The International Meeting “Challenges in Endourology” (CIE), now at its 7th Annual Organization, has become a congress of excellence in academic and scientific terms. CIE has now been established as a highly educational scientific meeting offering a program full of innovation, knowledge exchange and valuable networking. During “Challenges in Endourology”, knowledge transfer is delivered through a variety of session types, among which workshops and live surgery sessions stand out for their educational effectiveness. No less important is the opportunity provided to researchers to present their work through e-poster presentations.

This annual meeting was envisaged, planned and set to motion by two leaders in the field of Endurology, Professors Jean de la Rosette of AMC University Hospital in Amsterdam and Olivier Traxer of Hôpitaux Universitaires Est Parisien. They managed to create an event where the best surgeons and doctors from all the fields related to Endourology and the most promising rising stars of their respective sectors meet with colleagues and friends in the congress halls, but also in the state of the art facilities of Hôpital Tenon, Paris.

At the same time, participants get informed on the latest advances of technology by the representatives of the leading industry companies providing them with the most up to date tools for their practice.  The Meeting is addressed to Endourologists, Urologists with an interest in functional urology, Stone experts, Trainees, Students and Nurses.
