Dr Fabian Emura, Chair of the ENDO 2020 scientific committee, is currently working together with representatives from many renowned societies to further develop the sessions that will bring a wealth of international expertise to the 2nd World Congress of GI Endoscopy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Debates and discussions, enriched by diverse and very often opposing perspectives from around the world, will be a highlight. Members of the ENDO 2020 Scientific Committee will get together again next October in Vienna to fine tune the program.

WEO, together with co-host SOBED and collaborating partner SIED are very grateful to receive the support and expert advice from following scientific partner societies: Asian Institute of Gastroenterology, the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), the Asia-Pacific Society of Digestive Endoscopy, the Chinese Society of Digestive Endoscopology, the Chinese Society of Gastroenterology, the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE), the Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society (JGES) and the Korean Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (KSGE).

The ENDO 2020 organizing committee members are looking forward to keep you up to date on developments of the congress with a special ENDO 2020 news that will be shared on a regular basis.
