Minimally invasive surgery is a revolution driven by technology

The introduction of miniaturised video cameras and thin and long surgical instruments changed the way we treat our patients and has changed surgery dramatically. Laparoscopic surgeons were the first to learn to use sophisticated technology in the general surgery O.R., and many of them help design the tools that we use. The EAES is determined to lead and shape the future of minimally invasive surgery, including the technologies we use in the operating room and outside it. One of the important activities to achieve that is to maintain a platform that enables open communication with our partners in shaping the future – engineers, designers, and the industry.


If you are a surgeon involved in the development of research on technology, you are invited to submit your work or come and learn what others do, and what lies in the future.

If you are an engineer or designer, submit your abstract and interact with your future users, or come and learn what your peers are currently busy with.

If you are from the industry, submit and present your prototypes and new products and get immediate feedback from the experts, or come and learn where the industry will be in a few years.
