XLI Congress of the European Society for Surgical Research - ESSR


Rostock (Germany), May 17-20,  2006





Dear colleagues,
on behalf of the organizing committee it is my pleasure to welcome you in Rostock-Warnemünde, to attend the 41st Congress of the European Society for Surgical Research from May 17-20, 2006. The Conference venue Hotel Neptun in the charming seaside resort Warnemünde offers a simply unique flair at the shores of the Baltic Sea.
The most distinctive feature of our Society is to bring together young researchers from different European countries involved in surgical research. Thus, the scientific program encompasses a wide range of topics relating both to clinical and experimental surgery and is designed to attract a broad range of audience covering all surgical disciplines. Beside the pre-congress ‘hands-on’ workshops, free paper and posters sessions, the scientific program is enriched by symposia and state-of-the-art key note lectures, given by highly esteemed speakers from across Europe and the United States.
Apart from providing a discussion platform for the latest findings in surgical research, we are convinced to stimulate an enjoyable atmosphere that will evolve fresh ideas and collaborations as well as new friends.
With my kindest regards

Brigitte Vollmar
Congress president
