FNM 2020 4th Meeting of the Federation of Neurogastroenterology and Motility
Australia
Organiser: Australasian Neurogastroenterology and Motility Association

The Local Organising Committee is pleased to announce they have succeeded in setting new dates for the FNM 2020 meeting; April 14-17, 2021. This will mean that the enormous amount of planning will still benefit the Neurogastroenterology community. The meeting will continue to be referred to as “FNM 2020”. Adelaide, South Australia will remain as the destination, with the Adelaide Convention Centre as the meeting venue. We are very pleased that our down-payments for the conference centre have been transferred, in full, to the new dates.

Registrations which have already been received will remain valid for the rescheduled meeting. The program of FNM2020 will remain substantially unchanged, but speakers will be invited to update their presentations. Over the next 12 months we intend to develop an online version of the meeting, which will provide an exceptional conference experience for anyone who cannot travel to Adelaide due to International border restrictions imposed due to COVID-19.

53rd Annual Meeting
Italy
Organiser: EPC

The European Pancreatic Club in 2021 celebrates its 53rd Annual Meeting that attracts over 600 delegates from 22 countries, consisting of pancreatic specialists, among them surgeons, endoscopists, gas­troenterologists, oncologists, endocrinologists, pathologists, neuroendocrine doctors and scientists. The 53rd meeting will be a particularly special opportunity to promote communication between basic and clinical scientists in Europe interested in the pancreas and its disorders.

The official language of the meeting is English. This would have been the first time for the meeting to be held in Verona, a UNESCO world heritage site with more than two thousand years of history nestled in northern wine country at the foot of the Dolomiti Mountains and coddled by the meandering curves of the Adige river. Unfortunately, the ongoing Covid situation necessitates a virtual conference for 2021. The 2020 Paris virtual meeting was a great success, and we hope to continue on those lines in the other romantic European city, which is the home of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and while in 2021 we cannot welcome you here, there is always an open invitation to all EPC members to visit us.

17. Interdisziplinäre Update - GI-Oncology 2021
Germany
Organiser: MCI Deutschland GmbH

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

das Jahr 2020 hat uns alle mit der COVID-19 Pandemie vor ganz neue Herausforderungen gestellt. Wir haben zum ersten Mal GI-Oncology virtuell durchgeführt und uns über die vielen positiven Rückmeldungen sehr gefreut. Im Namen der wissenschaftlichen Leitung möchte ich Sie herzlich zum interdisziplinären GI-Oncology Update 2021 einladen, welches aufgrund der aktuellen Lage leider wieder nur im virtuellen Raum stattfinden kann. Dafür haben wir ein erweitertes Konzept mit spannenden Themen und viel Raum für den interaktiven wissenschaftlichen Austausch ausgearbeitet. Den zeitlichen Rahmen haben wir auf 2 Tage vom 11.-12. Juni 2021 ausgedehnt, um dem interaktiven Konzept gerecht zu werden.

Im Fokus der Veranstaltung liegt wie bisher der klinische Nutzen neuer Therapiekonzepte und die Diskussion neuer Perspektiven für Diagnostik und Therapie von gastrointestinalen Tumoren. Die Sessions bleiben organbezogen und haben aber einen klaren Fokus auf inter- und multidisziplinärer Diagnostik und Therapie. Natürlich werden auch „Tumor-agnostische“ und supportive Konzepte eine Rolle spielen. Ich denke hier an immuntherapeutische Ansätze, neue Inhibitoren, aber auch das Management von Komplikationen einer Tumorerkrankung wie z.B. Thrombosen.

Natürlich möchten wir ihnen auch wieder neueste Studienergebnisse aus dem gesamten Spektrum der gastrointestinalen Onkologie präsentieren und in die klinische Praxis einordnen.

Im Programm finden Sie daher auch wieder einen Onkologie „Hotspot“, in dem ganz neue Informationen aus aktuellen Kongressen prägnant dargestellt werden.

Allen Mitwirkenden und Sponsoren dieses Symposiums gilt mein herzliches Dankeschön.

Ich freue mich auf Ihr Kommen und die Diskussion mit Ihnen!

38th GEEW (Gastroenterology and Endotherapy European Workshop)
Organiser: ASBL Gastro-Entérologie et Endothérapie, Erasme Hospital, Brussels, BELGIUM

Started in 1983 and held every year in June, this meeting has become established as one of the largest European Workshops in its field, gathering around 400-500 participants coming from 55 to 60 different countries worldwide.

In 2020, it is the first time since its creation that GEEW could not be held due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We will miss this annual opportunity to exchange with our audience and Faculties.

38th GEEW is therefore postponed to June 20-22, 2021 and we will make sure it will be stronger and even more attractive. The meeting is designed for endoscopists and gastroenterologists but also for physicians in training as well as for nurses and GI assistants. It will include live video demonstrations permitting interchanges between faculty and registrants during procedures, using our interactive App, lectures and quizzes. The audio-visual transmission to the Brussels Exhibition Centre on Monday and Tuesday will be broadcast live from 4 endoscopic suites located at Erasme Hospital and each procedure will be performed by international expert physicians selected for their outstanding teaching capabilities in collaboration with members of the local staff.

The overall goal of this course is to provide information about current technology and to enhance knowledge in gastroenterology and endotherapy. Moreover, new techniques and new accessories will be demonstrated and discussed with the audience. In controversial cases, a consensus will be sought by means of the GEEW App.

Further information and updates are available at https://www.live-endoscopy.com.

Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, 16th Congress of ECCO Virtual
Denmark
Organiser: European Crohn's and Colitis Organisation

Dear Colleagues,

let me invite you to the ECCO'21 Congress - which has now been decided to feature a virtual congress experience in order to minimise any risk related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the beginning of the new decade, 2021 will be a crucial year to look into "IBD precise". With its steadily increasing number of participants, the ECCO Congress has become the leading world congress for Inflammatory Bowel Diseases and we look forward to welcoming you to a highly diverse programme with a major focus on precision medicine for IBD.

Among the highlights of the 2021 Scientific Programme are topics like direct comparison and combination of drugs. In 2021, we should be able to determine the role of artificial intelligence in IBD, to choose the safest therapeutic option in an era of multiple medications and to tailor therapeutic strategies to patients' profile such as age.

Top specialists will also provide new insights on the real burden of IBD, the optimal managment of disease complications, the best way to monitor our patients and the ultimate therapeutic goals.

There will be a Basic Science Session dedicated to "The microbiome as game changer in IBD?" that will discuss implementation of recent findings into practice.

Having multiple tandem talks, and several sessions that involve all the different ECCO Committees with live discussions during the presentation of clinical cases will guarantee direct interaction with the audience.

As every year, alongside the Scientific Programme, we have planned various educational activities before the start of the Congress, such as the 12th N-ECCO School and also the first edition of the brand new 1st Postgraduate Course, the 6th D-ECCO Workshop directed at clinical trialists, and the 15th N-ECCO Network Meeting as well as S-ECCO and H-ECCO Masterclasses.

Do not wait and check out the new ECCO 2021 Congress website and register on time to secure your seat for our educational activities!

Looking forward to welcome you to the world's biggest Congress for IBD - the ECCO Congress.

Yours sincerely,

Laurent Peyrin-Biroulet

XIX Kongres Polskiego Towarzystwa Gastroenterologii
Poland
Organiser: Polskie Towarzystwo Gastroenterologii

Since mid-March, we have been living in a different reality, unknown to us so far, created by the COVID-19 epidemic. This reality is characterized by a tendency to avoid direct interpersonal contacts, both professional and social. Scientific and educational congresses are the essence of such contacts, and any attempts to restrain them would reduce the global effect of such ventures. The date of the PTG-E Congress, for which I and my team are responsible, was scheduled for September 24-26, 2020.

We have been closely following the processes of "defrosting" particular spheres of life and plans for the organization of other large medical events envisaged for autumn this year They are usually canceled or limited by software and converted into webinars. I am afraid that you would not like this form of Congress, apart from the technical issues of ensuring uninterrupted transmission of video and audio from 4 conference rooms with the possibility of active participation of participants in discussions.

After consultations with the Management Board of PTG-E and Termedia, which is responsible for congress logistics, we came to the conclusion that the only right solution would be to postpone the date of the Congress to the next year, more precisely to 16-18 September 2021.
