The ESSR 2019 local organising committee has reached out to the AMSIG community to encourage international participation in their upcoming ESSR meeting in Lisbon:

On behalf of the ESSR 2019 local organising committee:

We have the honour and the pleasure to announce the next Annual Scientific Meeting of the European Society of Musculoskeletal Radiology, in the wonderful city of Lisbon.

For 2019 we are especially reaching out to our international partners as the local organising committee has arranged a very special session "INTERNATIONAL SESSION – Discovering new worlds".  This is to foster the already well working cooperations around the globe and combining them with the historical path of Portugal.

We would be very honoured to have large attendance of our worldwide Colleagues and to welcoming them to our ESSR congress next year.

> Abstract submission still possible until January 8, 2019
> Early Bird Registration possible until mid March 2019

The Pre-Congress days on June 26 & 27 will include an ultrasound workshop, a dedicated workshop on MSK Interventions and Master Class on Hip Imaging.

The scientific programme on June 28 & 29 will focus on Hip and advanced MSK imaging and we will be reviewing the most significant advances in musculoskeletal imaging with an emphasis on the hip joint, artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge topics. A good mix of refresher courses, subcommittee themes, keynote lectures, interactive sessions and state-of-the-art lectures will welcome this year’s participants.

A second lecture stream will cover a wide range of themes in MSK radiology, such as Sports, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Pediatric, Tumours and Imaging Guided Interventions.
