Dear friends of the International Symposium for Pediatric Surgery (ISPS)!

We would have been very happy to announce at this point the 50. ISPS in Obergurgl in january 2021.
It is due to the current international situation that with a heavy heart we are postponing this anniversary by one year to february 2022 (9.02.-12.02.2022).
It would be irresponsible to the participants not to postpone the symposium, especially since there is the requirement of the Medical University of Vienna not to organize a symposium in this form with increasing numbers of infections.
We count on Your understanding and hope for Your loyalty.
We hope that we all meet in february 2022 in Obergurgl and celebrate then this jubilee together.

Please stay healthy and come safely through these challenging times.
With best regards from Vienna.

Martin Metzelder
