Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 2019 edition of Emirates International Gastroenterology and Hepatology Conference (EIGHC 2019) taking place on 14 – 16 November 2019 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. EIGHC 2019 will present an invaluable opportunity for gastroenterology and hepatology professionals to learn about the latest research and advancement in the field.

We have maintained the international perspectives in the scientific agenda through our partnership with the biggest international societies on gastroenterology and hepatology. This is the only conference in the region where these societies: European Association for the Study of  the Liver; World Endoscopy Organization;  European Crohn’s and Colitis Organization; and European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy will all be holding sessions under one umbrella, that of EIGHC 2019. We are excited to host a Nursing Workshop in collaboration with European Society of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Nurses and Associations.

Our objective is to elevate the level of science in gastroenterology and hepatology in the region through the delivery of an excellent scientific meeting that will foster knowledge sharing and exchange of experiences through keynote sessions, symposia, panel discussions.

To nurture continuous scientific developments, we warmly invite you to share your research and findings by responding to our call for abstracts. Accepted abstracts can be presented as oral, poster or video presentations at the conference.

We encourage you to use this exciting opportunity to join us for a meeting that promises a great scientific program and enjoyable social interaction and experience the unique social and cultural heritage of Dubai.
