AGES XXV Annual Scientific Meeting
in conjunction with the
ISGE 24th Annual Congress 2015

Controversies and Challenges in Minimally Invasive Surgery – An AGES & ISGE Meeting
4 to 7 March 2015
Crown Melbourne, Australia

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of Australasian Gynaecological
Endoscopy and Surgical Society (AGES) and
the International Society of Gynaecologic
Endoscopy (ISGE) it is our privilege to welcome
our International and Australian colleagues to the
combined AGES XXV Annual Scientific Meeting
in conjunction with ISGE 24th Annual Congress.
We are delighted to co-host such an exciting
meeting in this, our 25th year. AGES has promoted
the education, research and development of
gynaecological endoscopy and surgery for
over 25 years and we are honoured to host a
distinguished faculty to help us celebrate.
We have over 25 international experts who will
be joined by our powerhouse local faculty.
The program will focus on Controversies and
Challenges in Minimally Invasive Surgery and will
consist of a combination of lectures, debates, free
communications and live surgery, telecast from
Monash Health. These sessions have been designed
to stimulate, excite and encourage discussion of
important issues we face on a daily basis.
Both AGES and the ISGE have long been recognised
for their commitment and leadership in minimally
invasive gynaecologic surgery. We hope you will join
us to celebrate the first 25 years of our society with
this exceptional international program in Melbourne.

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the International Society for
Gynecologic Endoscopy (ISGE), it is with great
pleasure and humility that we welcome you to the
24th Annual Congress of the ISGE, held jointly and
in conjunction with XXV Annual Scientific
Meeting of the Australasian Gynaecological
Endoscopy and Surgical Society (AGES). With a
spectacular world class city, Melbourne as the
backdrop, we excitedly await this important
exchange of scientific information as presented by
our Australian, New Zealand, and international
faculty, as we explore the theme of this
extraordinary educational enclave, Controversies
and Challenges in Minimally Invasive Surgery.

We are certain that our ambitious scientific
program will be invaluable to all, as together we
evaluate and explore the controversies and
challenges of minimally invasive surgery – those
faced in the past, current challenges, and those we
may face in the future. It is this keen exploratory
vision as well as the unique collegiality, a hallmark
of our two internationally revered societies, that is
certain to make this more than an international
meeting; rather, an academic experience.

So, once again, welcome one and all. We trust you
will enjoy the fruit of our joint efforts.

Cordially,

Dr Jim Tsaltas
