21st BSW-'Light' + Training workshop


BSW 2020 light (e)-version 25-27/11/2020, 5-8 pm

+ BAST-RBSS-BGES Saturday workshop 28/11/2020


As COVID-19 is gradually releasing it’s grip on our society, we all hope our life will slowly get back to normal  - if  ever - in the months to come.

The RBSS Board hopes your loved ones and yourself all managed to get through this crisis without personal damage.

You know we reluctantly have taken the  decision to cancel the BSW 2020 because nobody is able to predict which confinement measures will be in place next fall.

However, we don’t want 2020 to pass up without any kind of BSW.


This is why we plan a RBSS event next fall. Call it the "BSW 2020 “light”.

So please SAVE the DATE  : 

November 25-26th, 2020 free papers, 2 parallel virtual rooms 

November 27th : one plenary session, (virtual)

November 28th, 2020 : BGES-BAST-RBSS hands-on workshop,  a classic by now. 

The hands-on workshop will -COVID permitting- be physical. Location and timing is still to be determined.

The rest of the sessions will be digital. Platform, format and exact timing  are also still to be determined.

The free paper sessions  and plenary session will be scheduled from 5-8 PM in order to interfere as little as possible with your professional activities and private life.

The virtual plenary session will  be organized in collaboration with the sections and affiliated societies and  will be dedicated to the impact of COVID on our surgical practice, bearing in mind that only a limited number of presentations will be possible. 


Please note that NO new abstract submission will be organized for the BSW light; the free papers will be selected from the already submitted abstracts. Athors have been informed about their acceptance status medio September. Instructions on the use of the virtual platform for presentation and uploading your presentation will be communicated shortly.
