Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the Norwegian Paediatric Orthopaedic Society, it is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 37th EPOS Annual Meeting to be held in Oslo, Norway April 11 – 14th, 2018. This is the first time the yearly EPOS Meeting is being arranged in Norway and we are honoured and pleased to have the opportunity to host this event which has become so important to paedriatic orthopaedic specialists all over Europe.
Oslo lies between the Oslofjord and surrounding hills and has more than 600.000 inhabitants. The combination of modern city life, world-known museums and attraction, and access to outdoor activities makes Oslo a unique destination. As meeting venue we have booked Oslo Congress Centre, which is ideally located in the heart of the city, within walking distance from all city hotels, the City Hall and the harbour area.
We would also propose, especially if you have not been to Norway before, that you set aside a few days before or after the Congress to see more of our beautiful country. Mid-April is spring-time in Norway and it is usually a pleasant temperature, but it can still be perfect conditions for skiing in the mountains.
Our Society is growing with significant increase of younger colleagues. This fact makes us certain that based on your submitted abstracts Reading and Scientific Committee will prepare excellent scientific program. In addition, there will be the Pre-meeting Course with the topic DDH – you certainly shouldn’t miss.
We are looking forward to seeing you all in Oslo in April, 2018.
Chairman of the Local Organizing Committee
