Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Covid-19 has been a dramatic experience for all of us and we are still struggling to return to a normal situation. Worldwide vaccination is probably the right thing to do but until that time we have to do our best, with the right security measures, to go back to normality.With this spirit, we have decided to organize the 18th edition of Challenges in Laparoscopy and Robotics in presence! The city we have chosen for CILR 2022, June 8-9-10, is Milan, the economic capital of Italy and, together with our friends, we are organizing a special edition with the most modern facilities that are available.
Our first aim will be safety, therefore ,only delegates with a Green Pass or a certificate of vaccination will be allowed to enter the congress center. Every delegate must have a recent PCR molecular test. Only 50% of the seats can be occupied and we will have a Hub in the congress center where we will be able to process a molecular Covid test in all the cases needed.
Since 2004 Challenges in Laparoscopy and Robotics is the European meeting where, year after year, the new procedures and the new technologies have been presented. We look forward toa very special event in a unique city where cutting edge new technology, innovation, surgical expertise and social friendship will all convene to create a unique event!
