It is my great pleasure to invite you to join the 11th worldwide meeting of Clinical Robotic Surgery Association (CRSA) that will be held on Nov 1-2, 2019 in Durham, NC, USA.
The meeting is being hosted by the Department of Surgery, Duke University Medical Center in conjunction with CRSA and promises to bring national and international experts in the field of robotics, to share their experiences, in multiple surgical disciplines. We hope to add scientists and engineers to this meeting so we may advance the field together.
Durham, known as the City of Medicine, has excellent medical facilities and a wonderful University. It is easy to get to from to Europe through nonstop flights from London and Paris and also Latin America and the Caribbean. The domestic connections are also excellent from all major cities in the United States.
The venue for the meeting will be the Washington Duke Inn and Gold Club, which is exceptionally charming, has excellent golf facilities and is located on campus. The weather in early November will be relatively mild and being outdoors will be very enjoyable. Durham is also a very foodie place with many wonderful restaurants. So come and enjoy our Southern Hospitality, meet experts to network and learn from, and share your knowledge.
We welcome you to Durham and look forward to seeing you soon.
