EPSA President Welcome Message:

 On behalf of the EPSA organizing board , I am honored and delighted to welcome you to the 31st Congress of The Egyptian Pediatric Surgical Association – EPSA . We have chosen a venue that guarantees a successful academic meeting and we also will conduct several workshops to meet the expectations of pediatric surgeons. This meeting will also mark the first scientific activity of the Middle East chapter of IPEG, a great accomplishment for our region.
 There will be 5 workshops and a tutorial pro-gram followed by a three days academic congress. We will provide technical demonstrations and numerous opportunities for informal networking. Ultimately The success of any meeting depends not only on how many people who have worked in planning but also on how many will find it useful to attend and participate in it. We hope that you will enjoy the congress and spend a nice time in our beautiful city; Cairo.
President of EPSA Prof. Gamal El Tagy

IPEG Middle East Chapter Welcome Message:

 The International Pediatric Endosurgery Group (IPEG) is a truly international society where pediatric surgeons from all over the world meet to share knowledge and experience in minimally invasive surgery in children. Over the last three years, we have been working with IPEG leaders to introduce the society in the region. Our aim was to provide a means for pediatric surgeons in the Middle East to share their experience, knowledge and insight and to shine on an international scale. I personally know many great minds that only need tools and support to present what they have to the world, and it was clear to me that having an IPEG chapter in the region is the best way to achieve these goals.
 The Egyptian Pediatric Surgical Association (EPSA) has been the icon of the societies in the region and having our 1st Annual Meeting of the Chapter with EPSA will add value to both societies. It is my pleasure to invite you for our annual meeting that is held concomiantly with EPSA meeting on November 30 – December 2, 2016 in Conrad Hotel, Cairo, Egypt. I am confident that you will enjoy the state-of-the-art workshops and scientific sessions. I would like to thank all colleagues in the Chapter, the board members and the EPSA board members who are contributing to the success of this work. A great thanks to our IPEG leaders and executive director for their great support, and finally, no success would have been possible without the great members of IPEG-ME and EPSA.
President of IPEG, ME Prof. Aayed Alqahtani
