The 31st GEEW will take place at the Brussels Exhibition Centre, Hall 10 and Auditorium 2000, from Monday, June 17, to Wednesday, June 19, 2013.
Started in 1983 and held every year in June, this meeting has become established as one of the largest European Workshops in its field, gathering around 950 participants coming from 70 different countries worldwide.
The course is held in the AUDITORIUM 2000, a comfortable half circled meeting room garanteing good visibility of the large screens.
The technical exhibition will be organised in the Hall 10 of the Brussels Exhibition Centre. This hall offers a surface of 2.980 m2 and is conveniently located since it offers a direct link to the Auditorium 2000 where the scientific sessions are held and allows a spacious exhibition surface where coffee-breaks and lunches can be offered to the participants in a pleasant athmosphere. The welcome desk of the Workshop will be built up at the entrance of the Hall 10, making of this surface the inevitable way to reach the conference room.
This meeting is designed for endoscopists and gastroenterologists but also for physicians in training as well as for nurses and GI assistants. It will include live video demonstrations permitting interchanges between faculty and registrants during procedures, using interactive personal computer assistance, lectures and quizzes. To encourage interactive discussion, each half day will end with a GEEW Questions and Answers time, leaded by a group of experts, to clarify and discuss the live cases and the topic of the session. Simultaneous translation into French will be provided.
The audio-visual transmission to the Brussels Exhibition Centre will be broadcast live from 4 endoscopic suites located at Erasme Hospital and each procedure will be performed by international expert physicians selected for their outstanding teaching capabilities in collaboration with members of the local staff.
The overall goal of this course is to provide information about current technology and to enhance knowledge in gastroenterology and endotherapy. Moreover, new techniques and new accessories will be demonstrated and discussed with the audience. In controversial cases, a consensus will be sought by means of the interactive electronic voting system.
Endotherapy is becoming more and more complex and fascinating new technologies have been implemented over the last few years. All of these will be demonstrated and future prospects will be discussed during live demontrations and State of the Art lectures.
We look forward to welcoming you in Brussels in June 2013.
