Download announcement 

Dear colleagues and friends,
We cordially invite you to the 22nd Annual Meeting of the BSMO, the annual opportunity to gather as a community, exchange ideas and engage in cooperation. This year, we have adapted the schedule of the meeting: while maintaining the major topics, we have tried to concentrate topics of clinical relevance on Saturday. Abstracts on any topic are welcome and you don’t have to be a junior member to submit, as long as you feel like one. For educational purposes junior members will have priority for oral presentations. Challenging and educational case reports which relate to new therapies will also be considered.

Looking forward to meet you at this exciting meeting on February 14 and 15!

Peter Vuylsteke, President

Sylvie Rottey, President elect
Joelle Collignon, Vice President
