It is a great pleasure for us to invite all research interested pediatric surgeons to participate in the 33rd International Symposium on Pediatric Surgical Research, which will take place at the University Hospital of the Goethe-University Frankfurt/M. from 27th–29th November 2020.

The 33rd International Symposium on Pediatric Surgical Research will provide a unique opportunity for young pediatric surgeons and research fellows to present their clinical and laboratory research.

This meeting brings together clinicians and basic scientists from all over the world in order to exchange their knowledge on all aspects of pediatric surgical diseases. Over the years, the International Symposium on Pediatric Surgical Research has become a global research forum for presenting high quality research.

Frankfurt is located right in the middle of Europe and is regarded a small but metropolitan city in Germany. The city is truly multicultural and open to everybody to come. You will find perfect travel conditions and all sorts of accommodation to stay. Furthermore, this vibrant city and its surroundings will give great opportunities to experience nice social events and trips.

We will host the Symposium in the modern facilities of the University Hospital Frankfurt, which is located right to the river Main.

In the name of the whole team, I hope, that the 33rd International Symposium on Pediatric Research will provide a great opportunity for all pediatric surgeons, interested in experimental and clinical research, to exchange knowledge and ideas.

On behalf of the organizing team:
