ESCP Nice 2018
Registration for The European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) 13th Scientific and Annual Meeting the conference is now open, with early bird rates available until June.
The conference, which showcases the latest in innovation, research and best practice in the coloproctological field will take place in Nice, France between 26 and 28 September this year. It is expected that this year will be bigger than ever – over 1,700 delegates attended the Berlin meeting last year.
Delegates at the conference, which will be held at the Acropolis Convention Centre in the bustling city centre of Nice, will hear from several high-profile speakers over the course of three days including Sir John Burn, the renowned geneticist, Michael Seres, a key patient advocate and Johan Askling, a leading voice on data in surgical research.
A series of pre-conference hands-on educational sessions will also be delivered in collaboration with industry partners, where attendees will have the opportunity to participate in interactive learning sessions and gain experience of using cutting edge technology and techniques from some of Europe’s leading specialists.
Ethem Gecim, President of ESCP, said: “I look forward to welcoming all participants to the conference in Nice later this year for what promises to be a unique opportunity, uniting experts in coloproctology from around the globe. It’s also a great opportunity to strengthen research and collaboration within the field”.
The conference will also include symposia delivered in partnership with the European Crohn’s and Colitis Organisation (ECCO), the European Association for Endoscopic Surgery (EAES) and the European Hereditary Tumour Group (EHTG) to bring together the highest calibre of speakers in each field.
The ESCP app will again provide users with a wealth of information over the course of the paperless conference.
