You are invited to participate in the 33rd annual meeting of the European Bone and Joint Infection Society (EBJIS), to be held September 11-13, 2014 and hosted by the city of Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The EBJIS is an European association of orthopedic surgeons, trauma surgeons, infectious disease specialists and microbiologists. They all have a focus on the infections of the musculoskeletal system. At the same time they are involved in research in this area. The members of this association come from 32 countries, mainly from Europe but also from other continents.
The annual meeting will bring together experts, practitioners and companies involved in infections affecting bone and joints. Professionals attending this meeting will benefit from high-level scientific presentations, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities, with the overall goal of promoting prevention and treatment of these diseases.
For over 30 years now the EBJIS organizes its annual meeting in one of the European countries. For the second time the meeting is organized in the Netherlands. This time it is hosted in Utrecht, which is the fourth largest city, full of history and located central in the Netherlands. Utrecht is about 30 minutes traveling by train from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
The local committee is working hard on the organization of EBJIS 2014. They are putting together an interesting program.
We look forward to a high qualitative and inspiring annual meeting of the EBJIS and hope to see you in Utrecht on 11 September 2014!
