After a hugely successful congress in London this year, we are already planning the 2017 congress in Edinburgh and, as always, we benefit greatly from your excellent suggestions for interesting and  topical sessions.

If you would like to submit a session, masterclass or training course idea to the committee, please complete this online form by 16 September 2016. Late submissions will not be considered.

Please do not use this form to submit poster abstracts. A separate call for poster submissions will be available in November 2016.

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 international congress will be taking place at Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC). The EICC is an award-winning centre of excellence. Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, located on the country’s eastern coast, and is the centre of Scottish history and culture. This unique city boasts various beautiful historic buildings while hosting stunning countryside a short distance away.
