Welcome Message

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am delighted to invite you to the 5th Beijing International Symposium and Workshop on Robotic Surgery (BISROS 2016) which will be held at the PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China on June 2016. BISROS 2016 is organized by the PLA General Hospital and co-sponsored by the International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ISMICS), the Asian Society of Robotic Surgery (ASRS), and Innovations (Chinese Edition).

As a biennial international conference, BISROS has been successfully held for four times in the PLA General Hospital since 2008, which is now becoming one of the most important conferences in the field of minimally invasive robotic surgery in Asia and all over the world. The PLA General Hospital takes the lead on the national development of minimally invasive robotic surgery and has completed over 4200 cases of robotic surgery, among which about 800 cases are robotic cardiac surgery. The organizing committees are committed to expanding and strengthening the influence of minimally invasive robotic surgery in the world and provide a great opportunity for high-level interdisciplinary exchange to world leading professors and experts to share and explore the timely and emerging hot topics on robotic surgeries techniques in cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery, general surgery, gynaecology, urology, and surgical oncology. The scientific program in BISROS 2016 will include plenary sessions, keynote lectures and planned robotic live surgeries and we would like to cordially invite you to present your latest work or technique in the meeting.

We expect an exciting and impressive experience with you in BISROS 2016 and welcome your attendance in Beijing.

Sincerely yours,

Changqing Gao, MD
