regarding the virtual symposium

The global COVID-19 pandemic has occupied all our energy over the past few months and continue to do so until the end of the year and beyond. Due to the increasing restrictions and travel limitations, we have decided to change the 33rd International Symposium on Pediatric Surgical Research to a live online format for the safety and well-being of participants.

Despite the new format, the meeting will provide a unique opportunity for clinicians and basic scientists from all over the world to present their clinical and laboratory research, hereby exchanging their knowledge on various aspects of pediatric surgical diseases.

The final scientific program, guidelines for presenting authors as well as more information regarding the registration process and fee for the virtual conference will be posted soon on the conference website.

Authors of accepted abstracts are invited to submit their full-length manuscripts for consideration of publication in Pediatric Surgery International by November 22, 2020. All papers must be submitted to florian.friedmacher@kgu.de.

The Scientific Committee will decide on the basis of originality and scientific merit, which manuscripts will be accepted for publication in the congress issue. Presentation of your paper is not a guarantee of acceptance for publication. Instructions for authors can be found here.

We appreciate your support and the time and effort that went into the preparation of your abstract and looking forward to your presentation.
