BSW 2017 - Call for abstracts

             Call for abstracts: Free Paper, Poster, BAST-Trainer-Trainee-session, Young Investigator’s Award of the 18th Belgian Surgical Week

Dear Colleagues,

The 18th Belgian Surgical Week will take place in The Ostend Thermae Palace, from Thursday 18th to Saturday 20th May 2017.

This year’s scientific theme, suggested by the President, and approved by the full Board is

Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS)


This theme will trigger off many interesting sessions prepared by the affiliated societies and sections of the RBSS.

As previous years, a plenary meeting, with talks by renown invited speakers centred on the congress’ theme, will be held.

Besides these lectures, the scientific committee of the R.B.S.S. will organise ‘Free Paper sessionswhich are not limited to the general theme of the congress. Every topic is most welcome! Case reports will be handled through a separate track during the submission process.

Moreover, trainees and young surgeons have the possibility to submit their free paper for the Young Investigator’s Award. 

A session dedicated to the presentation of the best e-posters will equally be held.

The instructions for abstract submission as well as rules for prizes and awards can be found on the dedicated conference website.

The session initiated by the BAST five years ago, involving trainers and trainees, will elaborate a meeting dedicated to clinical cases. The selection of the cases will be performed by the BAST in collaboration with the Scientific Committee of the RBSS. Submission of these cases is also welcomed through the conference abstract submission system.

We think that these sessions are really important, not only for our trainees, but also for every senior member of the R.B.S.S., as they will give the chance for everyone to share his/her experience and they will consequently offer a good opportunity for discussion and confrontation, which is really important for the life of the R.B.S.S.

We thus encourage you to submit abstracts via the dedicated conference website

Abstract submission between, 15th  January 2017 till 28th February 2017 23:59:59 CET.

We thank you for your prompt collaboration,

Sincerely yours,

The Scientific Secretaries, A. D’Hoore and A. De Roover
