Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,


Welcome to Basel, Switzerland, the city on the Rhine and home to one of the oldest medical Faculties in Europe. Basel - embedded between Switzerland, Germany and France - is very proud of its past, currently counting about 800'000 inhabitants in the agglomeration on the River Rhine. 


Basel was a Celtic settlement and became an important roman military stronghold during the first century B.C. An earthquake destroyed part of the city in 1356, but 100 years later the University of Basel was founded in 1460 as the first Swiss University.


Paper manufactory and printing were established in Basel and attracted scholars, humanists or anatomists like Paracelsus, Erasmus of Rotterdam or Andreas Vesalius.


The strong cultural heritage in Basel was also developed through intense exchanges with German and French cultures across the borders. Here you will find an amazing concentration of art museums like the Basel Museum of Art with its magnificent extension opened in April 2016 or the world-renowned Beyeler Foundation among others.


The pharmaceutical giants like Roche and Sandoz and Ciba Geigy, now kown as Novartis were all founded in Basel, and still have their headquarters and strong research facilities. Relevant for the ISS/SIC, was the leadership of Martin Allgöwer as secretary general for many years, and he moved the ISS/SIC office from Brussels to Basel in 1979, which was very important for the success of the Society.


The WCS 2017 Local Organizing Committee (LOC) had a relative late start due some external circumstances well explained by President Patti. The LOC is now well catching up – along with our congress organizer MCI – to propose a landmark meeting. A very attractive scientific program, prepared by ISS/SIC and the 6 Collective Member Societies, is about to be finalized. Various hands-on courses for breast surgeons (BSI), GI-surgeons (ISS/SIC), trauma-surgeons (DSTC by IATSIC) will be available.


Once more, the most appreciated scientific writing course will take place, as well as several special lectures and internationally recognized speakers. Attractive pre- and post-congress tours will be proposed, if delegates choose to take some additional days to visit Switzerland or neighboring countries.


Remain updated through the wcs2017.org webpage, which will be active shortly. Put the congress dates in your agenda, 13-17 August 2017 and don’t miss the offer for the “early birds”!


We are very much looking forward to welcoming you here in Basel in August 2017.


With our profound friendship
