This year, the conference consisted of 3 parallel tracks including adult pulmonology, paediatric pulmonology and thoracic/cardiothoracic surgery.

The congress, which had a strong emphasis on local research, welcomed hundreds of delegates as well as internationally renowned experts from across the globe. It offered thought-provoking programmes which covered a number of “bread and butter” aspects of pulmonary and thoracic medicine in both adults and children including asthma, COPD, sleep disorders, pulmonary infections, tuberculosis, pulmonary vascular diseases, pulmonary malignancy, interstitial lung disease, and pleural diseases.
