Annual Meeting 2017


Traditinally, our Annual Meeting takes place at De Werelt in Lunteren (Westhofflaan 2 • 6741 KH Lunteren).

Different from other years, in addition to the oral presentations we will have poster presentations and a joint symposium with the NBTE.

In follow-up of last year's Annual Meeting, results of the 'Beer-Coaster-Competition-Collaboration' will be awarded. You can find the tentative program here (abstracts will be send by email prior to the meeting and are available online for members upon login).
