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
