25th United European Gastroenterology (UEG) Week Barcelona 2017

October 28 - November 1

UEG Week is now one of the world’s largest gastroenterology and hepatology meetings, attracting up to 13,000 participants from 116 countries. Leading scientists and clinicians come together to discuss the latest advances in our field, from new digestive health research to developments in clinical practice. UEG Week is undoubtedly the best place for clinicians and scientists to present their research in this field.

Every year, a world-class, innovative and interactive programme is carefully created by the UEG Scientific Committee and there are many highlights to look forward to in 2017. These include the highly regarded ‘Today’s Science, Tomorrow’s Medicine’ lecture series, which will have a particular focus on Host Microbiota Crosstalk in 2017. This lecture series continues to implement the vital dialogue between basic scientists and clinicians and helps facilitate the development of novel therapies and technologies in clinical medicine.

We, at UEG, are very much looking forward to intensive days of scientific advances and updates from the world’s leading digestive health experts. One of my personal highlights are the UEG ‘Hotspot’ sessions, where attendees can expect intriguing discussions and debates on the most exciting areas within our field. This includes the ‘Abstracts on FIRE’ series, where UEG Week’s leading abstracts are examined, explored and clinically reviewed by experts.

UEG is dedicated to providing young clinicians with a first-class congress experience and we are eager to deliver a platform to link people within the global GI community. The congress will deliver captivating post-graduate teaching sessions, providing attendees with state-of-the-art developments in the field.

As always, we look forward to rewarding the finest work in our field with a range of thoroughly-deserved awards.

With the first UEG Week taking place in Athens in 1992, this year marks the 25th anniversary for the congress.

We welcome you to join us in celebrating this special 25th UEG Week in Barcelona.

Submit your abstract by April 27, 2017 (eligible for UEG Week Awards)
