The 36th International Congress of the ISBT

December 12 - 16, 2020

Welcome to #ISBT2020!

ISBT 2020

The ISBT 2020 congress took place successfully between 12-16 December, featuring live and on-demand sessions, a virtual exhibition, workshops and of course lots of opportunities to network! It was a great experience, more information will be published on ISBT Education in the coming months.

Dear friends and colleagues,

Welcome to “ISBT In Focus”! Following on from the success of the “ISBT 2020” virtual congress, and in the context of the ongoing pandemic, we have transformed our planned regional congress in Milan to a new type of online event. I thank SIMTI and the local and scientific organising committees for their hard work and enthusiasm, and we will defer our visit to Milan until it is safe to do so. 

Therefore, I invite you to participate in “ISBT In Focus”. The ISBT General Assembly will be held on 2 June, along with other highlights of the opening day. Over the subsequent themed days, we will explore a range of interesting topics, using state-of-the-art lectures and interactive sessions, short presentations and e-posters. Our corporate partners and meeting sponsors will also contribute content relevant to the theme of the day. 

Based on your feedback from the previous virtual congress, and to maximise opportunities for participation around the world, we will offer the themed sessions in two time-zones. Our Scientific Secretary and our two Vice-Presidents have been working with our Executive Director and the teams at ISBT Central Office and MCI to develop the program and provide flexible registration options.  

I look forward to hearing your feedback on our ongoing efforts to continue to share knowledge around the world. Please do get involved, and encourage your colleagues and students to join in too. See you there!

Erica Wood
