Dear colleagues and friends,
We want to welcome you to the 47th World Congress of Surgery of the International Society of Surgery (ISS) which will take place August 13-17 in Basel, Switzerland. Basel is a lovely city, commonly considered the cultural center of Switzerland. The city is situated at the border with Germany and France, therefore very easily reachable from any part of the world through the Zurich international Airport which is connected by train to the city. Basel has a modern and efficient convention center which has already hosted many important meetings.
I would like to stress that along the goal of a successful and scientifically sound congress, the focus of the ISS will be on the new generation of surgeons who represent the work force of the future. Special membership and congress fees will be available for medical students, residents and fellows. The ISS foundation will support the participation of surgeons from low income countries through travelling grants. Similar grants are also sponsored by the participating societies.
We look forward to seeing you in Basel, Switzerland!
Dr. Marco Patti
President International Society of Surgery & Congress President WCS 2017
