, these are an excellent way to join the heart of this congress.

In order to present a poster at the forum you need to be registered as a delegate. Please note that there is limited space available and poster space is assigned on a first come first served basis (subject to checks and successful registration).

We charge an admin fee of £100 to industry delegates to present, that goes towards the shared cost of providing the poster presentation area and display boards, guides etc. This fee is waived for those representing academic institutions, hospitals and not for profit organisations.

Submission instructions

We will require the form (downloadable below) to be submitted by the 10th of November. This is the formal deadline however space is another limiting factor so early application is recommended. Therefore please contact us with any questions you have as soon as possible.

Exciting panel

The panel was really exciting and very well attended. I found the scientific content of this meeting to be extremely high and I certainly appreciate the strong level of industry support and the level of discussion and dialogues that has taken place at this meeting. One of the best of the year, certainly.

Best Content

I'm fortunate to attend a lot of pathology meetings and a lot of digital pathology meetings. This meeting has the best content and the best speakers, probably one of the best informative meetings of the year with very, very strong and growing industry support thanks to all of you. They squeezed in a lot in 2 days but I think the meeting really works.
