68th Annual Scientifi c Meeting of the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand (USANZ)
Welcome to the 2015 USANZ Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM), the 68th Meeting of the Urological communities of Australia and New Zealand.
South Australia will be host to USANZ 2015. The Meeting will take place between 11-14 April, in Adelaide. The Meeting is set to continue the high-quality that has become the USANZ ASM.
Already we have - through the good work of the USANZ staff, the Scientific Committee, the various SAG leaders and myself, secured a number of world renowned experts.
As usual our local expertise within USANZ will be on display beside an exceptional line-up of international faculty that already includes Glenn Preminger, Frank Keeley, Steve Kaplan, Matt Cooperberg, Steven Campbell, Morgan Roupret, Quoc Trinh, Marty Koyle, Roger Dmochowski, Kellogg Parsons, Ann Gormley and Nirit Rosenblum …and that’s just to mention a few. We aim to continue the superb scientific and educational content for which our USANZ ASM has become known.
Adelaide as a venue has undergone much redevelopment; those who haven’t been here recently are in for a pleasant surprise. April is a perfect time to visit, with the weather as accommodating as our city and residents.
I believe South Australia and particularly Adelaide, is Australia’s best kept secret and the experts agree, with the city ranked among the world’s top 10 city destinations by the Lonely Planet guide. Famous for our food and wine, Adelaide and the surrounding areas offer so much more. Culturally, the arts and sciences – and sport - are embraced and readily accessible within the city. Close by are the wine and food regions in picturesque settings and it is a short trip to the breathtaking, pristine Kangaroo Island, Coorong and Flinders Range National Park wilderness areas. If inclined you can see close at hand the great white shark in its natural environment (protected by a cage)……or you could cycle through the Adelaide Hills in the slip stream of the “Tour Down Under - Australia” and the southern hemisphere’s premier cycling event. If a more leisurely approach is to your liking then meet the native flora and fauna at the Cleland Wildlife Park, Port River Dolphins or the Monarto Open Zoo among other offerings.
USANZ 2015 will see the launch of a new initiative and global competition ‘You tell us your secret, and we’ll show you ours…’ encouraging urological researchers from all over the world to submit their abstract to USANZ 2015.
I invite you to come to Adelaide for USANZ 2015 and stay for a while to investigate our ‘secret’.
