International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association
The IHPBA World Congress offers a significant opportunity to gain professional experience and knowledge in the Hepato Pancreato Biliary field. A comprehensive scientific programme includes symposia, keynote lectures, abstract presentations and video symposia. Abstracts are invited from HPB surgeons worldwide.
The exhibition and social functions provide many opportunities to network and exchange ideas with fellow professionals and friends.
Please see below a list of upcoming World Congresses:
2 - 5 February 2021
In light of the challenges presented by the COVID-19 global pandemic, and after careful consideration, the IHPBA together with its partners, the ANZHPBA and the A-PHPBA have agreed that the Melbourne World Congress, which was originally to take place in September 2020, should be rescheduled to early 2021.
We have therefore secured the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre for the alternative dates of 2 – 5 February 2021, and look forward to delivering what continues to be the premier event for all those working in HPB medicine worldwide.
We look forward to welcoming you next February, in the beautiful Melbourne summertime.
Until then, stay safe and healthy.
