Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am excited and honored to officially invite you to Athens-Greece and the 8th Congress of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders – European Chapter (IFSO-EC), which will be held May 17-19, 2018.
The Local Organizing Committee together with IFSO-EC’s Executive Board and Scientific Committee are putting all their effort into creating an attractive scientific programme that will benefit all professionals visiting our congress from across the world. Our main goal is to provide a platform where established knowledge could be shared and new ideas openly approached.

With a wide range of experts (surgeons, endocrinologists, internists, dieticians, phycologists and many more) active in the field of bariatric and metabolic surgery, we aim to create an opportunity that will bring to every participant unforgettable professional as well as personal experience.

Athens, a vibrant & modern European capital, situated at the foothills of the Acropolis and next to the sea, is a perfect location for international congresses & conventions. Easily accessible from every part of the world, it is considered to be one of the safest cities, providing abundant modern hotel accommodation and great opportunities for sightseeing, excursions and technical visits. Greece has always been at the crossroads of civilizations. This has left not only a rich inheritance of monuments and artifacts of unparalleled beauty, but also the capacity to understand and appreciate the value of this country.

Having a unique natural environment, surrounded by the “deep blue” Aegean Sea, it presents perfect conditions for recreation. May is probably the best season to visit Greece. While there are not too many tourists, the climate is warm enough to allow a visitor to combine business with pleasure in a very welcoming environment.

We envision a robust participation to a Congress of high standards that will provide a memorable occasion for scientific and cultural interface in what has been better known as the traditional “Greek Hospitality”. We are inviting you to experience “Breathtaking Athens” and ensure you that the 8th IFSO-EC Meeting, will leave its mark in IFSO history.

Harry Pappis
President of the IFSO-EC Congress
