41st European Calcified Tissue Society Congress (ECTS) 2014 Prague

  • Conference Call
  • It is a plea­sure of the Euro­pean Cal­ci­fied Tis­sue Soci­ety to invite you to ECTS 2014, to be held in Prague, the Czech Repub­lic, from 17 – 20 May 2014.

    The 2014 con­gress will offer a high qual­ity and diverse sci­en­tific pro­gramme of inter­est to both clin­i­cal and pre-​clinical sci­en­tists. With up to 2,500 clin­i­cians and researchers expected to join us from around the world we have com­posed a sci­en­tific pro­gramme of the high­est standard.

    High­lights will include the following:

    • An excit­ing pro­gramme of invited speaker lec­tures fea­tur­ing some of the world’s lead­ing experts in the field
    • Meet the pro­fes­sor sessions
    • Ded­i­cated events for new investigators
    • Joint ECTS/​ASBMR debate and lecture
    • Spe­cial day-​long clin­i­cal ses­sion high­light­ing advances in the man­age­ment of patients with bone-​related disorders
    • Well-​attended poster ses­sions with ded­i­cated poster view­ing time
    • A busy exhi­bi­tion area with lunch included in the del­e­gate fee
    • Company-​supported satel­lite sym­posia high­light­ing some of the lat­est devel­op­ments and research

    Abstract Submission

    Abstract Sub­mis­sion and Reg­is­tra­tion Opens: 1 Octo­ber 2013

    Authors will be noti­fied of the abstract deci­sions by the end of Feb­ru­ary to ensure the Early Bird Reg­is­tra­tion fees are open to all our suc­cess­ful abstract authors.

    Copyright

    • Sub­mis­sion of an abstract implies that it has been approved by all listed authors and trans­fer of copy­right to the ECTS becomes effec­tive when the abstract has been accepted for presentation.

    What is my commitment?

    • Sub­mis­sion of an abstract con­sti­tutes a com­mit­ment by the author(s) to present the abstract as accepted.
    • Expenses asso­ci­ated with the prepa­ra­tion, sub­mis­sion and pre­sen­ta­tion of an abstract are the respon­si­bil­ity of the presenter(s)/author(s).
    • No shows will be logged by the organ­is­ers. An author fail­ing to present accepted mate­r­ial at two or more con­gresses will be asked to reg­is­ter in order for their abstract to be con­sid­ered for accep­tance by the sci­en­tific com­mit­tee. If no reg­is­tra­tion is received their abstract(s) will be with­drawn prior to publication.

    Queries/​Withdrawals

    If you have any queries about the sub­mis­sion process or you wish to with­draw an abstract please con­tact the con­fer­ence secretariat

    Please note that abstracts may not be with­drawn after 28 Feb­ru­ary 2014, unless an accept­able expla­na­tion is received by the organ­is­ers. An exam­ple of an accept­able expla­na­tion would be the inabil­ity to repro­duce the data described in the abstract.

    Pub­li­ca­tion Opportunity

    • All accepted abstracts will be pub­lished online.
    • Abstracts will be pub­lished exactly as sub­mit­ted. Errors will not be amended by the organisers.
    • Instruc­tions for oral pre­sen­ta­tion and poster prepa­ra­tion will be e-​mailed to authors prior to the con­gress and will be avail­able on the con­gress website.

    ECTS Grants & Awards

    The Euro­pean Cal­ci­fied Tis­sue Soci­ety pro­vides grants and awards to fund research and to assist new inves­ti­ga­tors with expenses related to their projects. Since 2003, ECTS grant expen­di­ture has exceeded €2,000,000 thus sup­port­ing our mis­sion to pro­vide fund­ing for research into bone dis­or­ders and related top­ics. For fur­ther infor­ma­tion on indi­vid­ual awards visit the ECTS web­site.

    The fol­low­ing awards will be made dur­ing the 2014 Congress.

    ECTS Excel­lence in Research Lecture

    This award is given to one of the invited speak­ers at the con­gress in recog­ni­tion of his/​her out­stand­ing con­tri­bu­tions to research in the field of bone and cal­ci­fied tissues.

    ECTS Mike Hor­ton Basic/​Translational Award

    Pro­fes­sor Mike Hor­ton (1948−2010) was a hematologist-​turned-​scientist who made sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions in the bone field and beyond. He per­formed pio­neer­ing work in osteo­clast biol­ogy which resulted, among other things, in the recog­ni­tion of the alpha v beta 3 inte­grin as a ther­a­peu­tic tar­get for inhibit­ing bone resorp­tion. His warm per­son­al­ity and wide-​ranging inter­ests inspired many young researchers.

    This award, by nom­i­na­tion only, is open to indi­vid­u­als who have made a sig­nif­i­cant basic or trans­la­tional con­tri­bu­tion to the field of bone and cal­ci­fied tissue.

    ECTS Phillipe Bor­dier Clin­i­cal Award

    Dr Philippe Bor­dier (1927−1977) con­tributed sig­nif­i­cantly to the bone field by devel­op­ing bone his­to­mor­phom­e­try, which he applied to the analy­sis of sev­eral bone dis­eases. His work and dynamism in sci­ence has been recog­nised in Europe and the United States.

    This award, by nom­i­na­tion only, is open to indi­vid­u­als who have made a sig­nif­i­cant clin­i­cal con­tri­bu­tion to the field of bone and cal­ci­fied tissue.

    ECTS Iain T Boyle Award

    In mem­ory of Pro­fes­sor Iain T Boyle (1935−2001) who con­tributed greatly to the field of min­eral metab­o­lism and his work on osteo­poro­sis was known and acclaimed nation­ally and inter­na­tion­ally. The award is open to young sci­en­tists who have made sig­nif­i­cant progress and con­tri­bu­tion to the field of bone and cal­ci­fied tissue.

    ECTS/​Amgen Bone Biol­ogy Fellowship

    This 3-​year fel­low­ship pro­gramme is open to any ECTS mem­ber, clin­i­cian or sci­en­tist work­ing in the field of bone biology.

    Infor­ma­tion on Con­tin­u­ing Med­ical Edu­ca­tion (CME)

    ECTS 2014 in Prague (41st Euro­pean Sym­po­sium on Cal­ci­fied Tis­sues) is seek­ing accred­i­ta­tion by the Euro­pean Accred­i­ta­tion Coun­cil for Con­tin­u­ing Med­ical Edu­ca­tion (EAC­CME) to pro­vide up to 27 hours of Euro­pean exter­nal CME cred­its for med­ical specialists.

    Each med­ical spe­cial­ist should claim only those hours of credit that he/​she actu­ally spent in the edu­ca­tional activity.

    The EAC­CME is an insti­tu­tion of the Euro­pean Union of Med­ical Spe­cial­ists (UEMS, www​.uems​.net). Through an agree­ment between UEMS and the Amer­i­can Med­ical Asso­ci­a­tion, physi­cians may con­vert EAC­CME cred­its to an equiv­a­lent num­ber of AMA PRA Cat­e­gory 1 Cred­its ™. Infor­ma­tion on the process for con­vert­ing EAC­CME credit to AMA credit can be found at www​.ama​-assn​.org/​g​o​/​i​n​t​e​r​n​a​t​i​o​n​alcme. Live edu­ca­tional activ­i­ties, occur­ring out­side of Canada, recog­nised by UEMS-​EACCME for Euro­pean Con­tin­u­ing Med­ical Edu­ca­tion Cred­its (ECMEC) cred­its are deemed to be Accred­ited Group Learn­ing Activ­i­ties (Sec­tion 1) as defined by the Main­te­nance of Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Pro­gram of the Royal Col­lege of Physi­cians and Sur­geons of Canada.
