President Knut Hordnes Dear Colleagues

On behalf of the Organising Committee, I have the pleasure of inviting you to the 38th Congress of the Nordic Federation of Societies of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Bergen, Norway, 16–19 June 2012.

Our meeting will take place in Grieghallen in the center of Bergen. Grieghallen is a highly professional conference center and has hosted many great national and international events.
We have received 222 abstracts excluding invited speakers. This is a record-high.
The NFOG Scientific Committee is also thrilled by the high standard of the submitted abstracts.
Sign up for the congress now in order to enjoy these presentations.

The congress hotels are located nearby in the city center and thus within easy walking distance from the congress venue. They are also close to the UNESCO world heritage listed old town center with its Hanseatic architecture and wharf.

As congresses tend to be more specialized to discrete subjects within obstetrics and gynecology, the mission of the Nordic congresses remain as valuable as ever: the scientific program will provide a unique opportunity to learn about the latest progress in every corner of our field.
The social program will demonstrate the Bergen hospitality at its best and even beyond; and will also take place within the city center.

The Nordic congresses in our field are the preeminent meeting place for all colleagues. There will be opportunity to meet old and make friends from within the Nordic countries, and also from the world outside.

We are looking forward to welcome you!

Knut Hordnes
Congress President

Not only the Norwegian Trolls are delivered in breech or by forceps. By focusing on the skills of vaginal deliveries,
excellent statistics for perinatal outcome is combined with a cesarean section rate around 10% at the hosting institution.
