Welcome to the 5th biannual Early Rectal Cancer Meeting – NERC 2015

On behalf of the scientific- and local organizing committee it is a great pleasure to welcome you to our 5th conference. The meeting has evolved from a relatively restricted focus on TEM surgery to a meeting based on TEMS but equally aimed at other aspects of rectal tumours. Consequently the NERC 2015 meeting is no longer a "colorectal-surgeon only arena", but equally interesting for oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and gastroenterologists. Among others, this years focus lies on quality of life, patient communication and transanal TME.

Nordic Early Rectal Cancer meeting

The venue, Solstrand Fjordhotel, is a beautiful old building in scenic surroundings. Both the spa and the food are widely recognized in Norway. All previous meetings have been characterized by an open and friendly atmosphere where questions are easy to ask, and many are eager to answer and join the discussions.

We are looking forward to seeing you.
