Presence of the UEG in 2015 SED The United European Gastroenterol-ogy (UEG) participated with a booth at the Spanish Digestive Diseases Week 2015 which was attended by many lawmakers to learn about the training and scientific offers of the European society. Many other activi-ties and projects of the UEG were pre-sented, including information about the upcoming UEG Week, which will be held in Barcelona from 24 to 28 October. SEPD’s commitment with Digestive Intelligence The SEPD is committed to encourage and develop Spanish Digestive Intelli-gence tools. By Digestive Intelligence, the SEPD understands the generation, coordination, dissemination, and ap-plication of knowledge useful for the improvement of health care provided in Gastroenterology Services. Knowl-edge stems from data and project information (studies, surveys, records) through analysis of information from clinical practice, clinical management, and quality improvement (indicators, monitoring of trends, algorithms, etc.). Therefore, the SEPD will soon launch the CID (Knowledge and Di-gestive Intelligence) platform, www. sepd.es/cid that will start taking steps to transform data provided in surveys into information and knowledge (of registries, for example), enabling ef-ficient planning and decision making. (VIDEO) SED 2015 (Spanish Digestive Diseases Week): a success of attendance and abstracts submission More than 1,050 digestive specialists, national and international, gathered in Seville to celebrate the Spanish Digestive Diseases Week (SED 2015). The conference has been a scientific and educational success. The LXXIV Annual Congress of the SEPD received a total of 647 original communica-tions, of which 507 papers have been accepted by the Scientific Commit-tee and submitted to the SEPD for presented during the SED. If you want to look at some of the scientific developments shared, please review our ABSTRACTS during SED 2015. Among the significant develop-ments we had offered on the SED 2015, we included e-posters that allow an improved reading and presenta-tion over last year, offering a clear and effective view of the data presented. All e-posters could be comfortably consulted by attendees in this format using touch screens during the confer-ence itself and through a free app available to read all abstracts through mobile devices. Activities were broadcast during the SED 2015 in real time through differ-ent channels from the instantaneous Spanish Journal of Gastroenterology (REED) The REED is the official publication of the Spanish Society of Digestive Diseases (SEPD) and has been pub-lished continuously since 1944. This monthly scientific publication has recently published the article “Man-agement of antithrombotic drugs as-sociated with endoscopic procedures” (REED vol. 107, no. 5, 2015). This special article, authored by Drs. Fer-nando Alberca de las Parras, Francisco Marín, Vanessa Roland Schilling, and Fernando Carballo Álvarez, is the result of a close collaboration with the Group on Thrombosis of the Span-ish Society of Cardiology (SEC), the Spanish Society of Digestive Endos-copy (SEED), the Spanish Society of Digestive Diseases (SEPD), and the Spanish Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis (SETH). These associa-tions have teamed up with the aim of providing clinical guidelines regarding the use of antiplatelet agents and anti-coagulants, developing algorithms and proposing a practical performance of a protocol for endoscopy units. We recommend this article as an example of the quality and scientific level of national and international papers published each month in the REED http://www.reed.es.
