Belgian Week of Gastroenterology

  • 2017 edition coming up
    We are happy to announce you that the XXIXth edition of the Belgian Week of Gastroenterology will take place at the Hilton Hotel, Antwerp from Thursday February 9 until Saturday February 11, 2017!

    We are now open for abstract submission and for registration to the meeting!

    The Belgian Week of Gastroenterology remains the frontline Belgian scientific meeting for all who are involved in research and care of gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary disorders. Abstracts can be submitted for presentation at the scientific meetings of the participating societies and research groups. The best abstracts of each group will be eligible for presentation at the Plenary Session, which will be scheduled on Saturday morning. Deadline for submission of the abstracts is December 1, 2016 at midnight!

    Since a few years the BWGE also includes an interactive case-report session. Deadline for submission of cases for the interactive case report session is also December 1, 2016 at midnight!

    During the BWGE 2016 2 ultrasound courses will be organized, including training of pathological conditions on high-quality phantoms: an abdominal ultrasound course for young ultrasonographers on Thursday afternoon and an advanced course on Friday afternoon. Separate registration is necessary through the website and the number of participants is limited.

    The BWGE also offers research grants to support research in gastroenterology and hepatology. Deadline for the submission for the research grant applications is December 13, 2016. More information can be found on the Research grants page.

    The scientific committee of the BWGE is working hard to put together an exciting program! Of course, the program will only be fully available after the abstract selection has been made. The program will regularly be updated as information from the different sessions becomes available. We encourage you to regularly check the website for program updates!

    Make sure to register online and get the low price registration until January 13, 2017.

    We are looking forward to seeing you in Brussels!

    Sincerely yours,

    Sven FRANCQUE and Isabelle COLLE
