Creating consensus, advancing science, and improving education in Central Europe

The new CEM is taking place in Vienna, the breathtaking capital of Austria. From 17-18 April 2020. A collaboration between the urologic societies of Central Europe with the mission to elevate the education and scientific level to forge the urologic stars of the future.

Dear Colleagues,

Come join us in splendid, vibrant Vienna for the much-awaited 1st edition of the new Central European Meeting (CEM20) which will take place from 17 to 18 April 2020.

For almost 2 decades, CEM garnered its reputation as the platform to feature dynamic work of urologists within and beyond the region. Without breaking tradition, the Scientific Programme of the upcoming CEM20 promises to deliver significant urological updates, tackle controversial issues and clinical dilemmas.  A new partnership has been created between the urological societies of Central Europe  with the mission to elevate the educations and scientific level to forge the urologic stars of the future.


Boost your know-how on day one by participating in workshops on urolithiasis, reconstructive urology, urologic oncology, female urology and laparoscopy and endoscopy. Fine-tune your writing and presentation skills to maximise the impact of your research when you disseminate it to colleagues.


Day two will deliver a comprehensive overview of all the practice-changing new data and translate them into a clear roadmap to the clinic. This super regional meeting will enable you to integrate innovation into your daily practice and thereby improve patient care.


The traditional CEM20 Young Urologist Competition will highlight the talent of promising urologists. The uro-oncology session, state-of-the-art lectures on core urology topics, and poster sessions, will bring you key urology essential for your daily clinical practice. Under the tutelage expert urological surgeons, you will further your learning during the workshops and hands-on trainings on day one and a specific course by the European School of Urology (ESU).


There is plenty for you to look forward to at CEM20. It would be a pleasure to welcome you in the Austrian capital for a highly-informative and productive meeting!

Top-3 reasons to visit CEM20

Semi-live surgery and interactive, small group courses

The core of the CEM20 courses consists of semi-live surgery demonstrations, hands-on and case-based small group workshops. Attendees will learn practical tips and tricks from  international leaders in the field. Sign up for these courses that are taught according to the highest standards by global experts.

The latest in the field

In the fast-moving world of Urology the CEM20 will keep you updated on the latest developments, breakthroughs and emerging techniques. It is the Central European platform for sharing knowledge and experience, continuous learning and capacity building in Urology. An exhibition showcases all the latest therapies, instruments and services.

Addressing controversies in Urology

Conferences are informative, but there is often only limited time for thorough and critical discussions. CEM20 provides a platform for Central European experts to discuss and compare experiences, thus closing the gap between the expansion of knowledge and its dissemination and use. The core of CEM20 is to focus on highly debatted unresolved issues. We aim to provide the most recent data empowering the clinician with reliable, up-to-date scientific information to improve everyday patient care.
