Welcome to BISROS 2014

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it gives me a great pleasure to invite you to take an active part in The 4th Beijing International Symposium and Workshop on Robotic Surgery (BISROS 2014) to be held on 20-22 June 2014 in Beijing, China.

BISROS is a biennial international conference organized by the PLA General Hospital, and co-sponsored by the International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ISMICS), and the Asian Society of Robotic Surgery (ASRS). The conference will be a great opportunity to convene together and to gather our colleagues from all over the world by presenting and demonstrating the latest robotic live surgeries and techniques, and keynote lectures by world leading scientists, professors and experts in cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery, general surgery, gynaecology, hepatology, urology, and surgical oncology. Opportunities for questions, discussion and debates with the chairpersons, speakers, faculty, and fellow colleagues will also be dedicated to each session.

BI — stands for two things here: "Biennial" and "Beijing International", indicating that "This international meeting takes place in Beijing every two years”.

Ros — makes us think of Rock and Roll. ... More >>>
