Following the success of last year’s NASSISMISS meeting, the two-day scientific meeting from the North American Spine Society (NASS), the International Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (ISMISS), and the Indonesian Spine Society (ISS) will return this autumn (15–16 September).
World-class speakers including Jeffrey Wang (Los Angeles, USA), Gilles DuBois (Toulouse, France) and NASS president Todd Wetzel (Philadelphia, USA) will take delegates through the latest technologies and techniques at the meeting. Innovative research will also be presented, with a deadline for abstract submissions set for 1 July.
“One of the most anticipated meetings in the field,” according to congress chairman Bambang Darwono (Jabodetabek, Indonesia), the event will also feature a two-day intensive cadaver workshop (13-14 September 2017) to give delegates hands-on training with the latest spinal technologies and techniques.
Sponsors have the opportunity to showcase their products at one of ten cadaveric workstations, offering delegates the opportunity to improve their skills and discover new devices in person. As well as interactive workstations, the two days will feature expert lectures and panel discussions. The workshop will place a spotlight on innovative products, educating physicians on optimal techniques, special features and the practical benefits of each system. NASSISMISS itself will also feature the opportunity to engage with physicians in-depth in the exhibition space and over lunchtime symposia.
In addition to symposia, booths and workstations, companies have the opportunity to support the workshop and conference through promotional space on the website, on materials such as badges, posters and the conference abstract book. The meeting will offer the chance to highlight innovative technology in-depth through a sponsored satellite symposium, as well as support the meeting’s gala dinner and internet café.
The meeting will take place in bustling, business-driven Surabaya, the capital of East Java and the second-largest city in Indonesia. A tourist hotspot, the city’s highlights include the House of Sampoerna museum, the Kapel Selam submarine and the historic Mesjid Ampel mosque. The city is ideally-located for travel around the beautiful East Java, giving visitors access to the protected Mount Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, as well as the world-renowned beaches and caves of the coastal region.
