Over the next three days delegates can look forward to hearing about many exciting new developments as well as having the opportunity to meet leading researchers and clinicians from around the world."

Preceded by a special symposium on similarities and differences in osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, ESCEO13-IOF opening ceremony featured an Honorary Lecture on bone deformities in antiquity by Professor Vronique Dasen, followed by the presentation of prestigious awards.

The Congress will continue with eight plenary lectures by leading experts in the bone field, including Ego Seeman, Eric Orwoll, Steffen Gay, Robert E. Coleman, Mary Bouxsein, Eugene McCloskey, Colin Farquharson, and Cyrus Cooper. Eleven special symposia will focus on the latest advances in a wide variety of areas, including treatment, guidelines, vitamin D, quality of life in frailty and sarcopenia, biological markers in osteoarthritis, secondary fracture prevention, and other topics of relevance to every day clinical practice.
