Focus area:

The key focus area of the congress is the inflammatory rheumatological diseases including the inflammatory joint diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and spondyloarthritis and gout, but also the connective tissue diseases and vasculitides. However, the conference will also cover more broadly, including degenerative diseases including degenerative back disease and osteoarthritis, sports medicine, osteoporosis, and comorbidities. There will be a special session for people interested in children with arthritis. The conference will include practical skills workshops including ultrasonography and various aspects of examination techniques (eg. joints and back). There will be a mixture of invited speakers, abstract presentations (both orally and as posters) with selected time for poster presentation.

The above may be somewhat modified during the course of the planning of the congress.
