Dear Colleagues and Friends, Internists from all around the world,

Please allow me to cordially welcome you to Prague on behalf of the Organizing Committee of the Prague European Days of Internal Med­i­cine (PEDIM) Conference. Two years ago we organized the first PEDIM. Because the conference was appreciated by many participants and evaluated as quite suc­cess­ful, we decided to prepare the new one. This year we will focus on metabolic and cardio­vascular diseases. However, we do not want to overlook any real big news from internal med­i­cine. Therefore we are pre­paring the new sessions “top stories” or news from intensive care.
