This congress will address state-of-the-art multidisciplinary management of colorectal cancer. The optimal method to diagnose and treat this common cancer requires a multimodality approach: perspectives from endoscopy, pathology, surgery, medical oncology, radiation medicine and biomarker assessment. The symposium

sessions will be including life surgeries, hands-on workshop, scientific paper and video presentations.

Apart from a famous Viennese environment during the most beautiful time of the year and a touch of Austrian hospitality, this biannual EFR Conference will prove to be a wonderful opportunity for Colorectal Surgeons from all over the world to get together, learn from each other, and exchange knowledge and experience.

Yours sincerely,


Béla Teleky
