Invitation

Dear Friends,

The Asian EUS Group(AEG) was formed in 2012 with the aim of education and research focused on EUS. It has members from 18 Asian Countries and in a short span of time, has emerged as a major vehicle for creating awareness about appropriate utilization of EUS in Asia. The AEG conducts more than 30 workshops every year for training young endoscopists . The first Asian EUS Congress was held in 2015 in Seoul and was a grand success with about 400 delegates from across Asia attending the event.

We extend a warm invitation to all interested endoscopists across the World to attend the 2nd Asian EUS Congress (AEC 2017) to be held in Mumbai on September 7-9,2017. EUS has emerged as an invaluable modality for diagnosis and treatment of various GI and pancreatico-biliary disorders, and the indications are rapidly expanding. Newer technology innovations are taking place at a rapid pace, and it is imperative for a modern endoscopist to keep abreast with the latest advances. AEC 2017 will provide cutting edge information about the appropriate utilization and ongoing research in EUS. There will be a Live Workshop to show basic and interventional procedures, and a hands-on course for basic and interventional EUS. As always the focus of the conference is on young endoscopists, and they will have opportunity to present their research and videos in the Congress.

We are fortunate to have a Galaxy of experts from around the World as faculty. These experts are at the forefront of EUS technology and evolution and will provide us with the best evidence and technical advice.

Mumbai is the financial capital of India, and is beautiful post monsoon. There are many attractions in and around Mumbai for you to explore before or after the conference.

We are all waiting for you in Mumbai!!!!
