Scientific Programme

If you are looking for a place to make your voice heard, join us at IMSSB, a symposium that will go further beyond what is expected.  

You are the designer of your own scientific adventure. We provide our participants with pre-recorded events of the highest resolution, while they decide what image stays in the foreground, when they want to watch the presentation and when it’s time for a break. All of this is possible by using the video functions of our platform and thus benefiting from the smoothest visual experience.

IMSSB Schedule

The Check-In has been delayed until 12:00 in order to ensure Rapid Antigen Testing for the Participants before Check-In. Masks are mandatory at all IMSSB events!
