Surgeons Come Together in Basel

The 47th World Congress of Surgery arranged by the International Society of Surgery (ISS/SIC) will be held in Basel from 13 to 17 August 2017. The decision for the choice of the venue was made based on the city’s security, political and economic stability, international travel options and a comprehensive system of public transport. A further factor that tilted the balance in Basel’s favour was the Congress Center Basel (CCB)’s modular infrastructure.

Around 2000 surgeons and exhibitors from all the different continents will be converging at the CCB. The focus of the congress is to be on the young generation of surgeons, for which it has coined the motto of “the Workforce of the Future”.
