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!

Prof. Nicola Di Lorenzo
EAES 2023 Congress President

Dear colleagues,

We would like to welcome you to an undoubtedly other great EAES congress in Roma, 20 – 23 June 2023 which is themed: ‘The future belongs to the next generation’.

At this congress we will give extra attention to this next generation in the scientific programme. We will focus on lessons learned from complications in the famous ‘highway to disaster’ sessions, how to speed up your learning curve and how to improve surgical procedures. During the congress we will have more than 70 sessions on both basic laparoscopic procedures as well as the most advanced robotic procedures using artificial intelligence and modern imaging techniques. And last but not least, of course we will present an update on attempts of surgeons to make the OR greener.

Furthermore, we will offer you more than 5 hands on courses on topics like endoscopic procedures, laparoscopic suturing, ultrasound and choledochoscopy and workshops on for example how to write a scientific publication.

During this congress you have the possibility to meet industry and discuss with them your latest wishes and explore the instruments and devices you would like to have near you in the OR. You will meet colleagues from at least 60 different countries who will be also present on our excellent social activities in the beautiful city of Roma.

Hope to welcome friends from all over the world and meet you in Roma.
