Dear Colleagues,

We are honored, proud and pleased to invite you to the 20th World Congress of the International Society of Cryosurgery (ISC2019) which will be held in Haifa, Israel.

The field of cryosurgery is achieving increasing interest around the world due to new scientific data and therapeutic devices and modalities. We would like to invite you to take part in this cutting edge exciting meeting in which science and technology will be integrated. You will have the opportunity to acquire new ideas and discover Haifa and Israel, who is known as the Start-Up Nation. In Israel several innovative Cryosurgical technologies have been developed and launched, which have changed the field of cryosurgery around the world.

This congress will combine valuable high level scientific presentations accompanied with great social activities.

The meeting will be held in Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, beautifully set on the slopes of Mount Carmel facing the Mediterranean Sea, described by some as ‘Israel’s San Francisco’. There are a number of great things to do in Haifa including the Baha'i Gardens, the German Colony, sunny and sandy sea-shore as well as a number of top museums and academic institutions. The city is also known across Israel for its mixed population of Jews and Arabs who peacefully live together, which creates several amazing fusions of Arabic and Jewish cultures that are seen at and around the city.

We look forward to welcome you at the 20th World Congress of the International Society of Cryosurgery and to witness the strengthening effect of science combined with an unforgettable social gathering.

"Ice for Life"

Congress Venue

The  20th World Congress of International Society of Cryosurgery will be held at the Dan Carmel Hotel, Haifa, Israel.

The lively “Capital of the North”, Haifa is Israel’s third largest city and by far one of its most exciting.

While a visit in the spring or summer is an excellent opportunity to go for a swim or lounge on one of its beautiful beaches, Haifa is brimming with things to do and see all year round.

Haifa’s fantastic location at the slopes of the impressive Mount Carmel (an attraction in itself) has earned the city the nickname “the San Francisco of Israel”, and living up to this reputation it is awash with stunning beaches, fascinating sights, buzzing nightlife and an edgy music scene.

The Dan Carmel Hotel is located on Mt. Carmel and overlooking the beautiful Bay of Haifa. 

The Dan Carmel's recently refurbished rooms and suites are all designed with classic and elegant tones, complete with modern accessories and luxurious comforts.
