Your invitation to PAPS 2025


It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us for the 58th Annual PAPS Meeting in Melbourne, Australia.

The PAPS 2025 will run from 13th to 17th April, and will see Melbourne host the meeting for the first time since 1970. While the fashions may have changed a little in the last 5 decades, our commitment to no neckties has not!

As always, PAPS will be an ideal opportunity for all of those interested in paediatric surgery from across the world to join together for a collegiate and entertaining meeting. There are no meetings quite like PAPS to foster relationships across specialties, as well as continents. Highlights of PAPS 2025 will include exposure to Australian flora and fauna, as well as the opportunity to visit the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (home to Taylor Swift’s largest concerts ever).

We look forward to hosting you in Melbourne, one of the world’s most liveable cities.
