It is a great pleasure and honour to extend to you a warm invitation to be with us in the ISGKCON 2020 to be held at Thrissur, "the Cultural Capital of Kerala" on May 30th and 31st 2020.

ISGKCON is the Annual Conference of Indian society of Gastroenterology - Kerala chapter.

We are happy and proud to inform you that Thrissur is hosting the annual conference for the first time and assure you that this will be a memorable experience.

The theme "Grey zones in Gastroenterology " has been developed after immense deliberations to provide a wonderful forum to refresh your knowledge base and to clarify the questions that confuse you in your day to day practice. Each topic will be discussed in depth with ample time for discussion. There will be many firsts as well - an out of the box workshop, Endoscopic video championship and BM (Balakrishnan Vallath – Meenu Hariharan) keynote lecture series, being just a few among them.

The venue is one of the finest in Kerala – Hyatt regency Thrissur.  The Conference will strive to offer plenty of networking opportunities, providing you with the opportunity to meet and interact with the legends in the field, some of the best teachers in gastroenterology, friends and colleagues as well as sponsors and exhibitors.
