Join us in Bruges


Dear colleagues,

The Royal Belgian Society for Rheumatology takes great pleasure in announcing the 21st Belgian Congress on Rheumatology, taking place in Bruges on 27-29 September, 2017.

The congress will take place at the impressive Belfry, located on the market square. Situated in the very heart of the city, this medieval bell tower with its carillon of 47 melodious bells will be the unique setting of the 21st edition of our annual Congress.

The KBVR-SRBR also has the pleasure to invite you to submit an abstract and present your scientific work at the 21st Belgian Congress on Rheumatology.

All topics in the area of rheumatologic research are welcomed. We would be pleased to receive proposals representing every field of our participants’ interest. 

Your abstract should be submitted as a word document (max 3/4 page A4, font: Calibri 11) only by email to Mrs. Myriam Schreurs: srbrkbvr@skynet.be

The deadline for abstract submission is 25 June, 2017. All abstracts will be displayed as posters with a reviewer tour hosted during the congress. Consequently, we remind you that the presence of the presenting author is required in order to contribute to the discussions during this tour. The scientific committee will further select a limited number of abstracts for oral presentation. 

The ‘Thieves Market’ has now secured its permanent time slot in the programme. For this session - dedicated to assistants and young rheumatologists - we look forward to receiving your most remarkable clinical cases! The best cases will be the core of the ‘Thieves Market’.

We hope to welcome you to BCR’17 in Bruges and remain, 

Yours sincerely, 

Valérie Badot
Scientific Organiser
