President's Message

Dear Association members and potential delegates,

Preparations are well under way for the ALSGBI Annual Scientific Meeting in Aberdeen on the 27 and 28 November.  There will be an ALSGBI Laparoscopic Surgery Training Day immediately prior to the meeting, please see the information under Training Day for details on how to apply.  The day will be held at the Cuschieri Skills Centre in Dundee and will focus on upper and lower GI surgery using cadaveric dissection.

The ALSGBI Annual Scientific Meeting will follow our successful format of live operating on the first day with live 3D surgery being transmitted.  The theme of the meeting is ‘There and back again’ with a focus on re-operative laparoscopic surgery.  The second day is a mixture of invited talks, submitted abstracts and DVD’s.

Please look around this conference microsite for all the details of the meeting including abstract submission, registration and hotel booking.  Early booking of travel and accommodation is recommended.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Mr Mark Vipond
President, ALSGBI
