Welcome Letter

​Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the French and Belgian Societies of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (SOFMER & RBSPRM) we cordially invite you to the 12th World Congress of the International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM) that will take place in Paris on July 8-12, 2018.

We are excited for an unforgettable experience that will combine the latest scientific advances with outstanding opportunities for fruitful discussions and cultural exchanges in a unique Parisian atmosphere.

Each morning, participants will meet in the Great Hall to hear sessions chaired by top experts on 9 hot topics chosen by the Scientific Committee. In the afternoons, you can choose from 6 parallel sessions including lectures from invited speakers and oral scientific communications. Throughout each day, you can participate in hands-on workshops, seminars, debates and "meet the expert" sessions.   

There will be a special track for residents, with a free convention on Sunday, and an "educational pathway" throughout the congress. The residents' track will focus on current educational topics in PRM, best-of Poster sessions, and many interactive educational opportunities. AJMER, the French Residents' association, will host the many residents from all countries and organize special networking events during the Congress. Please contact associationajmer@gmail.com for more information.

In the 5,000 square meters of the exhibition hall, you will meet many pharmaceutical and biomedical companies within the scope of PRM. An international innovation contest will be open to young researchers from start-up companies or universities. This competition aims to identify and reward any innovative, technical or service project that could reduce disability in terms of care, rehabilitation or improving the lives of disabled people.

This exciting programme will offer you the best of Paris and the French spirit. The call for abstracts will begin after the Buenos Aires Congress. 

We look forward to meeting you in Paris!
