8th Alice and Albert Netter Days 
European Society of Gynecology

20 October - 22 October 2016

Wrocław Wrocław University & Wrocław Congress Center

Dear Colleagues,

we have been graced by the European Society of Gynecology with the organization of the 8th Alice and Albert Netter Days in Wrocław on 20th-22nd October 2014, thus commemorating an important researcher – both for the Society and gynecology itself – and a wonderful doctor. The Polish Gynecological Society, the Polish Society of Endocrinology and the Polish Society of Gynecological Endocrinology have the distinction to co-organize this event in partnership with the European Society of Gynecology. We are indescribably pleased that the meeting takes place in Wrocław – the city that has been chosen as the European Capital of Culture for 2016. Wrocław is frequently depicted as “Venice of the North” due to the fact it is characterized by more than 100 bridges and numerous canals, unusual volume of green areas, beautiful historic buildings and thousands of faces lit up with smiles. Those are extremely easy to find among students of the University of Wrocław, formerly known as Leopoldina, which has been providing education to young people for over 300 years. The list of its most notable employees features several Nobel Prize winners. The University will make the gorgeous Aula Leopoldina available for the concert of some of the most talented Polish musicians, which is not the only surprise we are preparing for you. In May of the current year, we hosted the 16th European Congress of Endocrinology, which encouraged as many as 2500 delegates from 62 countries to visit Wrocław. The event can be regarded as a huge success, both in terms of scientific and organizational aspects. Its participants departed from Wrocław with the strong will to return to this extraordinary place, where European cultures have been mixed for a couple of centuries. The aim of our meeting in Wrocław is the close integration of all European circles of gynecologists and endocrinologists. The scientific program is being guided mainly on the practical aspects of the problems encountered everyday by gynecologists and obstetricians. However, it shall also feature medical novelties, fruitful debates, meet the expert sessions. There shall also be time for interdisciplinary sessions (for instance “thyroid gland in pregnancy” or “diabetes in pregnancy”) and the laparoscopic and ultrasonography workshops, presenting the newest techniques. You are very welcome to submit a poster for the poster session. We also invite you to send abstracts. If you are interested in participating

in the meeting please contact organizers on the e-mail address: or mobile +48 501 935 498

 We strongly believe that you will not regret making the decision to participate in this remarkable scientific meeting. It would be our greatest honour to host you in Wrocław!



See you!!!
