Dr. José-Manuel Moltó-Jorda was the president of the 8th meeting of the ESNCH. It was held in Alicante, Spain, from May 19th to 21st, 2003 and took place in the “Palacio de Congresos del Colegio Oficial de Médicos de la Provincia de Alicante”.
An attractive programme, excellent platform and poster presentations as well as tutorials reflected impressively the interest in this meeting. Dr. Moltó and his team succeeded in excellently organizing and arranging an interesting and inspiring event in unique atmosphere. As the picturesque city, which has a three thousand years old history, is situated at the Mediterranean Sea and surrounded by the mountains, it has always been an important seaport.
