Welcome and Introduction by Professor Helle Karro, President of Estonian Gynaecologists' Society

Dear colleagues and friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and Estonian Gynaecologists´ Society we are deeply honoured to invite you to the 22nd European Congress of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, which will be held from May 9th to 12th 2012 in Tallinn, Estonia.

Why to come to Tallinn 2012?

Tallinn is in Europe and still exotic. In Tallinn you will find together old history and traditions on the one hand, and bubbling atmosphere with new ideas and modern development on the other hand. Estonia has been recognized as a well developed e-country – Estonia has strong IT infrastructure, there is wide range of e-services, free internet is available almost everywhere and is basically considered a human right in Estonia.

In addition, Tallinn is the capital of culture for all Europe in 2011 presenting numerous concerts, exhibitions and happenings which will extend to 2012.

The Solaris Conference Hall (Nokia Concert Hall) is a state-of-the-art conference centre, and one of the most modern in the World. The congress centre’s world-class technical equipment will help us make the programme exciting and have convenient e-poster sessions.

The congress centre is in ten minute drive from the airport, five minute walk from the Old Town and not more than ten minute walk from the congress hotels.

The heart of the congress is of course the scientific programme, designed in the spirit of previous EBCOG congresses. However, there are some innovations in the programme.

We warmly welcome our young colleagues of the ENTOG in our training centres in order to exchange experience and further develop networking.

The congress registration fee will be lower than those of recent European congresses to enable more participants from different countries to participate.

Besides profound science, the social programme will be a unique opportunity for us to meet each other and will offer endless possibilities to enjoy music and explore the Mediaeval city. There will be surprises in store for you to help you spend the long white spring evenings.

It will be the first time that the European congress will have taken place in Estonia and it is a great honour and challenge for us to host the congress.

Dear colleagues, we look forward to welcoming you in Tallinn!
