International Association for Surgical Metabolism and Nutrition
World Congress of Surgery (formerly International Surgical Week)

The main meeting of IASMEN is in conjunction with the biennial World Congress of Surgery WCS (formerly named International Surgical Week ISW) organized by the International Society of Surgery (ISS/SIC). Regularly some 15-20 International Specialist Societies, amongst which are the six ISS/SIC Collective Member Societies (IASMEN, IATSIC, IAES, BSI, ISDS, ASAP) as well as some National Surgical Societies cover the broad spectrum of surgery during a 4-day scientific program. With the aim to gather surgeons in all stages of their career and from all around the globe, the WCS provides a platform for the mutual exchange of scientific knowledge and new techniques.
