Welcome message

Dear Delegates,

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the Seventh Mediterranean Emergency Medicine Congress (MEMC VII) in the city of Marseille, France. This biennial congress represents a successful collaboration between the American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM), the European Society for Emergency Medicine (EuSEM), and, this year, the French Society for Emergency Medicine (SFMU).

You will recall the remarkable success of our prior congresses in Stresa, Italy; Sitges, Spain; Nice, France; Sorrento, Italy; Valencia, Spain and Kos, Greece. The number of attendees and represented nations has grown. We anticipate that nearly 2,000 emergency medicine specialists representing more than 75 countries will converge on Marseille.

We have always targeted the Mediterranean basin. This year we have chosen France and the city of Marseille, the largest and oldest French city on the Mediterranean coast, founded by Greek merchants 2600 years ago. Through the ages, Marseille has always been an important harbor for traders and travellers. With the opening of the Suez Canal, Marseille became one of the main harbors from which ships departed to all the continents.

This year’s main theme is ‘Simulation in Emergency Medicine’. A range of activities and sessions have been organised to explore, experience, and discuss various applications of simulation, its implementation and its evaluation in our professional domain. The simulation activities include:

In 2013, Marseille is the European Capital of Culture. In addition to its vast history, Marseille is renowned for its gastronomy, its beaches and its wild mountainous coastal area of outstanding natural beauty, the Calanques. The islands of the Frioul archipelago, including the Château d’If, are located in front of the Old Harbour, central point for boat tours.

This collaboration between AAEM, EuSEM and SFMU promotes the specialty of Emergency Medicine and offers a wonderful opportunity for academic and scientific exchange. We have invited world-class speakers, researchers, and educators who will give outstanding lectures, discuss clinical cases, and moderate several hundred abstract and poster presentations. We invite you to contribute to the success of the congress by sharing research findings and by ensuring that you attend and participate in the wide range of scientific sessions and social events.
