Dear Friends and Colleagues,
it is my privilege and great pleasure, as President of the Standing Liaison Committee of E.U. Speech and Language Therapists and Logopedists (CPLOL), to invite and welcome you to the 9th European Congress of Speech and Language Therapy which will be held at the Palazzo degli Affari and Palazzo dei Congressi in Florence, Italy, from May 7th to May 9th 2015.
CPLOL represents 33 national associations of SLTs with approximately 80,000 professionals from 30 European countries. Our main goal is to represent all professionals across Europe and promote Speech and Language Therapy on the scientific, academic and clinical arena.
The European Congress of CPLOL is a major event for the logopedic community and attracts a vast number of European as well as worldwide clinicians, researchers, academics and professionals from the field of communication rehabilitation and related areas.
Florence is the capital and the most populous city of the province of Tuscany. Due to Florence’s artistic and architectural heritage, it was ranked as one of the most beautiful cities in the world and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.  It is considered the birthplace of Renaissance and offers a multitude of historical and cultural attractions. A renowned Fashion city, a place of culinary delights and with its proximity to the famous Tuscan vineyards, it certainly offers its visitors the opportunity to live the "italianità"*.
The Congress Organizing Committee in collaboration with Uvet American Express and the Scientific Committee are working fervently to present a stimulating scientific program with keynote lectures, a large diversity of sessions, workshops and poster presentations that will appeal to the eclectic community of multilinguistic, multicultural and diversified attendees. In addition, the Congress always gives wonderful opportunities for social networking events, for professional exchanges, as well as cultural and culinary delectations.
I am looking forward to this event and to the opportunity to share it with friends and colleagues from our wonderful community of Speech and Language Therapists across all frontiers.
Let us "OPEN THE DOORS TO COMMUNICATION" together and share the passion!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

the Federazione Logopedisti Italiani is delighted with the opportunity to host the 9th CPLOL Congress in Italy with great pride and joy.
In 2015 through this event, the European community of Speech and Language Therapists will reaffirm their awareness of the significance of their professional role and the highly specific nature of the skills needed to meet the new challenges of the European health systems in these complex times.
The Speech and Language Therapists community has, for many years, been seeking and developing methods and solutions based on scientific evidence to promote quality in their interventions.
As a further example that Europe is not only a financial concept, the Federazione Logopedisti Italiani, FLI, welcomes you to Italy and to the city which best represents culture, history, places of excellence and innovation: Florence.
The 9th CPLOL Congress is held in conjunction with the World Expo, “Feeding the Planet, Energy for life”, a unique event held in Milan and a once in a life time experience, which will leave a lasting impression on those who also take the opportunity to visit it.
The Italian Association FLI will also contribute to the European Congress by holding its national conference “feeding the mind, quality for life” during the same week and at the same venue.  In this way, it will be sharing best practices in Speech and Language Therapy and reinterpret the main Expo theme.
In view of the scientific, professional and cultural opportunities presented by this important event, Italy awaits you!
Arrivederci a Firenze!
