Resuscitation Conference

Come learn, share experience and discuss the present and future of resuscitation with experts from around the world!

Short lectures, panel discussions, pig labs, workshops, simulation sessions…

From physiology to real life.

Come join us and share your experience.

Together let’s discuss the present and future of Resuscitation to improve survival after cardiac arrest.

Conference dedicated to anyone passionate about resuscitation and the chain of survival (paramedics, physicians, students…) with experts from around the world.

Very special social event at the Senate with the possibility to closely discuss and network with speakers and other attendees in a beautiful and exceptionnal venue!


The gala takes place in the evening of the 14th at the Senat in the Presidency's lounge

The Luxembourg Gardens
Situated on the border between Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, the Luxembourg Gardens, inspired by the Boboli Gardens in Florence, were created upon the initiative of Queen Marie de Medici in 1612. The gardens, which cover 25 hectares of land, are split into French gardens and English gardens. Between the two, lies a geometric forest and a large pond. There is also an orchard with a variety of old and forgotten apples, an apiary for you to learn about bee-keeping and greenhouses with a collection of breathtaking orchids and a rose garden.

Hurry Up!

Last year our tickets sold fast so don’t miss. Conference will start in
