The 27th European Conference on Philosophy of Medicine and Health Care (ESPMH) took place between 14 and 17 August 2013 in Basel. The conference was organised locally by the Institut für Bio- und Medizinethik of the Universität Basel. Participants included 155 scientists from 34 countries in Europe, Asia and North America who took part in the 4 plenary sessions, 3 special seminars and additional 30 parallel sessions (in groups of 6).

The SNF Conference funding allowed us to invite distinguished experts (6 women and 7 men) not only from Switzerland but also from other parts of the world. They gave talks in the plenary sessions and the key note lectures for the special seminars. The participants of the conference highly esteemed the superior selection of invited speakers as they represent the top class in their field.
