yESAO

The young ESAO (yESAO) is the young researchers’ initiative of the European Society for Artificial Organs (ESAO). It was founded in 2010 and is an open intercultural and interdisciplinary network of young researchers driven by the passion for artificial organs to produce innovation and advancement in the field. The young investigators are engineers, scientists and clinicians, together with undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students coming from different university laboratories, hospitals and companies. yESAO aims to use innovative methods to provide scientific support and practice-oriented education to researchers of all disciplines in their early career stages. To exchange ideas and experiences, the yESAO organises a conference once a year on 2 days preceding the ESAO Congress. (A. Molteni, M. Mueller: Young ESAO challenges in artificial organs. Int J Artif Organs. 41(11):687-689, 2018)

Friday, September 6
Congress Dinner at the Gallery of the Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen

The Royal Gardens of Herrenhausen impresses with its baroque ornaments and its splendid fountains, as well as many botanical treasures, including a wonderful collection of orchids and other exotic plants in the glasshouses.

The Gallery

Today, the Gallery is the most impressive building in Herrenhausen. It was here that Electress Sophie, already 83 years old, opened a masked ball with a Polonaise on the hand of Czar Peter the Great. A winter quarter for the plants, this monumental orangery was built between 1694 and 1698. Hardly anything has been altered on the basic structure of the building since the time of the electress. The wall frescoes in the Gallery and the living quarters were painted by the Venetian Tomaso Giusti. A cycle depicting the Trojan War, they are an example of southern fresco art coming to full bloom in the north. Five mat gilded, extra-large chandeliers hang heavily from the ceiling, subdividing the room and giving it a distinctly festive character. Monograms of the elector and electress are displayed in artistic tendrils where the chandeliers are mounted on the ceiling.

For the three-hundredth anniversary of the Großer Garten in 1966 the Gallery was given a transparent glass foyer designed by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen.

Awards

Three Poster Awards (500, 300 and 200 Euros respectively) will acknowledge the authors of the best posters. An ESAO Committee will select the awardees based on poster scientific content as well as oral and graphical presentation. The Awards will be notified during the ceremony closing the Congress which the awardees have to attend.
