Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues, 

After the very successful past EUGMS (European Union Geriatric Medicine Society) Congresses, we hope to continue this series with a high quality program to celebrate the  10th EUGMS Congress.  

We cordially invite you to join colleagues from all over the world to participate as a presenter or an attendee at
the 10th Congress of the EUGMS in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, from 17-19 September 2014. 
The main theme of the congress will be: Geriatric Medicine Crossing Borders.  

The scientific committee is finalizing a core curriculum which includes the interplay between cutting-edge science and everyday practice, between general practitioner and specialist, hospital and nursing home, between different countries and cultures on topics such as dementia, frailty, end-of-life care, nutrition, education, mobility disorders, rehabilitation, acute and long term care, pain, delirium etc.  

The congress is being organized in cooperation with the annual Dutch "Geriatriedagen”, which is a platform for all workers in the field of geriatric medicine. Consequently, the submitted symposia as well as poster sessions and workshops provide ample opportunities to increase your knowledge and skills in geriatric medicine, in good collaboration with other branches of gerontology as well as nursing science. The program offers a great choice of topics for geriatricians and gerontologists, as well as specialized nurses and other paramedics. 

The EUGMS Congress  is a great opportunity to combine the earning of CME points and interaction with colleagues interested in geriatric medicine from all over the world. And of course an opportunity to visit the exciting city of Rotterdam, one of the main ports of the world, with all kinds of attractions including  boat excursions, museums and a famous zoo.  

The congress venue is in the heart of the city with many hotels within walking distance  and plenty of shopping opportunities.  

Reserve the date in your agenda! Updated information about the program can be found on on a regular basis.

Congress President

All accepted abstracts will be published in an abstract book that will be printed and distributed among the participants.  

We are pleased to announce that JAMA, one of the international high-profile general medical journals, will consider papers presented in the EUGMS Rotterdam congress for potential publication. 

Authors must notify the chair of the Scientific Committee of the EUGMS congress in Rotterdam board of their intention to submit  a paper to JAMA when they submit their abstract for the EUGMS 2014 congress (deadline: May 17th 2014) . 
They have to submit their full paper to JAMA before May 17, 2014. 
All submissions will undergo the regular JAMA peer review process and if accepted, will be published online concurrent to the Rotterdam EUGMS meeting in September 2014. 
Acceptance of the abstract for presentation at the EUGMS conference, and registration of the presenting author to attend the EUGMS and present the abstract (poster or oral) is a prerequisite for consideration for publication in JAMA.  

The Scientific committee of the Rotterdam congress, together with the Academic Board of the EUGMS will work together with JAMA in this process.  Publication in JAMA benefits the authors and the EUGMS since JAMA papers are read by approximately 500,000 readers each week and are extensively covered by the press. We encourage our members to submit their papers to the EUGMS  meeting and to JAMA. We strongly advise authors to start preparations for their full paper as soon as possible!
