The 24th Congress of the ESRS in Basel was a big success, with almost 1800 delegates from more than 60 different countries, and an exciting scientific programme composed of more than 1000 submitted abstracts, organized in 80 sessions, 5 teaching courses, 5 satellite symposia and, for the first time, 3 poster walks.
The merits for the scientific programme in Basel are to be attributed to the past Scientific Committee, whom we thank for all the work done, the great efforts and all the constructive suggestions.
The ‘new’ Scientific Committee was elected during the ESRS business meeting in Basel for a 2-year term. The committee should soon receive the congress report and the evaluation of the Basel meeting, which will be reviewed along with comments and suggestions provided by participants to members of the Scientific Committee. A list of improvements/changes/ideas will be generated and be submitted for consideration to the ESRS Board in preparation for the upcoming ESRS congress in Seville (Spain).
Looking forward to working with all of you,
Giovanna Zoccoli & Christoph Nissen (on behalf of the Scientific Committee)
