Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,

After Singapore (2016), the next ISDE World Congress will be held in Vienna. On behalf of the International Society for Diseases of the Esophagus, it is my honor, privilege and pleasure to invite you all to the 16th World Congress of the ISDE in Vienna, Austria in 2018.

The ISDE is the premier multi-disciplinary international organization focused on esophageal diseases. Its biennial congress aims to gather together all specialties involved in the clinical management and research of patients with esophageal diseases. This congress will provide an excellent platform not only for the exchange of clinical and scientific knowledge on the latest developments, but also for unique networking opportunities.

Vienna is a beautiful city with a rich cultural and architectural heritage mixed with modernity, and easily accessible from all over the world. You can enjoy Austrian cuisine and the beauty of various arts as well as academic exchanges in this congress.

Save the date and we are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna 2018.
