41st Congress of the Société Internationale d'Urologie
November 10-14, 2021

Dear Colleagues,

We thank you for your enthusiastic response to SIU 2020 – we were thrilled to see so many active participants online during the meeting this past fall. The feedback has been extremely positive, and we thank our expert faculty and participants for making this meeting a success! We hope you continue to enjoy these high-quality presentations on demand via SIU Academy.

Alongside our committee members and SIU scientific council, we are busy preparing another state-of-the-art programme for SIU 2021. Based on your feedback, results of the SIU Needs Assessment survey and input from experts around the world, we are crafting a dynamic programme that will cover the latest updates in urology and share practical tips and tricks on a variety of topics.

Whether you will be able to join us in-person in Dubai or simply connect via our online platform, [email protected], SIU 2021 will provide important scientific programming you have come to expect from the SIU Annual Congress. While we understand that it will take time for meetings to resume as they once did, we remain optimistic that a smaller in-person meeting will be possible near the end of next year. As always, the safety and well-being of our community and the public remains at the forefront of any planning.

We invite you to stay tuned and check back in early 2021 for the detailed programme schedule and additional details. In the meantime, get ready to submit your abstracts. Submission is already open here, and the deadline is May 1, 2021.
