Invitation Letter

We have the pleasure to announce the 13th International Bernd Spiessl-Symposium new in collaboration with the Swiss-Korean Life Science Community.

Under the Theme “Innovation meets Art” there will be a focus on face and identity as every year as well as the next generation of surgery. Raising new fields at the interface between Life Sciences and MedTech will be given a platform to nurture interdisciplinary collaboration between medical doctors, scientists, engineers, start-ups and the private industry.

Innovative and visionary technologies in Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery will be presented from Thursday, 15 June to Saturday, 17 June 2017 at the University Hospital Basel, Zentrum für Lehre und Forschung (ZLF), Hebelstrasse 20, Basel, Switzerland.

There is a saying: Art leads to scientific and medical innovation – science and medicine inspire art. This is the spirit of the conference. Art performances and music improvisation will be an integrative part of the conference.

On Wednesday, 14 June 2017 before the opening of the scientific symposium and the industrial exhibition, we offer again special workshops in cooperation with the industry.

Traditionally, our cultural program starts on Thursday evening with an aperitif and a Swiss vernissage. The next evening we invite you to our favorite Gala Dinner at the Wildt’sche Haus. On Saturday, we start our cultural racer, the guided tour through the Art Basel 2017. The congress programme ends, as every year, with our traditional Garden Party.

 

We are looking forward to meeting you at our exciting scientific event.

Your Innovation and Art Team
