The 28th ERS International Congress is taking place in Paris this year and I am looking forward to enjoying the experience; the Congress is the biggest in respiratory medicine, it is a forum to get updated with the latest studies in the field, to meet peers and key opinion leaders, to enjoy the many educational sessions and to be part of this exciting and productive atmosphere, in a great congress centre and an historic and alluring city.

This event is the result of many months of hard work. The ERS Science and Education Councils have worked tirelessly alongside ERS Officers to develop a programme of sessions and activities which not only represent the latest in respiratory medicine and science but also cater to the varied needs of our growing membership and wider community. This year's programme, as in the past, has something for clinicians, scientists and allied health professionals: live and hands-on sessions, grand rounds, meet-the-expert seminars, new scientific evidence and, very importantly, the opportunity to meet with colleagues and to network.

Networking is always a very big pull for our Congress; with over 22,000 delegates regularly in attendance, it is rightly seen as the place to be and to meet up with colleagues and peers from all over the world. It can be the catalyst for new collaborations and forming networks and this helps the advancement of knowledge and science and also helps our members' careers. Having the opportunity and the proper space to share ideas and knowledge and discuss issues and experiences plays a significant role in fulfilling our own personal goals of becoming better and feeling part of a productive and energetic community, it also helps reach the ultimate goal of better respiratory health across Europe and worldwide.

Covering key topics in respiratory medicine from across the spectrum of disease areas including TB, lung cancer, chronic and acute respiratory failure, sleep breathing disorders, interstitial lung diseases, pneumonia, cystic fibrosis, COPD and asthma, amongst others, the Congress programme is set to deliver the best advances in both science and education.

This Congress will specifically highlight the importance of environment in respiratory health and focus on the need to personalise medicine in the respiratory arena. Special attention will also be paid to our interactions with microorganisms in our environment as well as those that live in peace within our organism.
