Antonio Frega, Philip Davies and I, Cesare Gentili, are pleased to announce the XII Workshop of Lower Genital Tract Pathology which will be held in Rome from March 5th to 7th 2015.
These Workshops have a unique multidisciplinary nature covering all disciplines related to diseases of the lower genital tract.
The last Workshop was attended by over 500 participants from 39 countries and with 55 speakers of international renown who maintained the participants’ interest for the entire congress by delivering a challenging and comprehensive program. We have no doubt that the upcoming congress will be an even bigger success.
For 2015, we have made some changes to the program by introducing some innovative elements in order to make it a more dynamic workshop while still keeping a sharp focus on the new issues that are of interest to clinicians and of scientific validity.
More time will be allowed for debates, particularly in the specialized sessions on topics of interest in daily practice. There will be four interactive sessions, two for gynaecologists and two for pathologists, that will be based on clinical cases with presentations using slides and videos. In each specialisation, one session will be led by the speakers and the other by the participants who will present previously selected cases. And there will be the new Twitter style Sessions, an effective way to summarize the salient points of the day.
After the success of the “Free Communications” in the previous Workshop, we have decided to repeat it this year too. Prizes will be given to the best three communications during the plenary session. Moreover, the participants will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite speaker and prizes will be given to the best three.
The multidisciplinary nature of the Workshop will allow experts from different fields to follow the topics of common interest in the plenary session as well as having the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in their own specialist areas. The program will have a logical progression without duplications or overlap.
As in the previous Workshop, the XII edition will have lectures covering the latest issues in cervical cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment, and it will have the most highly respected researchers and clinicians from Italy and the rest of the world.
Although the congress has an international character, the atmosphere is informal and simple, and you can spend some pleasant days in Rome with us enjoying the typical dishes of the evocative Roman restaurants.
We now look forward to welcoming you to the XII Workshop of Lower Genital Tract Pathology in Rome next year.
With our best regards,
The Course Coordinators
