31st International Vicenza Course on Critical Care Nephrology
The 31st International Vicenza Course on Critical Care Nephrology will be held in Andrea Palladio from June 11–14, 2013. Starting in 1982, the Vicenza courses have featured an outstanding faculty and gathered participants from numerous countries. The themes of Critical Care Nephrology, Hemodialysis, and Peritoneal Dialysis have been discussed in rotation, leading to the most comprehensive review in the specific areas of practice and research. The 2013 edition of the course is dedicated to Critical Care Nephrology. Our task is to put together specialists from different disciplines in a single scientific event with a multidisciplinary approach to the critically ill patient with acute kidney injury and multiple organ dysfunction. The scientific quality of the course and its multidisciplinary nature are guaranteed by the reputation of the faculty and the endorsement of several scientific societies. We really hope that a large number of delegates will join this important event which is becoming a classic appointment for the experts and the physicians who want to receive updated information in the field of Critical Care Nephrology. Companies and Members from the industry of the field are invited to join the event reserving booth and spaces in the exhibition area.

Early View for Hemodialysis International
Hemodialysis International is now part of the Wiley InterScience Early View service. Click here to view all the articles currently available. Articles are published online, in advance of their appearance in a print issue. These articles are fully peer reviewed, edited, and complete—they only lack page numbers and volume/issue details—and are considered fully published from the date they first appear online. This date is shown within the published article online. Because Early View articles are considered fully complete, please bear in mind that changes cannot be made to an article after the online publication date even if it is still yet to appear in print. The articles are available as full text HTML or PDF and can be cited as references by using their Digital Object Identifier (DOI) numbers. (For more information on DOIs, please see http://www.doi.org/faq.html.) On print publication, the article will be removed from the Early View area and will appear instead in the relevant online issue, complete with page numbers and volume/issue details. No other changes will be made. The implementation of Early View for the Hemodialysis International represents our commitment to get manuscripts available to view to the academic community as quickly as possible, reducing time to publication considerably without sacrificing quality or completeness.
