Venue: Budapest
Starts: Wednesday, October 10, 2018
Ends: Friday, October 12, 2018

Given the success of the past congress ESSO 36 (Krakow, Poland) and this year's ESSO 37 (Amsterdam, the Netherlands), we are delighted to announce that the next congress for all surgical oncologists will take place in Budapest, Hungary, on 10-12 October 2018.

Organised in collaboration with the Hungarian Surgical Society (HSS) , ESSO 38 will illustrate in detail the latest practice-changing discoveries in oncology, surgery and the latest multi-modal therapies.

With a congress theme “Better outcomes with innovative surgery”, the Scientific Committee wishes to give a new impetus to the ESSO Congress with a real focus on surgical technicalities, this way responding better to surgeons’ needs in their daily practice.

With a view to favour discussions and networking, the scientific programme will include more interactive sessions, debates and provocative workshops. Education will also be the motto of this congress, which will feature more practical sessions “How do I do it?”, expert videos and hands-on sessions. In addition, poster walks and “posters in the spotlight” sessions will enable scientific exchanges and increased networking opportunities.

While the scientific programme will cover how to surgically handle various tumour sites,  other overarching and transversal topics like immunotherapy, minimally invasive surgery, and interventional oncology will raise the interest of all delegates, whatever their specialty.

Furthermore, ESSO 38 will be the ideal occasion to discuss, learn and gain new perspectives on how the latest research will impact on surgical oncology daily practice.

The Congress Co-Chairs – ESSO President Santiago González-Moreno and HSS President George Lázár – guarantee that this Congress will feature the top leading oncology experts, each of them contributing with their expertise to the meeting’s specialty and interdisciplinary sessions as well as inspirational debates.

With a sapient mix of “classic” sessions and innovative formats, ESSO 38 will allow the closest interaction between participants and key opinion leaders, to include everyone interested in the “hot discussions” of European oncology professionals, with the ultimate goal of raising the standards in surgical oncology practice

Summing up, ESSO 38 will provide a revitalized and dynamic scientific programme with eminent speakers, including the new generation of experts in the field,, to jointly advance the science and practice of surgical oncology for the benefit of cancer patients. We would like to welcome you all in lovely Budapest!
