SGI 2017 The 11th Annual Meeting of Society of Gastrointestinal Intervention


Greetings & Invitation to SGI 2017

Dear friends and colleagues,

It is a great pleasure for us to welcome you to the 11th annual meeting of SGI which will be held in Grand Hyatt Incheon Hotel on September 8-9, 2017.

Since the SGI took its first step in 2007, SGI has played an important role as the unique society of multidisciplinary communication among radiologists, endoscopists and surgeons. We celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2016 and we would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt thanks to all SGI members for their sincere and positive contribution and activities for 10 years. Now we believe it is time for SGI to take a leap forward.

The scientific program of SGI 2017 will have lectures dealing with interesting and latest trends on stents and debate about the treatment methods used in the field of gastroenterology, interventional radiology, and surgery. Live demonstration sessions and consensus workshop about GI tract will be also provided as previous meeting. The SGI Edelweiss Scholarship Program will give a good opportunity for young doctors from developing countries having an exchange of information and experience new technology so we would like to encourage you to submit your abstracts for potential oral or poster presentations.

We moved the venue of SGI 2017 to the Grand Hyatt Incheon Hotel which is close to the Incheon International Airport for the convenience of international participants. A coast city, Incheon has many tourist attractions and you can make your stay as memorable and enjoyable as possible by providing you with an opportunity to have a first-hand observation of Korea, with its long historical tradition of 5,000 years.

Eagerly anticipating your continued cooperation for your active participation in the SGI 2017, we look forward to seeing you in September in Incheon.

May peace and happiness be yours in the New Year!

Sincerely yours,

DongKi Lee, Young Deok Cho, Hyun-Ki Yoon
