Honorary President

Dear Colleagues,


As of May 21, Vienna’s hotels, restaurants and event locations have finally reopened. Entry regulations have also been eased, so a safe trip to Vienna is possible again.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in person in Vienna for our first hybrid ISAPS World Congress.

We have come up with many new program initiatives to make this premiere really attractive:
In addition to a top-class program featuring the best speakers in the world and the latest topics, the event will have parallel live operations on pre-operated complication cases. Watch as the masters of our profession plan and operate on these difficult cases during our SOS program. Of course, you can also enjoy the reunion of the many friends and colleagues who are yearning to talk and meet with one another again.

Vienna offers a wonderful atmosphere, having been named the most livable city in the world with its many cafés, restaurants and beer gardens. Plan to spend a bit more time in beautiful Vienna! You will not only support ISAPS with your visit, but also benefit from first-hand and first-class education.

I am looking forward to seeing you and to our first reunion after such a long time!

All the best,
