Dear colleagues,
We are pleased to invite you to the First European Conference of Young Gastroenterologists “Challenges in clinical gastroenterology and hepatology” that will be held in Sheraton Hotel, in Zagreb, from 6-9 December 2018.
With the aim of better and further education and training, and even more in the desire to strengthen international  cooperation  between  young gastroenterologists  and  other  professionals  related  to gastroenterology  and  hepatology,  the  Croatian  National  Society  of  Gastroenterology  with  its  Youth Section has set to organize the first European conference of young gastroenterologists (ECYG). The conference  is  supported  by  European  Association  for  Gastroenterology,  Endoscopy  and  Nutrition (EAGEN), European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESMN) and European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB), University of Zagreb and University of Rijeka, University of Zagreb School of Medicine, Faculty of Medicine University of Rijeka and Split, University of Rijeka Faculty of Health Studies, Croatian Medical Association, City of Zagreb, as well as by Croatian Ministry of Health.
During the conference, sessions in hepatology and liver transplantation, inflammatory bowel disease and  gut  microbiota,  functional  GI  disorders,  clinical  nutrition,  GI  oncology  and  education  of  young gastroenterologists  will  be  held.  A  challenging  clinical  case  followed  by  up-to-date  guidelines  and evidence-base on the management of that particular case will be presented by a GI resident or a young gastroenterologist, while each session will be chaired by acknowledged experts in the field that will make comments. Alongside the theoretical part, hands-on workshops will be organized where delegates will be able to learn or improve skills in different ultrasound based diagnostic modalities. Selected  abstracts  will  be  presented  during  two  abstract  sessions,  and  the  best  abstracts  will  be presented as oral presentations at the last session of the conference. Additionally, ESPEN Life Long Learning Programme (LLL) ‘Nutritional support in GI disorders’ will be organized where delegates will be able to acquire knowledge about clinical nutrition in the context of gastroenterology and hepatology. 
As the conference will be organized in December, all delegates will have the opportunity to enjoy the Advent in the City of Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, which has received awards for the best Christmas Market in Europe for the past three years. 
We hope that scientific part of the conference together with networking opportunities will facilitate exchange  of  experience  and  ideas  hopefully  resulting  with  fruitful  collaboration  and  long-lasting relationships and friendship among colleagues from all over Europe.
Looking forward to seeing you in Zagreb!
