And here we are again! After two years of intense work I am sure that all of us have news to share about that incredible sample called urine and that incredible organ called kidney. The journey we started together two years ago is this year going to have a new marvellous meeting in Caparica. Urine is the best storyteller of us. As such it has grown constantly and consistently since we met in 2013: 6817 are the manuscripts published in 2013 and 2014 related with urine and the ”omics” field.

The good memories we have from the 2013 and 2015 meetings, it guarantees a wonderful 2017 meeting. And we indeed believe this is going to happen. Yes… but with some changes.

First we are going to make the schedule less intensive and second we are going to set one evening free, so you may decide between relax at the beach, or visit Lisbon in an organized trip. This trip will include the crossing of the Tajo Estuary by ferry. You may even decide to play golf, or go to the SPA facilities the new venue has available (see more at (http://www.aldeiadoscapuchos.pt/).

And last, but not least, we have some of the best in the arena:
