The European Begg Society of Orthodontics (EBSO) will organize its 26th Congress in Leiden (The Netherlands).
The EBSO was founded in 1967 as a study group of orthodontists, eager to develop their skills in orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances, especially using the light wire technique as developed by P. Raymond Begg in Australia and introduced in Europe by Kees Booy in 1960. Since then the Society meets every other year in a different European country. Presently, the EBSO focuses on a broad spectrum of orthodontic techniques in conjunction with scientific evidence. The special attractiveness of these congresses is the clinical character, the relaxed atmosphere and sufficient time for speakers and discussions.
The congress in 2015 will take place in the “Stadsgehoorzaal”, the city auditorium that has been restored very recently.
Leiden was founded at the banks of the river Rhine, the northern boundary of the Roman Empire. It developed during the medieval ages to a prosperous city. The two crossed keys in the town logo refer to the Patron Saint Peter with the addition of “Presidium Libertatis”. The liberation in 1574 on October 3rd (Leiden’s Ontzet), after the siege by the Spanish during the Eighty Years War, is a major event in the history of the Netherlands. Shortly afterwards the Leiden University was founded. During the Golden Ages, Leiden, as a center of textile industry, grew to the second largest city in the Low Lands (after Amsterdam). Nowadays it is a prominent center of science and technology with many well-preserved remnants of a rich history. Its location nearby Amsterdam, Delft, The Hague and Schiphol airport is very favorable.
We offer a promising social and partner programme to enjoy the impressive old city, the beautiful typical Dutch countryside by boat and our gastronomy.
This is a great opportunity to meet colleagues, to enhance ideas, but most of all to share friendship. We warmly welcome you to the Netherlands for the EBSO congress from 13 to 16 May 2015 in Leiden.
