Dear Colleagues

We are very pleased to announce the 2020 Joint Congress of the European Society for Diseases of the Esophagus and the International Gastric Cancer Association European Chapter.

In the peculiar social, political and economic situation that our common home, Europe, is facing, we would hope that the borders among different Nations could be overcome; in the same way there should not be any artificial borders between the esophagus and stomach, the ESDE and IGCAEC. This is what “Beyond the Borders” means: a wish for common activities and scientific goals for our societies for the benefit of our patients.

We wish you an enjoyable and fruitful meeting in Milano.

Riccardo Rosati
