Dear esteemed colleagues and friends,
The Challenges in Endourology meetings have been initiated in 2000 to offer an innovative and up-to-date programme in the field of endourology, to demonstrate through LIVE surgery cutting-edge technologies, and to broaden the horizons of its attendees.
Following 7-in-a-row successful organizations in Paris, the “Challenges in Endourology” will move to Amsterdam for the 8th International Meeting, to be held at the Okura Hotel from June 17th to June 19th, 2018.
For the 2018 meeting, we are planning a highly educational programme, including a variety of session types, among which workshops and LIVE and SEMI-LIVE surgery sessions that stand out for their educational value. No less important is the opportunity given to delegates to present their own work through poster and video sessions, chaired by eminent experts in the field, as well as a special session dedicated to “nightmare cases”.
We are certain that you will support this 8th edition with the same enthusiasm and that Amsterdam will become the meeting point for everyone interested in the field of Endourology next June.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee I cordially invite you to become one of the outstanding members of our friendly team in this engaging Meeting in 2018.
The Meeting Chair,
Jean de la Rosette, MD, PhD
Professor of Urology, AMC University Hospital, The Netherlands
General Secretary, Société Internationale d’Urologie
