ISDE World Congress

Join us #ISDE2024

Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues

We are delighted to invite you to join us in person for the 20th ISDE World Congress for Esophageal Diseases in historic Edinburgh, Scotland. The Congress will take place at the Edinburgh International Convention Centre (EICC) on September 22-24, 2024.

The 2024 program will cover a wide range of subjects, including both benign and malignant diseases, with discussions on epidemiology, fundamental molecular mechanisms, diagnostics and novel therapies, to name just a few. Special sessions will be organized by the Chinese Society for Diseases of the Esophagus and the European Society for Diseases of the Esophagus, the Young ISDE committee, and the Diseases of the Esophagus Journal Festival.

It is the ambition of the ISDE to maintain and increase diversity within the Society in the broadest sense of the word. For the upcoming Congress, ISDE will attract stakeholders from all disciplines, who will contribute to better understanding, resolving, and sharing the knowledge of the diseases of the esophagus. It is therefore a great honor to invite gastroenterologists, surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, biologists, nurses, patient representatives, and industry partners from different parts of the world to this 20th ISDE World Congress.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Scotland’s capital. Edinburgh has a medieval Old Town and elegant Georgian New Town with gardens and neoclassical buildings. Looming over the city is Edinburgh Castle, home to Scotland’s crown jewels and the Stone of Destiny, used in the coronation of Scottish rulers. Arthur’s Seat is an imposing peak in Holyrood Park with sweeping views, and Calton Hill is topped with monuments and memorials. The World Congress in this vibrant city is not to be missed.

Looking forward to seeing you in Edinburgh!
