The 53rd meeting of the ESSR will be held in Madrid, Spain.


Dear colleagues,

It is my pleasure to inform you that the 53rd Congress of the European Society for Surgical Research will take place in Madrid from 30th May to 2nd June, 2018 at the Faculty of Medicine of the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain.

Since 1966 the ESSR main objective is to provide a multidisciplinary, multinational platform that encourages the development and expansion of high quality basic and clinical surgical research activities and to promote education in this field. The ESSR annual meeting provides the perfect podium where both young researchers and clinicians can present their most recent scientific work and expand their scope. More than 300 participants will be expected, physicians working in the field of surgery, representatives of important medical universities and professional clinicians.

Madrid is a lively cosmopolitan and friendly city where everyone feels at home. The capital of Spain offers a safe, comfortable setting where taking time out while attending the meeting is possible. Its cutting-edge transport network, rich artistic and natural heritage, quality accommodation and fine cuisine make it one of the most attractive cities in the world. The local organizing committee of the ESSR 2018 is prepared to satisfy your expectations.

Please become a member of the society for discounts and potential ESSR fellowships.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Madrid.

Yours faithfully

Lisa Rancan, Ph.D.
Congress President
