Kultur & Kongresshaus AARAU

«New challenges in perinatal medicine»




Dear Colleagues and Friends,

New diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities in perinatal medicine pose new challenges for obstetricians and neonatologists. Daily business has become more complex and highly sophisticated. Therefore, it is time to get together and examine some of these developments in more detail.

We are pleased to welcome you to the 2019 Annual Conference of the Swiss Society of Neonatology (SSN) in Aarau, which will be held together with the Academy for Fetal and Maternal Medicine (AFMM) of the Swiss Society of Gynecology and Obstetrics. As a perinatal team, we face these new challenges and discuss them with experts in the field.

It has become a tradition of this conference that young Swiss neonatologists and pediatricians, as well as obstetricians, will have the opportunity to present their research projects as short oral presentations or during a poster walk.

We invite you to be part of this meeting, meet each other and spend an interesting day in Aarau.

Please be sure to submit your abstract prio to October 31, 2018 and indicate your preferred mode of presentation (oral or poster).

17th Annual Meeting of the Swiss Transplantation Society

Thun, Congress Hotel Seepark

«January 24 - 25, 2019»

«Thun, Switzerland»

Dear Colleagues and guests,

On behalf of the Swiss Transplantation Society and the scientific committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 17th annual congress of the STS at the Congress Hotel Seepark in Thun.

We must congratulate once again the scientific Committee directed by Hendrik Tevaearai for the interesting program, which reflects the actuality in transplantation. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Istanbul declaration is the opportunity for us to discover the extent and the consequence of the problem in Europe and in Switzerland. Donation after circulatory determination of death (DCD) has a significant potential for solving the problems of the waiting list (27% of deceased donors in 2017) but the implementation of such a program in a hospital is not straightforward. A round table will try to give clues with involved specialists. These efforts must not obscure the other efforts represented by the initiative from the "Jeune Chambre Internationale" aiming to change the law and the successful introduction of the donor registry by Swisstransplant.

The initiative to share a common session with coordinators last year was well received. The coordinators corner will discuss with specialists another pertinent topic paralleling the ongoing organisation of a Swiss National Kidney Pair Donation Program: where are we know and what are the obstacles?

During the STS meeting, we have the opportunity to honour distinguished figures and pioneers in transplantation and we will pay a final respect to Prof. Felix Largiader who passed away in 2018. We are proud to present the scientific activity and the research in transplantation in Switzerland by prominent colleagues. Once again the six best rated paper published in 2018 will receive STS awards and the STS Excellence Award 2018 will be presented.

For the first time we decided to introduce a post-graduate meeting the day before the STS meeting so that fellows training in transplantation can meet some main actors of transplantation in Switzerland, while collecting continuing education points. They can also participate to the STS meeting but this avoids creating a gap in clinical continuity. We hope that this will be a welcome initiative.

I look forward to meeting you in Thun and wish fruitful multidisciplinary and interprofessional discussions and friendship.

Maurice Matter

President of STS

7th Swiss Microbial Ecology Meeting SME 2019

30.01.2019 08:00 - 01.02.2019 18:00

Aquatis Conference Center, Lausanne, Switzerland



 Dear colleagues,

I would like to invite you to the next Swiss Microbial Ecology meeting SME 2019 that will be organized end of January 2019 in Lausanne, Switzerland.

It is now well recognized that the microbial world is full of biodiversity with microbes that have metabolic features and live styles that surprise us again and again. A similar diversity can be found in Switzerland with regard to research on the ecology of these microorganisms. The scientific committee composed of researchers working at EPFL reflects that perfectly well since their research topics go from bacterial response to environmental mechanics, over the ecology of viruses, stream biofilms, contaminated sites and wastewater treatment systems, the pathoecology of Vibrio cholera to geomicrobiology. The invited speakers that have accepted our invitation will make this an exciting event. However, only your participation with oral and poster presentation will make it a real success.

The meeting venue is the Aquatis Conference Center where there is also the largest freshwater aquarium-vivarium in Europe. An exclusive visit for SME2019 participants will allow to appreciate also this visible biodiversity in otherwise difficult to observe ecosystems.

I hope to welcome you beginning of next year in Lausanne,

Christof Holliger

Submissions are closed.

Chers collègues,

Pour ce deuxième colloque de 2019 centré sur l’échographie nous avons envie de vous ouvrir les portes de l’échographie 3D grâce à la présence du Dr Jean-Philippe Bault, auteur de nombreux ouvrages indispensables en échographie et en particulier en échographie tridimensionnelle.

Il nous parlera de la face fœtale, et de son évaluation en échographie 2D et 3D. La découverte d’une anomalie de la face est un traumatisme pour les parents et nous avons donc demandé à notre chirurgien pédiatre spécialiste de ces interventions, le Dr Anthony De Buys, de vous donner quelques clés pour accompagner ces parents dans leur histoire.

Il y a des organes que l’on a tendance à oublier lors de notre examen et qui ont une importance dans l’appréciation de la normalité du fœtus, bien qu’ils ne soient pas inscrits dans la routine du dépistage. La Dre Cécile Guenot vous les fera découvrir.

Le Dr Jean-Philippe Bault clôturera cet après-midi par l’imagerie au premier trimestre et l’apport signifi catif du 3D à cette période.

Nous nous réjouissons de partager cet après-midi avec vous

Dre C. Guenot                         Prof. Y. Vial                          Prof. P. Mathevet

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen
Liebe Freunde des Women’s Health-Kongresses,

Wir laden Sie herzlich zum nun bereits 15. Women’s Health-Kongress ein, den wir zum zweiten Mal in Bern organisieren dürfen. Der Women’s Health-Kongress umfasst unter seinem Dach die Jahresversammlungen der Schweizerischen Gesellschaft für Reproduktionsmedizin (SGRM) und ihren Kommissionen sowie der Schweizerischen Menopausengesellschaft (SMG). Entsprechend weit werden wir den Bogen spannen von der Reproduktionsmedizin über die Endokrinologie bis hin zur Menopausenmedizin.

Bei der Reproduktionsmedizin stellt sich die Frage, in wie weit die Revision des Fortpflanzungsmedizingesetzes und die technischen Neuerungen unseren klinischen Alltag ändern. Bei der Endokrinologie stehen die sich inzwischen häufenden Probleme der Frühaborte und der bariatrischen Chirurgie im Vordergrind. Und bei der Menopausenmedizin geht es nicht nur darum, möglichst lange zu leben, sondern dies auch noch mit guter Lebensqualität.

Chers Amis, chers collègues,

Pour ce premier colloque de l'année 2019, nous avons le plaisir d'accueillir plusieurs experts, nationaux et internationaux, venus nous parler d'obésité et grossesse.

Selon l'OMS, l'obésité a atteint les proportions d'une épidémie mondiale, 2,8 millions de personnes au moins décédant chaque année du fait de leur surpoids ou de leur obésité. L'épidémie d'obésité concerne aussi les femmes en âge de procréer. Le déroulement de la grossesse, le développement fœtal, l'état de santé du nouveau-né et son devenir pondéral et métabolique dépendent de l'équilibre nutritionnel maternel avant et pendant la grossesse.

Nous espérons vous y rencontrer nombreuses et nombreux.

Prof. D. Baud               Dr H. Legardeur               Prof. P. Mathevet
