9th ISCAA World Congress 2017, Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria


"Learning from each other – pushing boundaries”

Dear Colleagues,

As already announced, the 9th ISCAA World Congress will take place from 9th to 12th September 2017 in the heart of the Alps: Innsbruck, Tyrol, Austria.
It is the home of both our Medical University (Medical University of Innsbruck) and Division of Clinical and Functional Anatomy, together with many museums, theatres, galleries and other important Austrian cultural and educational institutions.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee it is my sincere pleasure to invite you to the 9th International Symposium of Clinical and Applied Anatomy (ISCAA).

The theme of the Congress is “Learning from each other – pushing boundaries”.

We aim to present, discuss, analyse and debate all aspects of Clinical and Applied Anatomy!

It is our pleasure to invite specialists from all medical branches, from morphologists to clinicians, to increase our knowledge and to improve patient outcomes ultimately.
Online registration and abstract submission will start on 1st February 2017. We expect compelling lectures and posters in all areas of Clinical and Applied Anatomy.
Deadline of abstract submission is 30th June 2017.

The congress will take place in the centre of Innsbruck at University of Innsbruck´s School of Catholic Theology (Kaiser Leopold Saal, Madonnensaal) and will be organised by PDL (Congress Organizer). The meeting website www.iscaa-innsbruck2017.com provides all information including registration, scientific program, abstract submission, social program, details for hotel reservations etc. Please also follow us on Facebook: ISCAA 2017 Innsbruck.

Innsbruck has excellent transport connections (by train and car), including an airport only 15 minutes away from the town center and the congress venue.

Our elegant “Get together/Welcome reception" will be held on 9th September at University of Innsbruck's School of Theology! The traditional and legendary ISCAA Gala Dinner will be celebrated on 11th September at the "Restaurant Seegrube" at the "Nordkette" with a magnificent view over Innsbruck and the Tyrolean mountains!


We hope that the 9th ISCAA in Innsbruck, like all the past ISCAA Congresses before, will serve as a great opportunity to meet friends, to form new relationships, to educate ourselves and to communicate the important goal of Clinical and Applied anatomy:
“Learning from each other – pushing boundaries”.

Therefore, we are very much looking forward to welcome you in Innsbruck in September 2017.
