LETTER OF THE LOCAL HOST

31st EURAPS Annual Meeting

28-30 May 2020, Athens, Greece

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is a great honor and pleasure for us to announce the joint meeting of the 31st Annual Meeting of the European Association of Plastic Surgeons (EURAPS) & the 9th EURAPS Research Council Meeting that will be held between 28th and 30th May 2020 in Athens, Greece.

The end of spring in Attica is the best season to visit Athens! The weather is mild and it invites you to stroll around the city, visiting the archeological sites and the brand new museums and sights, enjoying the gardens, the terraces, and the Greek food with wine and music under the Attican Blue sky; or even to visit the nearby Athenian Riviera. Athens is a city where the ancient meets the modern, and leisure meets culture in never-ending stories.

It is a great honor and privilege to host a Meeting of such a high scientific level with a program of selected top quality papers from all over the world. We are expecting to welcome more than 400 delegates in this unique event in Athens. This is the only meeting where one can meet all the decision makers of our specialty in Europe as well as the young aspirant scientists, and discuss with them the old and new techniques, and interchange new ideas. Consequently, an exceptional opportunity to make new friends around Europe and abroad, while participating in the social program and finally enjoying the city. Therefore we encourage all of you to submit your abstracts for oral presentation.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all in Athens in May 2020!
