Welcome to #ECTS2020 

Join us in Marseille for the 47th edition of the annual meeting of the European Calcified Tissue Society! ECTS 2020 will take place from 16-19 May 2020 in Marseille, France, with the pre-congress day on 15 May 2020.

ECTS serves as a forum for researchers and clinicians working in the musculoskeletal field to discover and discuss the latest advances and controversies in research and in the daily care of patients.

ECTS 2020 will focus on the best and latest science with renowned leaders in our field. We have implemented more opportunities for discussions and beside our traditional symposia and workshops, there will also be debates, expert discussions and interactive sessions.

The ECTS congress expands and provides the ECTS committed members with an exciting pre-congress day on Friday 15 May 2020. This day is dedicated to a number of activities that will delight the delegates in a lively and friendly atmosphere.
