Dear Colleagues,

The Members of The Board of The European Section of Andrological Urology (ESAU) of The European Association of Urology would like to welcome you in Oporto on June 2nd 2018 in The Joint Scientific Meeting of ESAU together with The Portuguese Society of Andrology.

Andrology brings males closer to females raising their reproductive and sexual function pathophysiology. In fact Andrology starts with the desire of a male and female to approach each other and ends in the coalescence of the male gamete with the female gamete with the subsequent generation of the human life.

Let us meet in the beautiful town of Oporto to discuss extensively most of the dysfunction impeding physical or gamete contact, drink a glass of Oporto wine, and listen to some great Latin music.

On behalf of The ESAU Board,

Nikolaos Sofikitis, MD, PhD, DMSci
Professor of Urology and ESAU Chair

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

“The game is afoot”.

It is with a great joy, satisfaction, proud and honor, that The Portuguese Society of Andrology, Sexual Medicine and Reproduction welcomes the ESAU Oporto Meeting for the first time in history.

This important event that will be held together with our biannual National Meeting, will take place on June 2, 2018 in Oporto, Portugal, and it will be remembered as a great success because of three main reasons: science, education and friendship.

We will have the opportunity to attend high quality scientific sessions, and to be updated about all the new technologies and treatments that will assist all of us in our daily practice in this beautiful field.

Located along the Douro River estuary in northern Portugal, Oporto is one of the oldest European centres, and registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1996. Its settlement dates back many centuries, when it was an outpost of the Roman Empire. Now, it is the time to become an outpost of the Andrology Future Generations.

In the words of many visitors, this city has something mystical that is difficult to describe and which varies according to the place, time of day and light.

One of Portugal’s internationally famous exports, Port Wine, is named for Oporto, since the metropolitan area, and in particular, the adegas of Vila Nova de Gaia were responsible for the production and export of this fortified wine. A must for the senses… don’t miss it!

We encourage you to join us in Oporto in order to enjoy a mixture of science and culture, in the warm company of friends and colleagues.
