The abstract should be in English. The goal is to select all abstracts for oral presentation. However, if more abstracts are received than can be incorporated in the program, an interactive poster session will be organized in order to give every speaker sufficient time to present.

The final program will be published on the congres website

A description how to reach the conference center can be found on the website of the center,

The NVCB enhances bone research by the annual meeting, but also by providing travel grants, awards for the best bone and calcium-related PhD thesis and paper, and an award for the best presentation by a young investigator at the meeting of the NVCB. In 2018 a prize will be offered for the best thesis (1000 Euro): the Kyowa Kirin best thesis award. For attending please contact
