Dear HPB Colleagues,

On behalf of the French chapter of the E-AHPBA, this is our privilege to welcome you to the City of Lyon, France, to participate to the 15th biennial Congress of the European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association in 2023.


The biennial E-AHPBA Congress is a unique occasion that brings together eminent HPB experts and leaders. Since France has a long tradition of HPB Surgery and Liver Transplantation, and French HPB surgeons have actively participated and contributed in the E-AHPBA committees and congresses, we are very proud to host the 2023 E-AHPBA Congress in Lyon.

An outstanding scientific programme that combines current evidence and state of the art technology has been organised and will provide an excellent opportunity for learning and discussion.


The Scientific Committee of E-AHPBA and the Local Organising Committee are continuing to work hard to provide a diverse scientific programme with participation from a variety of European speakers to make the 15th Congress of the European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association in Lyon, France, unique.

It will offer in person sessions such as state-of-the-art lectures, meet the expert lectures, interdisciplinary symposia, debates and updates on all topics

Our goal is to organize an exciting and outstanding face–to-face meeting with worldwide experts and colleagues. This will be the opportunity to bring together high level scientific exchanges and French style of life.

Looking forward to meeting you at the forthcoming 2023 E-AHPBA Congress in Lyon.

The EAHPBA was founded in 1999 as the European Regional Association of the International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (IHPBA). The Association then expanded to countries of the Middle East and Africa, thus, forming the European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (E-AHPBA) in 2011. Currently, the Association counts for more than 1000+ active members from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The primary mission of the Association is to be the prime interdisciplinary organization for HPB-surgical science and scholarship in our region, and to provide an international forum for presenting the state-of-the-art developments and science of HPB-surgery.
