FishBone 2017

We are proud to help co-organize FishBone 2017!

FishBone 2017 will be held the day prior to the ECTS Congress at the Salzburg Congress Center on May 12th, 2017 as part of the ECTS Pre-Congress Program. The workshop will be a day-long event open to clinicians, biologists and geneticists dedicated to bone research, with a focus on fish models of human skeletal disease. The workshop seeks to encour­age inter­ac­tion between estab­lished and poten­tial fish users and bone researchers from different disciplines. All presenters are encouraged to provide background to bring participants to a basic level of understanding, as well as to present new data.

Attendance of the ECTS Congress is not required for attendance of the FishBone Workshop. However, those attending the full ECTS Congress will have their FishBone abstracts automatically included into the ECTS program, and be able to present them in a ECTS poster cluster dedicated to fish skeletal models. This exciting step represents the first “official” inclusion of fish models as an independent component at a major bone society meeting.

Abstract submission is now open, and will end on February 22, 2017. Online registration, including options for hotel accomodations, will open on February 15, 2017. Please see the fishbone website ( for more details.

We look forward to seeing you Austria!
