The SIU invites you to the World Urology Congress in Berlin
The 31st Congress of the SociÃ©tÃ© Internationale dÂ´ Urologie (SIU) will be, at the same time, their very first annual meeting. With the choice of Berlin, where the Fall of the Wall took place, the SIU has selected an important city of global history and international urology to host the SIU Congress 2011. Prof. Joachim W. ThÃ¼roff, SIU President, is looking forward to welcoming about 5,000 urologists from 122 countries. The world urology congress will take place in the International Congress Centre (ICC) from October 16-20, 2011.
SIU: What makes the SIU Congress in Berlin so unique?
ThÃ¼roff: We feel that the cosmopolitan city of Berlin is the perfect setting to mark this new phase of growth within the SIU. In 1989 the Fall of the Wall brought both political change in Europe and economic globalization. The Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate are symbols for the significant changes in German and European history.
SIU: How do you feel about the scientific program?
ThÃ¼roff: Of course the highlight for all delegates will be the five-day scientific program put together by our chairmen, Gerald H. Jordan and Michael Marberger, with the help of their scientific committee. The program reflects the global and philanthropic character of the SIU referring especially to the development of African urology, urogenital fistula and infections. In addition, on October 15 and 16 there will be an associated meeting of the World Urologic Oncology Federation (WUOF) and an International Consultation on Urologic Diseases (ICUD) on Prostate Cancer with the newest â€œtake home messagesâ€ on Thursday, October 20, 2011. You see, therefore, that the SIU congress is a must for all urologists. ItÂ´s not to be missed!
SIU: Is it, however, a city also capable of offering an appealing social program?
ThÃ¼roff: Yes, absolutely. The renowned Museum Island, located in Berlin, has been listed by UNESCO as part of the World Heritage. Admire with us the bust of Nefertiti in the New Museum, the impressive reconstruction of the Pergamon Altar in the Pergamon Museum or the Bode Museum. Berlin station, formerly known as the Dresdner Bahnhof, will take on an Oktoberfest theme to celebrate the traditional SIU Night. The Gala Banquet will conclude the SIU Congress and will be held at the SchlÃ¼terhof of the German Historic Museum.
