From the President





Professor Giles Toogood

We have made the exciting decision to proceed with the UGI Congress in Belfast between 13 to 15 October 2021. The meeting will be a hybrid meeting with capacity for both face to face and virtual delegates.  We believe that this will provide flexibility for all our constituent Society members irrespective of future circumstances.

We have an early bird registration fee that ends on the 10 September 2021 and is the same registration fee as the AUGIS Scientific Conference in 2019. Due to current social distancing regulations in Northern Ireland the number of face to face delegates will be limited and given out on a first come first served basis. When you register you will have a choice of either face to face (F2F) or virtual (Virtual) registration. If the situation deteriorates, face to face registrants will be moved to virtual registration. Virtual only registrants should not travel.

The registration fee for both face to face and virtual registration is the same since the advanced audio-visual and streaming package available at the Assembly Rooms in Belfast is our most significant expense.  Face to face registration will only be available up to the 10 September 2021.

To find out more and to register, visit:

AUGIS/BBUGSS/GBIHPBA/Pancreatic Society and UKIEUS all need your support and commitment to this meeting. Please encourage all your team members to register. We have already had several hundred abstracts submitted. Registration for face to face delegates closes on the 10th September. Please register now in order to confirm your place. Importantly it will allow us to plan for a secure and safe on site conference in October.
