32th Conference for the Study of Liver
Taiiwan
Organiser: APASL

Dear colleagues, ladies and gentlemen,

On behalf of the organizing committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to join the 32nd Conference of the Asian Pacific Association for the Study of the Liver (APASL 2023), which will be held at the Taipei International Convention Center in Taiwan on February 15 – 19, 2023.

The theme of APASL 2023 is “Innovation and Paradigm Shift in Hepatology”. Over the past decades, our cumulative knowledge has made dramatic progress in the field of hepatology, changing various treatment concepts in liver diseases. Such progress includes the use of direct anti-viral agents in the treatment of hepatitis C, various systemic therapeutic agents in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma, the use of artificial intelligence to support the diagnosis of liver diseases, etc. To build on our collective commitment in making continuing progress in this field, APASL is organizing a comprehensive scientific program including state-of-the-art lectures, symposiums, and workshops, etc. Our goal is to bring together renowned investigators from all over the world to share their latest research findings and knowledge on current hepatology.

The organizing committee believes that APASL 2023 will bring you the most comprehensive knowledge in both fundamental and clinical science in the field of hepatology.

I look forward to meeting all of you at APASL 2023.

Sincerely yours,

Han-Chieh Lin
President

CDDW-CLM Conference
Canada
Organiser: CAG & CASL

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Joint Canadian Digestive Diseases Week™ and Canadian Liver Meeting Conference 2023, taking place February 28 - March 5, 2023 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

This year, the Conference will be a joint effort between the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology and the Canadian Association for the Study of the Liver, as well as their affiliates the Canadian Network on Hepatitis C, Canadian NASH Network, and Canadian Association of Hepatology Nurses. This means that attendees will be able to engage with content from two distinct conferences – CDDW™ and CLM – as well as exceptional Symposia and other programming at the same time and under a single roof. We’re also so excited about the numerous opportunities for delegates from across the GI and hepatology communities to come together for shared networking and social events as part of the collaborative Conference.

This newly re-imagined Joint CDDW™-CLM Conference 2023 will be the premiere meeting for all members of the Canadian gastroenterology and hepatology communities including trainees, nurses and researchers with an interest in liver and GI.

Posters and trainee involvement are the cornerstone to the meeting, providing the latest research in gastroenterology and hepatology from across Canada. The Conference will showcase more than 400 abstracts and three days of lectures on the latest advances in research, medicine, and technology. The Conference also provides an opportunity for professionals in the field to discuss the medical, technological, ethical, regulatory and legal issues facing the profession today.

The Canadian perspective on liver and gastrointestinal disease research is necessary to address clinical practice concerns unique to Canada’s demographics, geography, and epidemiological trends; this must include specific attention to priority populations including Indigenous peoples. Our program will provide this Canadian perspective on liver and gastroenterology, stressing our combined ongoing commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Highlights of the 2023 Conference will include the high-profile plenary presentations, small group discussions, the return of hands-on sessions as well as the new Mentorship Café. As well, our newly branded Presidents’ Gala is a natural opportunity to enjoy an evening of networking, fun and entertainment.

Whether one works in patient care, research, education, administration, or the broader industry in general, our program offers something for everyone!

Welcome to Antwerp!
Welcome to Perio Master Clinic 2023!

Dear colleague, 

On behalf of the European Federation of Periodontology (EFP), its 37 affiliated national perio societies and our 16,000+ oral health professionals I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to you to attend Perio Master Clinic 2023, our triennial conference addressed to dental clinicians, which will take place in Antwerp, Belgium on 3-4 March 2023 on the following topic:

The Perio-Ortho Synergy

The philosophy of the Perio Master Clinic is to improve the skills and vision of clinicians with the latest and most effective clinical techniques based on sound scientific principles in periodontology, implant and orthodontic dentistry. Speakers and delegates will focus on advanced techniques from a practical, useful point of view this fifth edition of Perio Master Clinic.

Our programme will focus on a multidisciplinary combined periodontal and orthodontic treatment approach, workshops on the day preceding the conference’s regular sessions will be organized given the success of these hands-on workshops during the last Perio Master Clinic in Dublin 2020. The workshops create an opportunity for sponsorship in the area of equipment, hand instrumentation and biomaterials. 

Our scientific programme has confirmed an outstanding list of speakers from Europe, the US and Latin America, all leading experts in their field, so the delegates will definitely feel highly motivated aiming for a predictable, aesthetic and long-lasting treatment outcome in complex patients.  

We very much look forward to welcoming you on the occasion of this unique conference.

The Congress

EAU23: The 38th Annual EAU Congress

For our 38th Annual Congress we are returning to Italy’s fashion capital after previous successful editions in 2008 and most recently in 2013. EAU23, to be held on 10-13 March, 2023 also marks a return to a spring congress after three consecutive summer editions.

The four-day scientific programme includes live surgery, state-of-the-art lectures, case discussions and debates. Thousands of abstracts are submitted each year by emerging scientists and the EAU offers hundreds of them a chance to present their research. The Annual Congress is also an opportunity for young urologists to attend educational courses by the European School of Urology, and to hone their surgical skills through a variety of hands-on-training workshops.

EAU23 will feature a vast Exhibition where pharmaceutical and technology companies can showcase their latest products. For this edition, we are also including patient and nursing speakers to the programme, emphasising the multidisciplinary nature of urology.

Together, we can make EAU23 in Milan a triumph for urological healthcare. We look forward to hearing from you!

EFORT Congress
Austria
Organiser: EFORT

On behalf of the Executive Committee and the Science Committee, we would like to invite you to participate in the 24th EFORT Congress in Vienna, Austria from 24 to 26 May 2023.

The annual meeting of EFORT is the largest platform for European Orthopaedics to exchange knowledge and experience within Europe but also with colleagues from other parts of the world.

This year our main theme is "Building the Future of Orthopaedics and Traumatology".

By deliberately choosing this broad statement, we wanted on the one hand to be able to cover the breadth of the O&T specialty and on the other, to inspire some stability, if possible, especially in these uncertain times as we strive to find new visions.

The word “stability”, as a magic word in motion analysis and mobility in general, helps us to anchor our professional achievements looking back, for just a little while, and to see the progress made over the years.

At the beginning treatments employed traction techniques, Charnley introduced new approaches for hip replacement and later, internal fixation of fractures through nailing and plating had a direct impact on allowing shorter hospitals stays and faster return to function. Today’s discussions include, besides the scientific perspectives, the aim to be more intermodular and inclusive. 

EFORT brings a network of passionate professionals, all using their experience and knowledge. As orthopaedic surgeons we must have the ability to tackle one of the global issues; how to help the world’s ageing population stay fit and healthy into increasing old age.

However, the growing musculoskeletal burden meets financial restrictions. The workload of nurses and surgeons can lead to burnout, weaknesses of healthcare systems are emerging more and more everywhere.

So how can we maintain clinical progress, transfer of knowledge and the human factors in balance with the needs (and constraints) of our economies?

We are back in the beautiful city of Vienna. Our wish was to develop an inspiring scientific programme and to energise participants through presentations, debates and discussions on these burning issues.

Topics such as 3D before surgery, 3D printing for patient specific implants, robotics, biological implants and technological advances in diagnostic equipment will be at the forefront of this 24th EFORT Annual Congress.

Virtual reality and artificial intelligence belong to the future of our discipline and represent real opportunities for cost effective treatments sustained by expensive technology.

Surgeons, manufacturers and policy makers can contribute in protecting resources so as to fulfill the patients’ expectations, namely the need for treatments with proven long-term benefits.

Come and join us to see where Orthopaedic & Traumatology will stand in the future.

Following an outstanding 83rd EAGE Annual Conference in Madrid it is a pleasure to invite EAGE members and all those with an interest in the future of geoscience and engineering to participate in next year’s annual event, to be held in Vienna at the ‘Messe Wien Exhibition & Congress Center’.

The theme of this coming Annual is ‘Securing a sustainable future together’. It recognizes the challenges and turmoil we face in the world today. That’s why our focus will be on the key issues of energy security and independence, a sustainable energy transition and how we all need to adapt our traditional ways of working and cooperation to address this uncertain future.

With these topics heading our new Strategic Programme, the conference will as usual showcase how the latest geophysical, geological, and engineering research, ideas and case studies have a vital contribution to make in the quest for solutions. We hope to build on the high-quality Technical Programme delivered in Madrid and continue the discussion on increasingly relevant issues going forward such as decision quality and analysis, digitalization, partnerships and stakeholder engagement. Many of the best-attended technical sessions in Madrid covered the low carbon business areas e.g., CCS, CCUS, H2 storage, geothermal. We intend to explore further these themes to include discussion on transferable skills and re-training/educating.

Congress Theme:

The future belongs to the next generation

 

Dear friends and dear colleagues,

It is my privilege and honour to introduce the 31st International EAES congress, to be held in Roma in June 2023, incorporating the XXI SICE national congress. (Società italiana di Chirurgia Endoscopica…….).

In recent, unlucky times, interfacing with colleagues and friends happened through a virtual modality.

Now, we are back to the possibility of meeting in person, seeing and speaking with each other, renovating friendships, creating new personal links.

And this will happen in Roma, the city where all roads bring people from all over Europe and the World since millennia!

The congress, themed “The future belongs to the next generation”, aims to give our brilliant and enthusiastic young surgeons, space and opportunity to update, and be updated, on a wide field of minimally invasive and endoscopic cutting-edge technologies, new procedures and techniques, protocols and more.

To this end, the congress will represent a valuable platform to interact with first-class scientists through discussions, “meet the expert” opportunities and master classes and hands-on courses.

The leading role of EAES in innovation and education has been consolidated through decades and based on solid ground: Roma2023 will undoubtedly confirm and reinforce this position in the surgical arena.

We look forward to welcoming you in ROMA!

9th Congress of European Academy of Neurology
Hungary

Welcome to Budapest 2023!

 

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

For the 9th annual congress of the European Academy of Neurology we will be travelling to the grand and beautiful city of Budapest on 1-4 July, 2023. 

Located right in the heart of Europe, Budapest has always been a place where people and ideas come together and mingle. Here you can find the echoes of the Barbarians, and the Roman and Ottoman Empires, as well as traces of early Catholicism and the largest operating synagogue in Europe. Today, it attracts countless visitors from around the globe, for both business and pleasure, with its modern infrastructure and unique blend of cultural, architectural, and culinary experiences. 

The city has a proud scientific pedigree too. Numerous notable researchers have called Budapest home while contributing to the development of neurology and neurosciences. Names such as Ernő Jendrassik, József Mátyás Baló, Károly Schaffer, and Georg von Békésy will surely be familiar to EAN congress participants for their tremendous achievements in the field. The Hungarian Neurological Society continues these rich traditions today, providing support and unique opportunities, not only for Hungarian colleagues, but also those from neighboring countries, with the aim of bringing together neurologists from eastern and western European countries.

As always, the EAN Congress will provide an unrivalled chance for our community to share a rewarding clinical and scientific experience. With the rich cultural tapestry of Budapest as our backdrop, we also have the ideal environment for establishing new contacts and friendships, and of course renewing old ones. 

On behalf of the EAN and the Hungarian Neurological Society we invite you to join us in Budapest in 2023 and look forward to extending a warm welcome to what will surely be a fantastic congress in a truly inspiring location. 


See you in Budapest in July 2023!

EASL School: Alcohol-related liver disease: diagnosis, risk stratification and management

This EASL school is dedicated to chronic alcohol related liver disease, covering all aspects of the patient’s journey through the healthcare system. From alcohol’s impact on citizens in the society, to early disease detection, biomarkers used in healthcare pathways from primary to secondary care, global and specialised interventions, and new innovations to improve patient management. With the school, we aim to combat the stigma and taboo associated with the harmful effects of alcohol, and replace it with fully updated and high-quality evidence highlighting the many opportunities for improving our patient’s life and health.  

The format of the school based on reversed-classroom format will be a platform for participants to discuss best-practice, gaps in knowledge, opportunities and barriers towards effective healthcare pathways. The topics will center around biomarkers and interventions: (1) existing and future diagnostic, monitoring and prognostic biomarkers, their applications, pitfalls and technical concepts. (2) existing and future interventions, whether pharmacological, psychosocial, or dietary, with a discussion of barriers and opportunities for giving patients’ access to effective treatments.

EASL School: Clinical dilemmas in cirrhosis: an approach from the evidence to the decision

A dedicated clinical school on the use of concepts and skills of evidence-based care to solve controversial real-life problems in the management of cirrhosis. The course will focus on those areas of cirrhosis management where agreement is far from being settled, including use of beta-blockers and anticoagulation, TIPS to prevent recurrence and re-compensation. The course will follow a model of small group workshops to guide students through critically appraisal techniques of the evidence and its translation into practice as recommendation. The study will rely on local expertise from hepatologists and methodology researchers from the liver units of tertiary hospitals from Madrid, Spain. During the 2-day course students will have the opportunity to learn about the background of clinical controversies in this area of clinical practice. Attendees will then undertake case-based group sessions, facilitated by the faculty to understand how published research can be used in practice to develop graded recommendation/statements of the addressed clinical problems. These sessions will then form the basis of a final plenary session presented by the delegates for shared discussion with the faculty.

12th ILAE School for Neuropathology and Neuroimaging in Epilepsy
Brazil
Organiser: ILAE

The international classification of epilepsies recognizes a large spectrum of substrates as potential predictors of disease progression and treatment response. Reliable neuropathological and neuroimaging work-up of epilepsy-associated brain lesions represents thus an important diagnostic value for the successful management of patients with focal epilepsy. The 12th ILAE School for Neuropathology and Neuroimaging in Epilepsy will specifically address the issue to enable participants to better recognize and classify various brain lesions. We will offer an integrated approach to combine neuropathology and neuroimaging skills and knowledge. The workshop has been held previously in Germany, Brazil, the USA, and China with a focus on histopathology and the endorsement of the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE). Advanced hands-on histopathology training will still be offered in small groups led by distinguished tutors but also includes hands-on skills on reformatting brain MR images. We will offer all participants use cases to further develop their skills and help integrating knowledge of histology and imaging related to the diagnosis and treatment of human focal epilepsies.

Course Directors: Fabio Rogerio, Fernando Cendes and Ingmar Blümcke

Target Audience: Neuro-/Pathologists, Neuroimager, Epileptologists, Neurosurgeons, Neurologists, and Basic Researchers at all levels of professional expertise (please indicate your level within application)

EHMSG 2023
Belgium
Organiser: EHMSG

Dear Colleagues,

It has been 30 years since our group held its annual meeting in Belgium, so it is my great pleasure, on behalf of the European Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group (EHMSG), to invite you to Antwerp for the 2023 Conference on September 7th – 9th.

Antwerp is the capital of Antwerp Province in the Flemish Region and the second-largest metropolitan region after Brussels. Antwerp is on the River Scheldt, linked to the North Sea, and the port of Antwerp is one of the biggest in the world. 

There is a folklore tradition that the name “Antwerpen” comes from “hand werpen”, Dutch for “hand throwing”. A giant called Antigoon is said to have lived near the Scheldt and demanded a toll from passing boatmen. He cut off the hand of anyone who did not pay and threw it in the river. Eventually, the giant was killed by a young hero Silvius Brabo, who chopped off the giant’s own hand and flung it into the river. 

Antwerp is notable for its great painters. Peter Paul Rubens is one the most famous Flemish painters. He had many apprentices working in his studio (now known as the “Rubenshuis” museum), including the young Anthony Van Dyck. It is during that time, that the two altarpieces currently exposed in the Cathedral of our Lady in Antwerp, were produced. 

Antwerp is also a rising fashion city and famous for its local products and diamond district. 

Our venue is located in the heart of the city next to the Antwerp zoo, which is one of the oldest zoos of Europe, and near the Central railway station. The conference diner will be held at the Horta Art Nouveau Zaal where you will be immersed in fine delicacies, that Belgium is known for.  

The EHMSG 2023 meeting promises to be scientifically inspiring, highlighting the latest developments from the Helicobacter and Microbiota field by outstanding researchers and clinicians from all across the world.

I look forward to seeing you in Antwerp in September!

With my best wishes,

Annemieke Smet
President of the European Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group

35th European Congress of Pathology
Ireland
Organiser: ESP

Join us for the 35th European Congress of Pathology!


Dear Colleague,


The European Society of Pathology (ESP) together with the Faculty of Pathology, Royal College of Physicians, Ireland are looking forward to welcoming you all and extending a ‘Cead Mile Failte’ (100 thousand welcomes) when you join us in Dublin, Ireland for the European Congress of Pathology (ECP 2023),  September 2023. 

Ireland has been traditionally renowned for its history in education, being affectionally known as the “The land of Saints and Scholars”, and the congress organisers are delighted to have the honour of hosting this first class international educational event whilst providing an environment for the sharing of knowledge, innovations and experiences that will enhance the activities of the world-wide pathology community for the benefits of all our patients.

Irelands' award winning Convention Centre Dublin (CCD), located in the heart of Dublin, the largest and capital city, has an easy access to the airport, hotels, and all that the city has to offer. Hugely successful as a venue for international conferences, the centre will provide an ideal focal point for all our delegates, speakers, as well as our partners in industry. Keynote lectures by international renowned experts, a full programme of lectures, slide seminars and interactive sessions by leaders in their fields to multiple oral and posters presentations will provide an ideal opportunity for continuing professional development, networking and sharing of ideas. Integral to our programme will be sessions organised by and for our trainee pathologists encompassing important and cutting edge advancements in pathology practise, important for their future pathology careers. 

Our motto for the ECP 2023, “Pathology – a bridge between Science and Medicine” acknowledges the significant changes that practising pathologists have made and continue to make to their daily practise so as to ensure that new beneficial diagnostic and technological advancements are embraced and integrated into everyday practise for the benefit of all patients. The meeting will reflect the extremely dynamic development in the field of pathology and update on these advancements through the excellent programme prepared by the ESP working groups, ESP-affiliated Societies, Education and Trainee Subcommittees.

Boasting a rich history embedded within its numerous museums and historical buildings, strong literary, theatrical and musical traditions, as well as including a wide choice of restaurants, ‘pubs’ and entertainment venues, Dublin will provide a welcoming city for all. We hope that through the multiple social events and activities here in Dublin, both organised by the congress and arranged on your own, you will experience first-hand the renowned Irish hospitality and experience a flavour of Irelands rich cultural history.

34th IASGO WORLD CONGRESS OF THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF URGEONS,GASTROENTEROLOGISTS AND ONCOLOGISTS
Italy
Organiser: IASGO

IASGO stands for the International Association of Surgeons, Gastroenterologists, and Oncologists that was founded in 1988 and today, has more than 1700 members from over 90 countries worldwide.

The mission of this organization is the globalization of medical knowledge and expertise through a well-structured system of continued medical education. IASGO believes that medical knowledge and expertise belong to every human being and that it has to be available beyond any discrimination, based on individual, institutional, or national level, to every patient that strives for survival because of challenging and life-threatening diseases.
We are currently experiencing an era of transition with significant innovations. Exciting scientific and technological advances are changing all areas of our lives. The recent emergency linked to the pandemic from COVID-19 has inevitably played the role of an accelerator by increasing society’s focus on health issues. As a result, new technologies and medical therapies are emerging for many diseases.
At the IASGO 2023, we will discuss recent developments in surgical oncology to improve patient care and quality standards. Molecular biology and biotechnology are also revolutionizing medicine. The management of cancers is changing through the characterization of tumor molecular biological profiles using next-generation sequencing. The future of medicine is increasingly taking shape with the latest discoveries in genetics that enable promising new directions in oncological therapies.
Understanding the specific disease in each cancer patient evoked a paradigm shift in oncology and is now opening new horizons in diagnostics and therapeutics. Progress is being made in the development of molecularly targeted therapy. Precision medicine aims to design and optimize the pathway for early diagnosis, assess prognosis, and tailor therapeutic interventions. Furthermore, artificial intelligence algorithms can now successfully predict the risk of cancers and gastrointestinal diseases.

More and more evidence suggests that lifestyle plays a fundamental role in well-being and patients’ health. Normal body weight and constant physical activity prevent gastrointestinal, metabolic, and neoplastic diseases and manage their presence. Likewise, proper nutrition counteracts chemotherapy’s side effects and helps faster recovery after surgery as demonstrated in the gudilenes of the ERAS Socieity with which IASGO cooperates.
The newly established IASGO multidisciplinary clinical trials consortium for the treatment of oncological diseases seeks to improve diagnossis and increase treatment feasibility and efficacy. It also aims to make the available treatments more accessible, improves patients’ quality of life and compliance with therapies and follow-up, and thus optimize the use of resources.

Last but not least, sustainability is becoming increasingly important in medicine and healthcare. Physicians need to be aware of eco-friendly solutions that provide high-quality care to patients while lowering costs and reducing environmental impact. Prevention, telemedicine counseling, training, and expanding healthcare coverage equitably should be the way forward.
For all these reasons and more, please join us at the upcoming IASGO Congress held at the Palazzo Della Gran Guardia in Verona between 9-12 September 2023. Verona is a spectacular city, a key part of Italian history, a symbol of art and culture in the world, and a recognized UNESCO heritage. We look forward to seeing you at this celebration of the latest medical and scientific advancements in GI cancer treatment during the IASGO 34th World Congress in the beautiful and traditional city of Verona.

Welcome Message

Greetings from World Psychiatric Association!

Together with our valued member societies & The Psychiatric Association of Austria, WPA looks forward to welcoming you to the 23rd WPA World Congress of Psychiatry in Vienna, Austria, 28th September – 1st October 2023.

There are exciting times for the practice of psychiatry as psychiatry and mental health are witnessing rapid changes, especially with the current pandemic that is placing a big impact on health care systems around the globe. Today, treatment and recovery of mental disorders go hand in hand with promotion and prevention, and there is an increased interest in rehabilitation and psycho-social interventions.

I am pleased that WPA is organizing its 23rd World Congress in Vienna, Austria, with the theme Psychiatry: current knowledge and perspectives for action.

We will examine and discuss all the crucial issues in psychiatry and mental health and are setting up an exciting scientific program with numerous sessions and lectures that convey our present scientific and technological revolution. Delegates will certainly profit from up-to-date research data, the best lectures from experts in all fields of mental health, high-quality scientific content, interaction between mental health & other health & social care professionals, patients and carers, and relevant peer-to-peer networking.

Furthermore, whether your contribution is in the field of psychopathology, biologic psychiatry, pharmacotherapy, psychiatric training, psychotherapy, social psychiatry, rehabilitation, prevention, or services organization, it will surely be an opportunity to share our knowledge.

We are particularly excited to be hosting such a significant event in Europe.  The diversity of the region encourages diversity in the program, with opportunities to explore how we work in scarce resources versus high-income settings, and how we can share best practices across settings of all kinds across the world.  We will review the 2017-2020 Action Plan and its themes of collaboration, reaching those living with adversity, and the rich and varying ways in which the role of a psychiatrist can be legitimately expressed.  We will investigate how the time-honored approaches and the newest techniques in psychiatry – including those in psychotherapies, neuromodulation, pharmacology, digital technologies, and social therapies – can be used practically to support people affected by mental ill-health, their families and friends, and community groups. These groups will join researchers and mental health professionals to consider advocacy, planning, and policymaking across sectors to promote the advancement of psychiatry and mental health in all countries.

Vienna is considered among one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. In addition to attending a high-quality scientific deliberation, you will have the chance to enjoy this beautiful part of the world which has been consistent, over the last several years, coming as one of the most favorable travel destinations for its amazing historical patrimony, culture, natural wonders, and the warm-welcoming people.

Join colleagues and thought leaders from across the globe for learning, sharing, and networking.

Needless to say, in our Congress, you will find a memorable reception, informed scientific discussions, great networking prospects, and enjoyable cultural and gastronomical events from our Austrian hosts.
