16–20 May 2016 – SpineWeek 2016
The idea to have a joint meeting bringing together several spine societies at the same time and at the same place originated around the turn of the century.
The SpineWeek committee was mandated with the practical organization of such a conference, and this led to the first SpineWeek meeting which was held in Porto, Portugal in 2004. It was well received by individual participants, the involved scientific spine societies and by the supporting MedTech industry. Two more SpineWeeks followed: Geneva (Switzerland) in 2008 and Amsterdam (The Netherlands) in 2012.
One of the remarkable evolutions noted from one SpineWeek to the next, was the increase of participants coming from Asia. In fact, in Amsterdam more than half the attendees were Asian. This incited the SpineWeek committee to move east for the 2016 SpineWeek meeting, and we are pleased to announce the conference from 16 to 20 May, 2016 in Singapore.
Next to the usual participating spine societies such as the International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine (ISSLS), the North American Spine Society (NASS) and the Latin American spine societies (SILACO and BSS), we now welcome an array of Asian spine societies. SpineWeek meetings have been at the origin of many a scientific collaboration bringing together clinicians and scientists from around the world and from very different scientific societies.
