12th Congress of the European Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (ESPRAS) 2014 Edinburgh

  • Conference Call
  • The 12th Con­gress of the Euro­pean Soci­ety of Plas­tic, Recon­struc­tive and Aes­thetic Surgery will be held at the Edin­burgh Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence Cen­tre in Edin­burgh, Scot­land, United King­dom on July 6 – 11, 2014.

    The British Asso­ci­a­tion of Plas­tic, Recon­struc­tive and Aes­thetic Sur­geons (BAPRAS) is delighted and hon­oured to host the 12th Qua­dren­nial Euro­pean Meet­ing of ESPRAS in 2014, when we look for­ward to bring­ing you to the gath­er­ing of our clans, as they would say in Scot­land. The Con­gress will give us the oppor­tu­nity to wel­come you to the cen­tre of Edin­burgh, to a full sci­en­tific pro­gramme with work­shops, emi­nent guest speak­ers, and spe­cial ses­sions for nurses. We hope you will join us in shar­ing devel­op­ments in our spe­cialty, your spe­cialised knowl­edge and your sur­gi­cal skills.

    As well as offer­ing a care­fully devel­oped sci­en­tific pro­gramme of ‘cut­ting edge’ sub­jects to improve the care of those we care for, we want to work together with you to strengthen our spe­cialty to face the social, medico-​political and eco­nomic chal­lenges to plas­tic surgery in each of our coun­tries, and through­out the ESPRAS com­mu­nity. There is great scope for us to join together and share novel ideas and organ­i­sa­tion in our efforts to develop the high­est stan­dard of plas­tic sur­gi­cal care through­out Europe.

    Con­fer­ence Tracks

    Sur­gi­cal Skills Masterclasses

    ESPRAS 2014 will offer an oppor­tu­nity for del­e­gates to get involved with a series of Sur­gi­cal Skills Mas­ter­classes that will take place in the superb facil­i­ties of the Royal Col­lege of Sur­geons of Edinburgh.

    This part of the pro­gramme will be held over 5 days (Monday-​Friday) and will have the oppor­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate at two levels:

    Mas­ter­class Pro­s­ec­tion ses­sions, which should appeal to both trainees and more senior del­e­gates, will be filmed and trans­mit­ted live to a nearby lec­ture room in the RCSEd. The com­bined video and audio link will allow tech­nique dis­cus­sion dur­ing pro­ceed­ings and give the del­e­gates the oppor­tu­nity to observe a true “Mas­ter at Work”.

    Dis­sec­tion ses­sions with tutors will be aimed at del­e­gates who wish to enhance their recon­struc­tive skills. These ses­sions will accom­mo­date approx­i­mately 24 del­e­gates and cover a wide range of top­ics such as Lower Limb, Head and Neck Recon­struc­tion, Hand, Aes­thet­ics, Breast and Abdom­i­nal Wall Reconstructions.

    Nurses Programme

    The Nurses pro­gramme is a spe­cific set of ses­sions for plas­tic surgery nurses cov­er­ing prac­ti­cal aspects of nurses’ work, which will be pre­sented by pro­fes­sion­als from around the world on a range of sub­spe­cial­ist topics.

    Late Break­ing Abstract Submission

    It is rec­om­mended that the fol­low­ing head­ings are used when sub­mit­ting abstracts:

    • Intro­duc­tion and Aims
    • Mate­r­ial and Methods
    • Results
    • Conclusion(s)

    To increase the like­li­hood of accep­tance the abstract should cap­ture the inter­est of the review­ers, be suc­cinct, have a clear mes­sage and avoid phrases such as “pre­lim­i­nary results” or “results will be pre­sented”. In con­sid­er­ing which papers to accept for pre­sen­ta­tion at the con­gress, the Sci­en­tific Com­mit­tee favours orig­i­nal work which has not already been pub­lished. Pref­er­ence will be given to abstracts that con­tain details of the aims and objec­tives, the mate­ri­als and meth­ods used, the key results, the con­clu­sion and clin­i­cal appli­ca­tion of the study.

    E-​Poster Submission

    Elec­tronic posters (ePosters) are short Pow­er­Point pre­sen­ta­tions or PDF files that sum­ma­rize your work fol­low­ing the same prin­ci­ples as a paper poster. You have to pre­pare an ePoster and upload it through the Inter­net on a cen­tral server before the start of the con­fer­ence. Your poster will then be avail­able for view­ing on ded­i­cated com­puter ter­mi­nals (the ePoster area will be in the exhi­bi­tion area, the Lennox Suite) from Mon­day 7th – Thurs­day 10th July inclusively.

    Dur­ing this time, con­fer­ence atten­dees will be able to vote on your work. After the con­gress, your ePoster will also be avail­able for view­ing on the ESPRAS 2014 website.

    The dead­line for the ePoster upload is Sun­day 15th June 2014.

    To upload your ePoster suc­cess­fully, please read the guide­lines for ePosters here.
