EMR and ESD workshop: Hands-on training with live porcine models
Portugal
Organiser: EAGEN and ESGE

It is with great pleasure that EAGEN and ESGE announce a series of live porcine hands-on ESD and EMR workshops in the training centers of the Erasmus School of Endoscopy in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, the School of Health Sciences – University of Minho (ECS-UM) in Braga, Portugal and the Experimental-Research Center ELPEN, in Athens, Greece.

ESD and EMR techniques are increasingly practiced in Europe with a growing need for intensive individual training. We have developed a training program to master endoscopic mucosal resections and submucosal dissections in a realistic setting using a live porcine model.

Next to hands-on EMR and ESD training, the management of potential complications such as bleedings and perforations will be taught under guidance of an international faculty consisting of renowned experts in the field.

We hope that this unique workshop will serve the need for advanced training in this exciting and developing area of interventional endoscopy and look forward to welcoming you in Athens, Braga and Rotterdam!

2020 ESPEN VIRTUAL CONGRESS
Organiser: ESPEN, The European Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, substantial uncertainties, unfortunately, remain on safety and feasibility of many activities and events for several months ahead, both in Europe and worldwide. Travel limitations also will most likely remain substantial in the near future.

ESPEN has therefore taken the difficult decision to cancel our physical 2020 Congress, and at the same time, we have decided to put our best energy in organising a Virtual Congress. We wish to thank the Lyon teams who continue to collaborate with central ESPEN, and to reassure all of you that ESPEN is fully committed to creating a virtual event up to the highest standards of science, education and innovation.

We will use state-of-the-art technology to ensure fruitful exchanges, presentations of original findings and inclusion of up-to-date topics in a renewed programme. We believe that we need to meet virtually in this very difficult year, to continue to disseminate and strengthen our strong messages on the key role of nutritional care in all fields of patient care; and we need to discuss how clinical nutrition has to become an integral part of care also in the new challenges posed by COVID-19 patients.

We have been greatly encouraged by an outstanding number of abstract submissions at the regular submission deadline; under these difficult circumstances, it is extremely meaningful and appreciated. 

Let us all take the opportunity to network and learn from each other in the ESPEN 2020 Virtual Congress. We look forward to meeting you all in September!

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.

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.
