Thank you for your attendance 


and hopefully see you next time in Prague! 



Welcome letter

Dear colleagues,

it is my great pleasure to invite you to the

5th International Video Workshop (IVW) on radical surgery in gynecological oncology
endorsed by the ESGO
that will be held in Prague, April 21–23, 2016

The meeting follows the previous International Video Workshops that were organized in Prague in the past. All events were very successful with close to 400 participants representing 60 European, American, Asian as well as African countries and inspired other national or local meetings which used the same format.

The main aim of the meeting is to focus on manual skills, present new techniques and technology and demonstrate practical tips and recommendations in surgery. A novel format based on video presentations addresses a highly selected audience devoted to advanced surgery in gynecology.

We expect 400 participants to attend. About 20 leading surgeons representing open, laparoscopic and robotic approaches are invited from Japan, Europe and the USA and they will share their knowledge and experience with all of you.

We hope that during the meeting you will also find some time to visit Prague, this beautiful city with lots of historical buildings and monuments and very agreeable atmosphere.

I look forward to seeing you in Prague!

Sincerely Yours,

David Cibula
5th IVW chairman
