WELCOME TO SCAPLAS 2022 IN REYKJAVIK, ICELAND

Welcome

It is our pleasure to announce the 38th Congress of the Scandinavian Association of Plastic Surgeons – SCAPLAS, taking place in Reykjavík, Iceland, 13 – 15 June 2022. The 10th Nordic Congress of Nurses in Plastic Surgery will be a part of the Congress and take place 13 – 14 June 2022. The 17th Nordic Burn Meeting will be held 12 – 13 June 2022, in conjunction with the Congress.

We will be celebrating 70 years anniversary of SCAPLAS (1951-2021)!

This is a plastic surgery-focused congress   that brings surgeons, nurses, and residents together from the Nordic Countries? and beyond. The congress will not only connect plastic surgeons and nurses professionally from these countries, but also will help forge and reinforce friendships that can last throughout our careers. The Congress will be held in Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre that is located in the heart of Reykjavik, overlooking the Faxaflói bay and Mount Esja.  It is close to most of the Congress hotels, art galleries, shopping areas and restaurants.

June – Iceland’s month of “the midnight sun” – is a wondrous time for a visit.  We will offer various excursions hoping participants will use this opportunity to take time to enjoy the unique nature of Iceland as well as shape the future of plastic surgery together!

We are looking forward to seeing you in Iceland!

The spectacle of colors in Iceland is out of this world. 😍 The yellow color of the glacial rivers is caused by sulfur from nearby volcanic areas. The contrast between the river and the black sand makes it magical, especially when seen from above. 🤩#inspiredbyiceland
