Montreal, Quebec, Canada

October 14-16, 2011

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to invite you to attend a unique educational event, the first of its kind, on the latest advances and up-to-date techniques in both advanced laparoscopic as well as robotic surgery for gynecological cancers. This collaborative venture between the European Society of Gynaecologic Endoscopy, the Society of Gynecologic Oncology of Canada and the McGill Gynecologic Oncology Team, will be held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, from October 14 to 16, 2011. The Continuing Health Professional Education (CHPE) has approved the course for up to 20 CME study credits: RCPSC:MOC section 1, AMA PRA category 1.

The program includes scientific symposia and the live broadcast of surgical sessions. Delegates will have the opportunity to witness surgeries for a variety of gynecological cancers, using robotic or non-robotic approaches, performed side by side, and will be able to personally interact and learn from world-class surgeons. To ensure easy communication between participants and surgeons, we will limit attendance to 250 delegates.

In addition to its educational value, this conference will provide you with the opportunity to enjoy Montreal, the “City of Festivals,” listed in Traveler Magazine's Acclaimed Places of a Lifetime series and the National Geographic's Ultimate City list.

You will find attached a registration form along with a list of proposed hotels and useful weblinks about the city. Please register as soon as possible to ensure your participation in this unique opportunity and to benefit from the early registration fee.

We look forward to welcoming you to Montreal

Best regards

Dr Denis Querleu, for the Presidents

Dr Lucy Gilbert, Chair, Organizing Committee
