It is a great honour to host and organise the 35th Annual Meeting of the European Bone and Joint Infection Society in Oxford, United Kingdom, 1-3 September 2016.
The conference will be held in the historic Examination Schools in the centre of Oxford which we believe will give you a great opportunity to enjoy the city while also experiencing an interesting and stimulating conference. You will be able to visit many of the famous attractions in Oxford and we have arranged social events in prestigious venues around the city and University.
EBJIS is dedicated in the battle against infections in the musculoskeletal system and appeals not only to orthopaedic surgeons but also to microbiologists, plastic surgeons, infectious disease specialists, molecular biologists and material science specialists. Each year the annual EBJIS Conference grows bigger and gathers more than 500 participants from all over the world.
This year the conference will focus on patient management and particularly on how we can improve treatment and outcomes for these unfortunate people. The programme will be provided with keynote lectures, interactive workshops, free paper sessions, topic symposia and posters.
The principle topics for EBJIS 2016 are:
• Perioperative Care of the Infected Patient
• Osteo-articular Infection of the Foot and Ankle
• Novel Molecular and Imaging Tests in Bone & Joint Infection
• Treatment Approaches to Early and Late Prosthetic Joint Infections
• Optimizing Outcomes in Osteomyelitis
• Soft-tissue Management in MSK Infections
• Infection Networks and Registries
We hope the scientific programme will be of value to increase your knowledge, improve your future clinical work and build your friendships in the Society.
We look forward to welcoming you to Oxford.
On behalf of the local organising committee and EBJIS board,
Martin McNally, Local chair
