I am delighted to invite you to the Düsseldorf International Endoscopy Symposium. Since
our first meeting it has been our goal to highlight latest developments in endoscopic imaging and
minimally invasive approaches to gastrointestinal and biliopancreatic diseases. With our varied
program of lectures, discussions and live video presentations by experts from different schools
we believe to have created an ideal professional learning atmosphere. The increasing attendance
and very positive results of a detailed evaluation of the previous symposia prove that we were
successful in doing so. The faculty, our team, the congress organization, LUX AV and myself are
pleased to welcome you. We wish you an interesting and enjoyable stay in Düsseldorf.


Prof. Dr. Horst Neuhaus
