EURO-NOTES 2012 is the 6th joint meeting of the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES) and the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) on Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) and will take place from October 4 – 6, 2012 in Prague, Czech Republic.
The format of the EURO-NOTES 2012 workshop has been further developed and this year the focus will be on advanced interventional endoscopy. Experts in laparoscopic surgery and interventional endoscopy engaged in NOTES research / clinical practice as well as biomedical industry will remain highly involved.
Hands-on training on live animals will for the first time enhance the workshop. Offered to a limited number of registrants on the Saturday, participants may sign in for this activity when registering for the workshop.
Authors of top accepted posters aged 40 years or under will receive a travel grant (€ 500) and waived registration fee. All other authors of accepted abstracts for poster presentation will be offered the reduced early bird registration fee.
EURO-NOTES 2012 is designed as a working conference on NOTES and advanced interventional endoscopy. Delegates are greatly encouraged to register in “teams” composed of a surgeon and a gastroenterologist.
The development of NOTES is only possible with the cooperation of gastroenterologists, surgeons and biomedical industry, and we look forward to welcoming you in Prague!
