‘The concept of this symposium and the very positive response to our previous meetings promises to meet your expectation. The faculty, local, national and international, the AV team, and the congress organisation will strive to meet the stated objectives,’ they said.

• Event topics: Detection and differentiation of early gastrc neoplasia
• Non Polipoid colorectal neoplasms: clinical relevance and management
• Interventinal therapy of GIT fistulae and perforations; stents for benign strictures
• Treatment of difficult biliopancreatic stones: approach to ERCP failures
• New technologies: Modification of ESD, interventional EUS in oncology, endotherapy of obesity, radiofrequency ablation, progress in capsule endoscopy, novel imaging techniques

Among the learning opportunities organised, evaluations will be made of recent advances in endoscopy, as well as assessments of their clinical utility and level of evidence; new endoscopic techniques, instruments and accessories, can be applied and compared with traditional methods and devices; recognition can be made of the integration of the disciplines of gastroenterology, oncology, surgery and radiology in future patient care; the choice of the optimal endoscopic approach for specific case management will be highlighted, and management of failed interventions and complications discussed.

Along with presentations and lectures by international experts (with simultaneous translations), there will be a special satellite symposium for nurses. In addition, live cases will be transmitted in high definition by a professional audiovisual team (Lux AV) from the Evangelisches Krankenhaus Düsseldorf.

National certification, CME accreditation will be arranged. They also point out that the reasonable registration fee includes all symposium activities, breakout sessions, lunches, refreshments and free access to the local public transport.
