Welcome to Asicon

The organizing committee, Delhi State Chapter and the Association of Surgeons of India feel privileged and honored to extend a personal invitation to you to join us at asicon2010, the 70th Annual Conference of the Association of Surgeons of India, being held at asicon City, AIIMS Campus, New Delhi, India from December 15 – 20, 2010.

This conference will be a landmark event in the glorious history of our Association. It promises to provide an academic, social and cultural feast to all its participants.

Asicon 2010 Live, the workshop on December 15 will be a different experience. It will have multiple halls transmitting live operations from centers of excellence in India and abroad, in a structured format. The range will include “basic surgery hall” which will be targeting post graduates and beginners to an “Upper GI Hall “, Hepato-Pancreatico- Biliary hall”, “Colorectal Hall” and “Urology Hall” which will all be showing advanced, complex surgeries performed by masters which will be an academic feast for even the experienced surgeons.

Asicon CME on December 16 will have lectures in contemporary topics as well as master classes for post graduate by senior faculty from across the country.

The main conference from December 17 – 20 covering general surgery as well as specialty will also be different. The stress will be on the “practical aspects” on the topics of interest to one and all. Video component will be encouraged in every presentation.

Based on the inputs from delegates across the country, numerous New Features being added this time include “Know your tools”, “Digital technology and Surgeon”, “Virtual Reality in Surgical Training”, “Medico-legal issues in surgical in practice”, “Basics of Biostatistics that everyone must know” as well as a “Video hall” which will have large number of computer stations with preloaded, structured videos, drawn from national faculty, covering all the important topics.

ASITECH, the international technology show, will be a unique feature of this conference. We are working hard to get all the major players from India and abroad to put up their “tech-show” at ASITECH so as to make all the recent technological advances available to our delegates under one roof. For the first time in any conference in our country, a theme hall on “Surgeon as an entrepreneur” has been planed. The “ASITECH” will provide ample opportunities for the exchange of the scientific information between delegates and technical experts from the industry.

Apart from rich scientific content, asicon2010 will provide a unique opportunity for the families to enjoy the varied cultural programs as well as savor the rich heritage and contemporary culture of the city of Delhi.

The weather in mid December will be “pleasantly cool” neither too cold nor foggy and the city of New Delhi will be at its best after the Commonwealth games. Overall, “ asicon 2010 is an event that you just cannot afford to miss ”.

We once again invite you to join us for this mega event and enrich it with your gracious presence and active participation.

We look forward to welcoming you at “New” New Delhi in December 2010.
