Join us in Spa

Dear colleagues,

The Royal Belgian Society for Rheumatology takes great pleasure in announcing the 22nd Belgian Congress on Rheumatology, taking place in Spa on 26-28 September 2018.

The congress will take place at the Centre Culturel de Spa, located in the very heart of the city of Spa famous for its several natural mineral springs.

The KBVR-SRBR also has the pleasure to invite you to submit an abstract and present your scientific work at the 22nd 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) by email to Mrs. Myriam Schreurs: srbrkbvr@skynet.be

The deadline for abstract submission is 1 May 2018. 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 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’.

Together with the KBVR-SRBR Board members, we hope to welcome you to BCR’18 in Spa and remain,


Yours sincerely,


Vanessa Smith
