Meet-the-expert sessions on 20 key topics to enhance scientific programme of IOFWCO-ECCEO10
Date:3/29/2009

The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (ESCEO) will hold a joint global congress, IOF WCO- ECCEO10, in Florence, Italy from May 5-8, 2010.

Complete programme information, online registration and abstract submission will be available on www.iofwco-ecceo10.org .

IOF WCO-ECCEO10 will be an excellent forum for interaction and the exchange of ideas among researchers and clinicians as well as specialists from allied health fields. It will offer an overview of the most recent developments and cutting-edge research in the pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, as well as policy related issues such as health economics.

Offering a broad global perspective, the scientific programme will provide a mix of stimulating plenary lectures on 'hot' topics in the field and more clinically-oriented meet-the-expert sessions led by world experts. There will also be poster presentations, late breaking news, satellite symposia, and a large exhibition area.

Meet-the-expert sessions to be led by world experts:

Each day specialists will lead exchanges on 20 key topics. Small groups, on a first come first served basis, will be encouraged to not only ask questions but to also provide feedback about their own experiences. The following topics and speakers are scheduled:
