On behalf of the organising committee of SERGS 2013, we cordially invite you to join us in London for what will be the most important gynae robotic meeting in 2013, and promises to be the largest robotic gynaecology conference ever to be held. For the first time, the major gynae robotic forums of SERGS and BIARGS will collaborate on a single international summit to help promote the latest research and ideas in our rapidly expanding field. The support of our Platinum sponsor, Intuitive Surgical, has kindly made such an event possible.
We are very excited to announce that the venue is The Royal Geographical Society, an historical landmark on the Southern edge of Hyde Park in Central London that is close to the major museums, shopping and tourist attractions. Since the nineteenth century it has been regarded as the hub of British exploration and many famous British expeditions to the Poles, Himalayas and Africa were planned and executed from this Learned Society. Household names like Livingstone, Hilary, Shackleton, Burton and Speke were all Fellows here. It remains an important active organization that is a centre for worldwide geographical and environmental scientific research and a wonderful location for our meeting.
As well as a comprehensive educational programme and social programme we are planning an array of social activities in the daytime for families who may be travelling from the US, Europe or further afield to encourage you to make it a holiday. We particularly wish to welcome delegates from other continents outside of the US and Europe to come and share their robotic experience.
So whether or not you are an old hand at SERGS or BIARGS, travelling from far-flung places, or have a new interest in robotic surgery, then we welcome you to join us in London in June 2013.
Mr Thomas Ind BIARGS, Dr Jan Persson SERGS
