1-3 October, Lyon, France

Welcome Message from the President

Phil Sell, MSc, FRCS
University Hospitals of Leicester and Nottingham University Hospitals United Kingdom
President of EUROSPINE 2014

There is a unique flavour to EUROSPINE, and each Annual meeting is different and special.
Where else could the elements of ‘Spine, wine and dine’ be so harmoniously matched

Lyon is a perfect venue, with an established track record of hosting major conferences and specifically medical and spine meetings. The members of EUROSPINE relish the interaction and symbiosis between the elite scientific meeting and the other ingredients of a good Congress.

A mark of the success of our EUROSPINE meetings is the high proportion of participants that come back for more. Abstracts submissions are reviewed in a ‘blinded’ way by multiple reviewers. Only about 10% are accepted for the main podium, this harsh but fair policy makes for high quality and integrity of presented material.

Live educational events have many components. There are podium sessions, ‘Quick-fire’ short papers and e-posters. Lunch time workshops add to the educational content. Providing CME accreditation involves meeting the high standards of EACCME.

This meeting is about giving you, our important partners, the best of environments for networking. The multicultural diversity of Europe coupled with International delegates from China, South America and the rest of the Globe makes a superb melting pot for fresh ideas in science and technology. As the President of EUROSPINE it is my honour and pleasure to welcome you to ‘un beau mélange’.
