On behalf of the organising committee, we are pleased to announce the SELSMA Congress 2020. The biennial congress of the Society of Endoscopic and Laparoscopic Surgeons of Malaysia is back. Our theme for this congress is “MIS: Embracing the Future”. It was especially tailored to focus our attention and efforts into consolidating and shaping the future of MIS in Malaysia. The current status of MIS in our beloved country is promising and there is much work to be done to ensure continuity in the right direction.
From the beautiful state of Penang we now move on to the heart of our nation specifically the Connexion Conference & Event Centre (CCEC); Bangsar South. It is an accessible, vibrant and modern venue that certainly fits the mood, theme and aim of this year’s meeting.
We are indeed excited to bring forward a scientific program packed with exciting and pertaining lectures. The scientific committee led by Dr. Kirubakaran are putting together a very comprehensive program looking into details that will suit every delegate. I truly believe there will be a little bit of something for everyone.
A scientific meeting will not be complete without the contribution of research papers and studies. Hence we welcome all studies and research in the field of endolaparoscopy. I assure you all handsome prizes await top presentations in all categories and a top investigator award that makes its debut in SELSMA 2020.
We are all indeed looking forward to seeing you all at SELSMA 2020; a melting pot for all those passionate about endolaparoscopy.
See You There!
