The scientific committee of the 27 th Saudi Urological Conference tried its best to produce a program meeting the expectations of the targeted audience. We hope that we were successful in matching the interest of most attended colleagues.
The preconference activities were designed for educational courses and workshops, where residents and nurses could choose the ones match their interests. The main scientific program offers thematic-, plenary-, abstracts-, and poster/video sessions. For the first time residents organized 2 sessions, where they host four international experts on the panel discussing 4 specific hot topics. To encourage our colleagues submitting abstracts, we announced that best abstracts will be awarded and publication of all accepted abstracts in the UROLOGY ANNALS is offered as has been agreed upon with the Editos-In- Chief of the UA.
The abstracts proceeding contains 70 accepted abstracts, which makes 74% of all submitted abstracts. 16% of the abstracts were presented in oral main sessions, 38% in oral parallel sessions and 46% were displayed as posters. Of the accepted abstracts 28% were endo-urology, 26% andrology, 16% general urology, 16% pediatric urology, 12% onco-urology and 2% were neuro-urology.
We highly appreciate the decision made by the Editor-IN-Chief of the UROLOGY ANNALS, Prof. Khalid Fouda to arrange a UA-Supplement for the Abstracts Proceeding of the 27 th Saudi Urological Conference.
