Welcome to Turku

It is our honour to host the 4th Nordic Congress on Endometriosis in 2013 (NCE2013) in Turku, the oldest town of Finland. Turku is also known as the oldest university town in Finland since the establishment of the Academy of Turku in 1640. Today Turku is a gateway of tourism, culture, modern ideas and research between Finland and the rest of Europe.

The springtime in Turku creates an attractive atmosphere for gathering together with researchers and medical professionals interested in endometriosis today. Along the lovely banks of the river Aura you will find the old town centre, harbour, the cathedral and the castle as well as several hotels, cafes and restaurants.

It is a privilege to invite you to Turku on 23 - 25 May 2013. Our congress NCE2013 offers the latest knowledge in science and patient care and promotes the exchange of experiences and ideas. We believe that the scientific program, live operations and social events will fulfil your expectations. The Congress dinner will be arranged in the beautiful Turku archipelago.

We look forward to meeting you in Turku.

On behalf of the NCE 2013 Congress Organising Committee,


Juha Mäkinen
Congress President
