The European Society for Surgical Research and the Austrian Society for Surgical Research present
ESSR 2020  “Turning ideas into reality. Be part of the translation!”

Dear colleagues and friends,

it is our great pleasure and honour to announce the

55th Congress of the European Society for Surgical Research and the
44th Congress of the Austrian Society for Surgical Research

which should have taken place from 13th to 15th May 2020 in Innsbruck and has now been postponed to 9th to 11th December 2020.

We will welcome participants from all over the world, and we are looking forward to receiving representatives of our sister societies from Japan, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

The congress will take place over two full days at the award-winning convention centre Congress Innsbruck which is centrally located and within walking distance to the city centre (www.cmi.at).

ESSR 2020 will provide a vibrant and exciting program embracing various surgical specialities including transplantation, oncological and general surgery, cardiovascular and cardiothoracic surgery, trauma and reconstructive surgery.

Get involved under the common denominator innovation and translation in a bench to bed journey attending basic, translational and clinical research sessions!
Get inspired by several keynote lectures including the talk by the Race Across America record-holder Christoph Strasser who will talk about pushing the boundaries, a topic very familiar in surgical research!

Don’t miss the pre-congress workshops! Coached by experienced clinicians and researchers participants will learn cutting edge research methods aiming at valorizing their research portfolio. Register now for the limited spaces of these workshops!

Leading professionals and junior attendees in the field of surgical research will have the unique opportunity to share their experience and knowledge in a friendly, informal atmosphere. Surrounded by spectacular mountains, close to the scenic river Inn, the venue will be a perfect background to set up and strengthen international networks.

The organizing societies are proud to award the best abstracts with prestigious prizes like the Walter Brendel Award, the Best Clinical Research Award, the B.Braun Award and the Award of the Austrian Society for Surgical Research.

Take an active role to make the ESSR 2020 congress unique and shape with us the future of surgical research!

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Innsbruck for an inspiring conference.

Yours sincerely

Dietmar Öfner-Velano
