WCO-IOF-ESCEO MILAN: abstract submission deadline on January 15

Showcase your research findings to the world’s largest audience of musculoskeletal disease experts at WCO-IOF-ESCEO MILAN 2015.

In 2015 researchers and clinicians from around the world will convene in Milan, Italy for the World Congress on Osteoporosis, Osteoarthritis and Musculoskeletal Diseases (WCO-IOF-ESCEO MILAN 2015). This is the key annual forum for the presentation of new research and clinical advances in the fight against musculoskeletal diseases.

The Congress, hosted by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (ESCEO), will be held from March 26-29, 2015. 

Professor John A. Kanis, IOF President and Co-chair of the Congress stated,

As the largest clinical and research forum in the bone, muscle and joint arena, this is the ideal Congress at which to present new clinical research and share findings with the field’s key opinion leaders.
