Dear colleagues, dear friends,
The European Society for Trauma and Emergency Surgery (ESTES) welcomes you to the 21st European Congress of Trauma and Emergency Surgery from April 26 to 28, 2020 in Oslo, Norway.
Similarly to previous editions of our congress, the ECTES will retain its international character this year by hosting over 40 Sessions with numerous speakers from all over the world. The ESTES is looking forward to offering a platform to experts in all areas of trauma and emergency surgery care. We will host several guest symposia including several European and non-European scientific societies like IATSIC, DGU, ATLS, ATCN and AO Trauma.
We are lucky to work in a field that is both diverse and dynamic. Within the last years, we have been able to establish so many different innovations for the benefit of our patients. Our five sections, Emergency Surgery, Disaster & Military Surgery, Skeletal Trauma and Sports Medicine, Visceral Trauma and Polytrauma, as well as the Permanent Education Committee are preparing an exciting and interdisciplinary programme.
We proudly welcome you to a city on the rise and a capital world-famous for peace politics, where people with diverse backgrounds exchange ideas and develop modern solutions. Oslo can present pioneering architecture and is surrounded by beautiful nature and sporting. We proudly welcome you to a metropolis so compact that international restaurants and great attractions are always just around the corner.
We are looking forward to a stimulating scientific and social event, and to welcoming you at ECTES 2020.
Congress president ECTES 2020
