Welcome to CiLR 2018!

Dear Colleagues

It is a great pleasure to invite you to Leipzig for the 15th European Meeting on Laparoscopic and Robotic Urologic Surgery – “Challenges in Laparoscopy and Robotics”.

The world’s most renowned surgeons will perform a wide spectrum of the most challenging examples of urological procedures such as prostatectomy, cystectomy with urinary diversion and partial nephrectomy as well as innovative procedures such as robotic assisted kidney transplantation.

The live surgery component will always include 3 procedures being performed in parallel. Every procedure can be followed from start to finish! For the first time the program will be further enriched by semi-live video presentations and discussion of complications of selected procedures.

Furthermore, late breaking news about the latest innovations in robotic surgery and technology will be included in the program and exhibition.

Leipzig is a historical city (more than 1000 years old) with a rich cultural and commercial profile. Major classical music composers have lived and flourished here. The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Saint Thomas boys’ choir are world famous. In addition, major car industries (Porsche and BMW) produce several of their lines in Leipzig.

We are delighted to invite all delegates to our ‘Get Together Dinner’ which will be organized in the extraordinary Porsche exhibition centre.

Clearly, music, action and speed are major characteristics of this city alongside a rich cultural and educational history. This is the perfect city to host “Challenges in Laparoscopy and Robotics” for the second time since 2011.

Welcome to Leipzig!
