|SAVE THE DATE: SOSORT - IRSSD Combined Conference
May 25-28, 2016 Banff - Alberta - Canada
Deadline: December 11, 2015
Dear SOSORT Members,
Our annual meeting in Katowice has just finished, and I want to congratulate all of you for the huge success of this event. The scientific quality of the meeting was probably the highest we have ever had in our meeting, and this depends on you and your active participation. We are growing, attracting more researchers and more clinicians, becoming stronger and spreading the knowledge about the orthoepedic and rehabilitative treatment of scoliosis around the world.
For the next year we have a main target, that is reaching the Impact Factor for "Scoliosis Journal", that as you know is our own journal, successfully lead so far by Dr. Theo Grivas. It would be great to have the contribution of all of you with original papers so to increase the number of publications. This would really help a lot!
I would also like you to write to me for specific suggestions you have for the Society, some further goals that we can plan to achieve during the next 1-2 years. I mean something very practical and crucial for the SOSORT, but also something feasible. According to your suggestion it will be my work to realize it.
Thank you once again for your support and for having given me the chance to serve once again the Society as the President. That's a big honour for me.
