Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear colleagues,

We look forward to welcoming you to the 36th Annual Meeting of the European Bone and Joint Infection Society which will be held in Nantes, France on 7-9 September 2017.

The conference will be held in the La Cité – Nantes Events Center in France. Nantes is an appealing and varied destination with an architectural, historical and industrial heritage. There is a lot to see in the city, among others in the historic part of the city where you will find the 15th-century cathedral to the Château of the Dukes of Brittany, which is now a museum of regional history. 

The conference will bring together experts, practitioners and companies involved in infections affecting bone and joint. Professionals attending the conference will benefit from high-level scientific presentations, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities. The scientific programme will be provided with keynote lectures, free paper sessions, industry symposia and posters.

The principle topics for EBJIS 2017 are:

New strategies and biotechnologies in MSI

The « aseptic » joint arthroplasty revision: From Prosthetic Joint Infection misdiagnosis to excessive antibiotic treatment

Pediatric and adult osteoarticular oncologic surgeries - Infection management: Where are we?

Low grade infections with rare and multidrug resistant pathogens

Shoulder protheses and osteosynthesis: Management of the osteoarticular infections

State of the art: Diabetic foot osteomyelitis

Prosthetic Joint Infection in elderly people

We look forward to welcoming you to Nantes.

On behalf of the local organising committee and the EBJIS board,

Gérard Giordano, Conference Chair

Klaus Kirketerp-Mølller, President of EBJIS

General Info:

All prices are subject to 20% VAT (10 % VAT on dinner)

NB: It is required by the local authorities that we charge local VAT, hence the reverse charge mechanism does not apply and it is therefore not possible for attendees, that are taxable persons in another EU country or established outside EU, to receive an invoice without local VAT. This general rule follows from article 53 & 55 of the EU VAT Directive.

*The EBJIS member fee is only valid for members of EBJIS. We reserve the right to change your registration if your status does not correspond with the EBJIS membership list. In such case you will receive email notification and will be required to pay the non-member fee. Please be aware of terms of cancellation.

**Nurses are welcome to register for the resident fee. 

*** Tickets for the gala dinner on 8 September are not included in the registration fee and are non-refundable. There are limited seats at the dinner.

Scientific Content Up to Date
Submission Info

A. General conditions

Abstracts are required for all oral presentations and posters.

Abstracts must be submitted by 8 May 2017 (23:59 GMT)

Abstracts must be submitted in English.

Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference abstract book, app and on the conference website. Abstracts accepted as oral abstract will be published online in the Orthopaedic Proceedings of the Bone & Joint Journal. By submitting an abstract you consent to giving EBJIS 2017 permission to publish your abstract.

Withdrawal of abstracts can only be accepted if notified in writing and subsequently confirmed by the EBJIS Conference Secretariat.

B. Presenting author and registration

The presenting author must register as an active participant at the conference at the latest 14 days after acceptance of an abstract.

EBJIS reserves the right to exclude any abstract from the scientific programme that is not followed by a participant registration at the latest 14 days after notification on acceptance.

C. Contents of your abstract

 The abstract word limit is max. 400 words per abstract. If an illustration (one allowed) is uploaded for inclusion in the abstract, the word count should be diminished by 100 words. If the word count is not reduced adequately, the EBJIS 2017 organisers reserve the right to omit the illustration from the published abstract.

The title should be as brief as possible but long enough to clearly indicate the nature of the study.

No identifying features such as names of authors, hospitals, medical schools, clinics or cities may be listed in the title or abstract text, as a “blind” review process will be used. You will be asked to enter the name(s) of author(s) and their institution(s), when you submit your abstract online.

The abstract must include the following:

Aim: Clearly state the purpose of the abstract.

Methods: Describe your selection of observations or experimental subjects clearly.

Results: Present your results in a logical sequence in text, table and illustrations.

Conclusions: Emphasize new and important aspects of the study (perhaps as a discussion section) and the conclusions that are drawn from them.

All abbreviations must be defined in first use.

Statements such as “results will be discussed” or “data will be presented” cannot be accepted.

Illustration: One figure/table/photograph may be added to an abstract. Submit your graphical illustration in jpg format and make reference to the illustration in the abstract text. Provide a brief caption for your illustration. In case an illustration is uploaded, reduce the abstract word count by 100 words.

Please note that in the online Orthopaedic Proceedings of the Bone & Joint Journal, illustrations are not allowed, and will be removed before publication. 

References: A maximum of five literature references may be added at the end of the abstract text. For each reference you can only state the first author’s name and bibliography (not the title of the paper).

Acknowledgements: Mention all sources of funding of the work described and other acknowledgements briefly at the end of the abstract text. References and acknowledgements are included in the 400 word count for the abstract text. 

Use of brand names: Generic names must be used for all references to products or companies. The brand name can be inserted as a reference at the bottom of the abstract page. Papers containing brand names/company names in the abstract text (i.e. not in a reference at the bottom of the page) may be rejected for this reason only. EBJIS reserves the right to replace any brand name with a generic name without further notice.

E. Reviewing

The scientific committee will review the abstract.

Notification of acceptance or rejection of the abstract will be sent directly to all presenting authors (and submitters) by email.

It is the responsibility of all investigators that all studies are performed with respect to national legislation, international legislation and ethical guidelines for medical research involving humans and/or animals. The EBJIS 2017 Scientific Committee reserves the right to reject any submitted abstract that is believed to violate these principles.

Please verify that your email address (submitter and presenting author) is correct as it will be used for contacting you after the review process.

Abstract submission deadline 2017-06-15
