Greetings from the Organization Committee of AsAES 2018.
It is with great pleasure we wish to invite you to the 16th Biennial Congress of Asian Association of Endocrine Surgeons to be held on March 8th–10th, 2018 at the Hotel J W Merriott, Aerocity, New Delhi, India.
This Congress is coinciding with the Silver Jubilee year of the establishment of Indian Association of Endocrine Surgeons (IAES). During the last two decades the speciality of Endocrine Surgery has grown leaps and bound in several parts of our country and Asia Pacific region. Establishment of endocrine surgery units/departments, training opportunities, safe and quality surgical care, adoption of new technology, high quality research publications etc. In spite of financial and logistic constraints the rapid growth of the specialty could be attributed to visionary leadership, strong determination and excellent training opportunities.
Endocrine Surgery is a relatively new specialty compared to other specialities of surgery. However, it possesses unique features which others specialities do not have, so it continues to attract new talent. The real challenge for us is to nurture this talent and build the future of endocrine surgery. The theme of 2018 AsAES congress is thus “Building the Endocrine Surgery of Tomorrow”. Besides, the congress will have regular scientific features like Plenary Lectures, Symposia, Panel Discussions, Meet the Professor, Grand Round, Selected Surgical Video demonstration , Satellite Symposia and Poster Presentation in both standard hard copy and Multimedia formats. We are going to have Pre-congress workshop on 6th and 7th March 2018 which will be announced shortly. Plan your abstracts , presentation for the call which will be announced in March.
The weather in New Delhi in early March is quite pleasant. You don’t need to carry warm clothes as the spring will be setting in by that time. There are many things to see in New Delhi and nearby cities like Agra (world famous Tajmahal ), and Jaipur (palaces). Our event management team will help you in planning the tour of your choice. Do bring your family to enjoy the best season of India in it’s capital and beyond.
With warm regards
