Winter Symposium 2016 - 31st edition

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the scientific committee, we welcome you to the 31st International Winter Symposium on Anesthesia and Perioperative Care in Trauma, which will be held in Leuven, Belgium, February 4-6th 2016.

The early registration statistics promise to make this meeting an extraordinary event, both from the point of attendance as well as program delivery by luminaries and leaders in this field. We are very proud to announce that some of the best trauma specialists have confirmed their attendance and will deliver state of the art lectures on various aspects of Trauma Care in Anesthesia. Additionally, there will be several hands-on workshops, which will help advance new clinical skills.

We are convinced that our program and social event taking place in the center of the splendid town of Leuven on Thursday will add up to a memorable continuous medical education. There will be great opportunities to interact with some of the most prominent experts in the field of anesthesiology and foster long-lasting friendships and collaborations.

We look forward to seeing you in Leuven.

Yours Sincerely,

Veerle De Sloovere
