The 3D Surgical Congress moves online

After careful consideration, the organizing committee has decided that 3D Surgical Congress in Gothenburg will move fully online. Ongoing developments of the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions for running in-person events with a larger number of people left no other alternative. We are now turning our attention to the online conference and to ensuring that the online format allows for high quality program. In case the pandemic situation has changed significantly in spring 2021, we might arrange a complementary physical meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden. Information about this will be posted on this homepage.
