It is a great honour to host and organise the 37th Annual Meeting of the European Bone and Joint Infection Society, which for the first time will take place in Helsinki, Finland on 6-8th September 2018. The conference will be held in the white marble and granit faced Finlandia Hall, an iconic building and a masterpiece created by our world famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. The congress venue is situated beautifully in a park near the sea in the centre of Helsinki, in the vicinity of several hotels.

Helsinki, which was established in 1550, is today a modern and urban city offering both historical experiences, as well as novel architectural surroundings. Situated close by the sea the nature is always present both on water and land. The Helsinki region offers many possibilities for entertainment, shopping, recreation, as well as trips to nearby cities and neighbour countries.

The conference will bring together experts, practitioners and companies involved in the treatment of bone and joint infections. Professionals attending the conference will benefit from high-level scientific presentations, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities. The scientific programme will be provided with keynote lectures, free paper sessions, industry symposia and posters.
The main conference theme is: Infection After Trauma

The expected topics for EBJIS 2018 are:

-Prosthetic joint infection: diagnosis, treatment, prevention
-Traumatology - treatment of bone infection in tibia, pelvis, ankle and calcaneus
-Plastic Surgery - role of flap reconstruction in bone and joint infections, reconstruction of tissue defects after prosthetic joint infection of the knee
-Biomaterials - role of bone substitutes in the treatment of infected bone

We look forward to welcoming you to Helsinki.
