Message from the Conference President

Welcome to Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2010!

It is a pleasure and an honour to invite you to the Seventh SICOT/SIROT Annual International Conference on 31 August - 3 September 2010 in Gothenburg, Sweden (Göteborg in Swedish). Gothenburg is located in the heart of Scandinavia on the west coast of Sweden, it is a leading European event venue and English is widely spoken in the city. The conference will be held at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre, which is centrally located close to hotels, restaurants and shops. The congress centre has an in-house hotel with more than 700 rooms and there are more than 6,000 hotel rooms within walking distance of the congress centre, ranging from budget category to first-class hotels. Gothenburg can also offer a wide variety of activities for conference delegates and accompanying persons, including tours of the beautiful archipelago, golf and cultural events.

The Seventh SICOT/SIROT Annual International Conference will be organised as a combined meeting with the Swedish Orthopaedic Association (SOF) and a wide range of topics will be covered in the scientific sessions and by plenary speakers, so there will be something of interest for everyone. The commercial exhibition will be comprehensive. We are working hard to make the conference a high-quality scientific and educational event, as well as a memorable gathering in the city of Gothenburg.

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee and the Swedish Orthopaedic Association, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you and hope that you will come to Gothenburg and the Seventh SICOT/SIROT Annual International Conference on 31 August - 3 September 2010. We look forward to seeing you at the conference.

Kind regards,

Prof Björn Rydevik
Conference President
