AUGIS will be joining colleagues from BASL, BAPEN and BSG for the first UK Digestive Disorders Federation Conference in Liverpool in 2012 (17-20 June). A number of other GI associations will also be joining us and this conference will replace the annual scientific meetings of the four sponsoring societies.
We anticipate that this will be an enormous success attracting in excess of 4,000 delegates from across Europe and beyond. As this conference replaces the 2012 AUGIS Scientific meeting, the AUGIS Scientific and Programme Committee has agreed with the DDF Programme Committee that all abstracts will be managed centrally. There will be AUGIS abstract markers on every topic subcommittee relevant to our field. However, the eight best AUGIS trainee papers will still compete for our BJS Prize (this year with a bit of a twist for the winner!) and there will be an identifiable AUGIS programme running through the conference with dedicated AUGIS plenary sessions and sessions for each of our sections – BOMSS, GBIHPBA and OG. In addition, there will be an integrated nursing programme running throughout the body of the conference.
Please note that the deadline for abstract submission is January 20, 2012.
