DEAR MEMBERS, COLLEAGUES AND FRIENDS,
on behalf of the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM) and the Scandinavian Society for Sexual Medicine (SSSM), it is a great pleasure for us to welcome you all to the 17th congress of the ESSM in Copenhagen, 2015.
Copenhagen was host to a very successful ESSM congress in 2005, and it is a true honor to celebrate the 10 year anniversary with a return to the Danish capital city. Copenhagen is a pulsating metropolitan capital as well as a historical oasis, which is home to the oldest monarchy in the world. You can reach Copenhagen Airport on non-stop flights from more than 140 destinations.
The ESSM congress will be hosted at the Bella Center. The goals of the congress will be to both deliver the optimal scientific and educational programs and to promote the field of Sexual Medicine. The content of the congress will cover topics regarding both sexes and all sexual orientations and both state-of-the-art educational opportunities and the newest innovative research will be highlighted. To achieve this, the faculty will include both renowned experts and up-coming stars in our field. The Local Organizing Committee will strive to make the importance of the congress evident to the public and to the scientific and health care authorities. This is crucial because of the obvious co dependence between the people who develop and the people who perform treatments. Finally, we wish to create more networking opportunities for especially young researchers and health care providers with an interest in Sexual Medicine.
If you have time to enjoy the city during the congress, a thousand year history awaits you in museums and open historical buildings throughout the city. For those who are more interested in modern trends, Copenhagen is also one of the world‘s leading design capitals.
We look forward to welcoming you to Copenhagen and together we will build a great ESSM congress for 2015!
