BSW 2020 Home

Dear colleagues,

You are cordially invited to follow our virtual 'BSW light' from November 25th to November 27th, 2020.

We decided long ago to cancel the « real » BSW but we want to give all of the colleagues whose abstract was selected the opportunity to to present their work initially submitted for BSW 2020 in May.

This is what we offer you:

November 25-26th, 2020 : two parallel online rooms: virtual, 2 parallel free papers sessions, the BAST trainer-trainee session and the video sessions, from 17.00 until 21.00h

November 27th : one “plenary”  session, from 17.00 until 20.00h, also virtual

November 28th, 2020 : BGES-BAST-RBSS hands-on workshop,  a classic by now is cancelled despite all efforts undertaken, due to the recurrent surge of the COVID 19 pandemic. Registered trainees will be contacted individually.

The program is now online available on the conference website

The ever-changing restrictions, the uncertainties, the questions, the fear, our health, our loved ones, our career, our finances, the future........ I am fed up with COVID and I am aware that most of you are too.
However, we can’t ignore COVID’s impact on our surgical practice. Even being tired of it, we considered it our task to address it in the only plenary session of the congress on Friday Nov 27th. We have invited surgeons from different countries and specialties as well as local 'Belgian heroes' to explain how they manage their work during COVID-crisis in their countries. 

We sincerely hope we will be able to organize a « real » BSW in 2021. More info to follow soon !

As such: the only thing left to do is register for this extraordinary online gathering!

Please join us on the first - and hopefully last - virtual BSW !

In name of the RBSS Board,

Charles de Gheldere
President RBSS 2019-2020
