World Congress of Surgery WCS (formerly organized as International Surgical Week)

The main meeting of BSI is in conjunction with the biennial World Congress of Surgery WCS (formerly International Surgical Week ISW) organized by the International Society of Surgery (ISS/SIC). Regularly some 15-20 International Specialist Societies, amongst which are the six ISS/SIC Collective Member Societies (BSI, IASMEN, IATSIC, IAES, ISDS, ASAP) as well as some National Surgical Societies cover the broad spectrum of surgery during a 4-day scientific program. With the aim to gather surgeons in all stages of their career and from all around the globe, the WCS provides a platform for the mutual exchange of scientific knowledge and new techniques.
