The SOE 2017 courses largely have more of a practical approach and most are instructional courses.  The organisers will bring together a carefully selected faculty in their field of specialty for the courses.  Attendance at the courses are included in the registration fee but access to courses during the Congress is on afirst come – first served” basis and is not guaranteed.  We therefore recommend delegates arrive early at the session room.  Sometimes, there will be topic overlapping with some of the symposia, but the courses will then typically focus on a particular aspect.

The courses have been divided into three different educational levels: basic, intermediate and advanced. Following the success from previous SOE Congresses, the courses continue to be included in the registration fees.
