Dear friends and colleagues,

It is our great pleasure and honor to invite you to the 22nd European Course in Plastic Surgery, which will be held from 5 to 7 November, 2013 in Thessaloniki, Greece.

Thessaloniki is the second biggest city in Greece and the capital of Macedonia. Situated in the northern part of the country, it is an important commercial port and also a major transportation hub for southeastern Europe.

Thessaloniki is renowned for its festivals, artistic events and cultural life. It is also the city of the Aristotle University, the largest University in Greece and the Balkans. The Department of Plastic Surgery of the Aristotle University is the first university department in Plastic Surgery to be founded, and one of the leading educational centers in the country.

We are convinced that Thessaloniki will be a suitable place to host the upcoming 22nd European Course in Plastic Surgery and to continue the long and successful tradition of those top quality educational events in our specialty. Like every year, well-selected distinguished international speakers will participate to the scientific program, which is planned to cover all fields in Plastic Surgery and highlight the innovations in both Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery.

We do hope that all attendants will benefit from this "up dated" rehearsal of what is the state-of-art in contemporary Plastic Surgery, and also enjoy both an outstanding meeting and a very pleasant stay in Thessaloniki.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Hellenic Co-capital by the sea.
