Two years after the first VIP Congress, in which the preferred guests were Latin American surgeons, North American surgeons will be at the center of the scientific scene in the 2014 edition. Asia will then play a special role during the 2016 congress.
The program will focus on the treatment of arterial diseases: technical aspects and future perspectives in vascular and endovascular surgery will be discussed by an outstanding international faculty.
Several sessions dedicated to free papers selected by the Scientific Committee will permit the choice of the best presentations (age < 38 y). The winners will also receive the refund of their registration fee and a free ticket for the gala dinner.
The congress will be held in the historical center of Padova, a city with a prominent role in the history of science (Galileo, Copernico) and of medicine (Vesalius, Morgagni, Harvey, Falloppio, etc..), also well-known for its beauty, homeland of Giotto’s masterpiece (the Scrovegni Chapel frescoes), St. Anthony’s basilica and Prato della Valle. The congress venue is located in the historical city center (dates: 26th, 27th and 28th June 2014, suggested arrival day June 25th), still maintaining its medieval aspect so well described by Shakespeare in “The Taming of the Shrew”.
Padova is very close to Venice (25 km), to Verona (45 km), to Treviso countryside and to the Dolomites (100 km). We recommend you to participate to this unique event together with your families and hope you will have the opportunity to extend your stay to enjoy one of the most amazing cities in the world!
