The 15th International Congress on Neuromuscular Diseases (ICNMD) and the 16th World Congress of the International Society for Diseases of the Esophagus (ISDE) are coming to Vienna in 2018.
From July 6-10, 2018 up to 1,000 participants from all over the world will meet at the Vienna Hilton Hotel for the 15th International Congress on Neuromuscular Diseases (ICNMD) to discuss the latest advances in the treatment, healing and palliative care of muscular, nervous and neuromuscular junction disorders. Hosted every two years by the World Federation of Neurology and the Research Group for Neuromuscular Diseases, the ICNMD includes teaching units, plenary sessions, workshops and poster meetings. The last two events were held in Nice in 2014 and in Toronto in 2016.
From September 16-19, 2018 the University of Vienna will host the 16th World Congress of the International Society for Diseases of the Esophagus (ISDE), where around 1,000 participants will focus on the latest treatment approaches. “The most recent congress took place in Singapore in 2016, setting a new record with around 800 delegates and almost 700 scientific contributions. We are already working flat out to ensure that we create a high-level information and networking platform for specialist esophageal surgeons, gastroenterologists, pathologists and oncologists in Vienna in 2018,” confirms Prof. Michael Rolf Müller. Responsible for organizing the Vienna meeting, he is aiming to sharpen the focus on interdisciplinarity and interactivity while increasing the involvement of younger participants.
