  • Sustainable Congress

ESGO deeply cares about the environment, and therefore is assessing the sustainability of all activities at the congress to reduce the environmental footprint. For that reason majority of materials are purely digital. You will be able to download the Final programme and the supplement of International Journal of Gynaecological Oncology from the congress website to reduce paper waste. We strongly recommend downloading the congress mobile app where you will also find the up-to-date programme, abstracts, ePosters, networking events and other useful information. We also have a commitment to source food locally and donate any leftovers, and reduce plastic supporting material at the congress. We will supply you with a water bottle and you are kindly requested to keep it throughout the congress and refill it.


  • Textbook

ESGO's successful Textbook is back for a 6th edition!

The new Textbook edition includes new chapters and topics linked with videos, published ESGO guidelines and quality indicators, and other supplementary materials. The structure of the 6th Textbook edition is designed to follow the new ESGO Curriculum for subspecialty training in gynaecological oncology. Read More
