LL: Living Legend KN: Keynote Lecture
MTP: Meet the Professors SYM: Symposium
DEB: Debate US: Updates

Throughout the program, we have the following lecture types:

Living Legend
Not to be missed – an opportunity to hear from some of the most important surgeons in our field who have stamped their mark on the field of HPB surgery. Each will speak on a separate topic reflecting their career’s passion (Liver, Pancreas, Biliary Tract or Transplantation Surgery) in exclusive plenary sessions throughout the Congress.

Keynote Lectures
These are state-of the-art presentations of highly topical and timely subjects in HPB surgery, addressed to all Congress participants. Leading international speakers, with considerable expertise in the subject at hand, have been invited to conduct these Keynote Lectures. This motif is scheduled at “prime time” in the program, unopposed to other activities, to achieve maximum attendance.

Thomas Starzl Memorial Lecture
Thomas Earl Starzl (March 11, 1926 – March 4, 2017) was an American physician, researcher, and expert on organ transplants. He performed the first human liver transplants, and has often been referred to as “the father of modern transplantation.” In recognition of his many contributions and to honor his legacy, the Thomas Starzl lecture has become a permanent feature of IHPBA’s biennial World Congress.

We are honoured that Professor Satoru Todo from Japan will give the Thomas Starzl lecture at the 2020 World Congress. Professor Todo’s lecture is titled ‘Immune Tolerance in Liver Transplantation; Current and Future’.

This lecture requires independent funding and you can contribute to the Thomas Starzl lecture fund here.

Meet the Professor
Meet the Professor sessions allow delegates to meet in a small group with renowned researchers and clinicians. The format is designed to facilitate informal discussions, allowing participants to present their questions and gain new perspectives. To foster a more intimate learning environment, space is limited.

Symposia
Symposia are significant educational sessions aimed at critically reviewing diverse aspects of a specific topic. Moderators will oversee between 4-6 focused talks which probe the depth of the topic. The target audience consists of delegates who are primarily interested in the subject or wish to update their knowledge in the area. Audience interaction will be prominent with robust “Question and Answer” opportunities. Many of the symposia will feature Multidisciplinary, Technical, or Scientific themes.

IHPBA Meets “Societies”
These symposia will be hosted jointly by Partner Societies. Speakers selected from IHPBA and the Partner Society will contribute in a facilitated symposia, providing an opportunity for exchange of ideas, debate and discussion. Partner Societies who have agreed to contribute are listed below:

  • International Biliary Tract Cancer Collaborators (IBTCC)
  • International Laparoscopic Liver Society (ILLS)
  • International Consortium on Minimally Invasive Pancreatic Surgery (I-MIPS)

Debates
Debates allow speakers to debate controversial topics in an attractive format which provides “food for thought”. Questions for which we have no good answers yet are featured.  This motif is always lively and entertaining.  The faculty chosen for these sessions are highly acclaimed clinicians with a passion for their positions.

Updates
These are sessions in which speakers are expected to provide objective, exhaustive reviews in a field, either clinical or basic.  Issues regarding diagnosis, management and different aspects of research will be evaluated. They are addressed to participants who wish to acquire practical knowledge on a specific subject.  The presenter’s own clinical acumen will allow for clinical interpretation of the data presented.  An interactive discussion with the audience at the end of the session is expected.
