What to Expect at EAU17: A Sneak Peek at the Scientific Programme

The members of the EAU Scientific Congress Office (SCO) represent various urological sub-specialties. They are distinguished experts in Europe who deliberate on the key and controversial issues in urology. The SCO also examines prospects that will shape current management strategies. Their evaluations and discussions culminate into the comprehensive Scientific Programme of the always anticipated EAU Annual Congress.


The EAU17 Scientific Congress Office Members

The 32nd Annual EAU Congress in London (EAU17) will have seven Plenary Sessions in contrast to previous years. The topics will include andrology, management of prostate cancer, stones, functional urology, and BPH to name a few. Each morning will be dedicated to two simultaneous Plenary Sessions. In addition, there will be 18 Thematic Sessions categorised according to core issues and challenges in urology. The SCO will also introduce innovative sessions which will combine video and poster abstract presentations for selected topics such as erectile dysfunction, bladder cancer, and many others.

EAU17 attendees can again look forward to many intensive ESU and Hands-On Training courses; and special programmes such as the Urology Beyond Europe sessions on Friday which will bring urologists from all over the world together.

Friday, the first congress day, will begin with abstract sessions and will conclude with the Opening Ceremony, wherein the most prestigious EAU awards will be handed out. On Saturday, the second congress day, the always popular EAU Section Meetings will be in the programme. Moreover, there will be a special training-based session YUORDay17 organised by the EAU Young Urologists Office & European Society of Residents in Urology. Aside from the official EAU Scientific Programme, there will be numerous industry sessions at the end of each congress day.

More details on the Scientific Programme will be available shortly. Specific sessions and speakers are currently finalised. Please visit the EAU17 webpage regularly for updates and do not miss the abstract submission deadline of 1 November 2016!
