ILTS ELTA LICAGE Berlin 2001
this electric atmosphere of challenge and renewal, we are
organizing the first ILTS congress of the 21st century.
Symposia, plenary sessions, state-of-the-art lectures and
chaired poster sessions will emphasize the necessity of
multidisciplinary research and cooperation in the field
of liver transplantation. This congress has been
organized with the collaboration of the Liver Intensive
Care Group of Europe (LICAGE) and the European Liver
Transplant Association (ELTA).
The Presidents, Councils and members of the ILTS, ELTA and LICAGE wish to invite you to Berlin in July 2001 for the Seventh Congress of the ILTS, jointly sponsored with the ELTA and LICAGE societies. This truly international undertaking brings together the perspectives and expertise of three prominent organizations dealing with liver transplantation.
The local Berlin organizing Committee, under the direction of program chair Peter Neuhaus (ILTS) and the Presidents of ELTA and LICAGE, have put together an outstanding multidisciplinary program. The broad range of topics probes the vexing issues in liver transplantation today. there will be an enriching social program as well.
Berlin is a remarkable city that has been transformed since the fall of the Wall. Cultural life is blossoming in former east Berlin. The restoration of museums, the return of a Jewish community, colorful refurbishment of neighborhoods, the growth of a vibrant social/night life and an excellent selection of restaurants and lodging are all evidence for this metamorphosis. Business construction there is unparalleled elsewhere in Europe. And the west remains with its world class Philharmonic Orchestra, ballet, opera, shopping district (Kurfuerstendamm) and museums. While evidence of the Wall itself has largely disappeared, the environs of the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag have been restored to resemble the Berlin Mitte of the turn of the last century.
We hope that you will plan now to attend and we look forward to seeing you there.
Peter Neuhaus, MD
