Nordic Symposium on Digital Pathology

The Nordic symposium on digital pathology (NDP) was created to promote knowledge exchange across stakeholders in health care, industry, and academia. In 2019, the 6th NDP installment will take place in Linköping, Sweden, promoting development and collaboration in digital pathology for the benefit of routine care advances. We look forward to welcoming close to 200 participants from more than 10 countries!

In 2019, the NDP conference will be co-organized with the Swedish national Spring Meeting for Pathology. Thus, guests of both conferences are welcome to attend seminars and lectures from both the NDP conference and the Spring Meeting at their leisure.
