Dear ,

Did you already submit your symposium ideas for ISHAM Amsterdam 2018?

It is our aim to present a maximally wide range of exciting topics on human and animal health for the 20st Congress in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 30 June – 4 July 2018. You are invited to submit your proposals for symposia. Deadline for submission of proposals is 1 March, 2017. Individual abstract submission will be early 2018. See you in Amsterdam, don’t miss this major event!

Are you mentally prepared for Amsterdam?

It is a city of extremes. If you come with your own Ferrari, we recommend shopping in the PC Hooftstraat. For Young-ISHAM members with not too much money, there is a specialized peanutbuttershop, and a toothbrushshop and similar places that can make you happy for less than one euro. You can have your cocktail in a chic Skylounge with a view over the city, or grab a beer in a minute 16th century bar hidden in the old center. ISHAM will guarantee you a good time in this dazzling city, and will regularly highlight nice places to go and experience, before, during and after the congress.
