Ii is with regret that we must inform you that the V International Congress on Prebiotics, Probiotics in Pediatrics scheduled on October 23-25 has been cancelled. We had no choice but to take this step because there are no guarantees regarding safety for our event in the setting of the violent protests underway in Chile.
I regret any inconvenience this may cause you.
I appreciate your understanding.

Dear Friends & Colleagues:
It is a such a great pleasure and an honor to extend to you a warm invitation to attend our 5th International Congress on Probiotics, Prebiotics in Pedriatrics.
This will be the first time that this Congress is being held in South America. Members of the Chilean Nutrition Society, Chilean Pediatric Society and the scientific committee on Prebiotics, Probiotics in Pediatrics, are waiting with open arms and hearts to welcome you all to the our region.
Our 5th International Congress will be held in La Serena, Coquimbo Region. The city is an important tourist destination, especially during the summer, where people go to visit the beaches. The region has notable marine species. The Elqui Valley in the Coquimbo region is home to a number of astronomical observatories, owing to the region's clear skies. It is also home to a 600-meter-long dam, the Puclaro, which confines the Elqui River and produces a reservoir of some seven km in length. Nobel Laureate poet Gabriela Mistral was a native of Vicuña, in the Elqui Valley too.
Moreover, this congress simply comes at the perfect timing. October is the best time to visit La Serena for ideal weather.
We are making arrangements with several of the world´s best speakers to share their knowledge and experience with us. The congress will strive to offer a great platform to refresh our knowledge base and explore innovations in Probiotics and Prebiotics in Pediatric. It will be a great opportunity for the Latin American professionals and students to present their scientific papers and interact with the leading keynote speakers, researchers, friends and colleagues as well as sponsor and exhibitors.
We hope to see everyone in La Serena, Coquimbo, Chile!
Sylvia Cruchet, MD
