Dear ESSR attendees!

The Boards of the European and Austrian Society of Surgical Research together with the LOC have extensively discussed and regularly monitored the global dynamics of Covid-19.

With health and safety of all participants being the utmost priority, we have decided to postpone the joint meeting of the European Society for Surgical Research and the Austrian Society for Surgical Research. 

The new dates of the meeting will be December 9th - 11th 2020.

Considering the relatively long time-span between the two dates we will re-open the abstract submission. This will give the chance to update data of already accepted abstracts, as well as to submit new work. For this purpose, a new early-fee registration and abstract submission deadline will be defined.

If you have already registered for the congress, if you are a faculty member, a successful abstract submitter, or an exhibitor/sponsor, we will be communicating with you directly in due course.

In the coming days the congress homepage as well as the congress program will be updated. As we are aware of the constant development of the worldwide Covid-19 spread we invite you to regularly check the congress homepage for updates. 

Thank you for your patience and for understanding this unprecedent situation and the decision which has been taken.

Kind regards from Innsbruck

Manuel Maglione
Chairman LOC
