Submit an abstract

Every year, the BTS Board organizes a varied program dedicated to physicians, transplant coordinators, local coordinators and nurses involved in solid organ transplantation. The thematic sessions give you the opportunity to listen to Belgian and International experts. Take advantage of the opportunity to present your research during the abstract sessions. Parallel sessions dedicated for nursing are planned on Thursday. The report of the Transplant Coordinators Section and the different Advisory Committees will give you a complete overview of organ donation and transplant activities during the last year. Register and make sure you do not miss the biggest Belgian event of the year in transplantation.

This year, the congress is organized in the prestigious setting of the Royal Library of Belgium, located in the heart of the capital, close to the historic center of Brussels and its Grand Place. If you want to book your rooms at the special congress rate in the NH Carrefour de l'Europe hotel and immerse yourself in the Brussels atmosphere, please contact info@transplant.be.

Don't miss our very special social event on Thursday evening including a walking dinner in the famous Magritte Museum and a private guided tour for congress participants.

The venue is easily accessible by train or by metro (Central Station / Centraal Station). Parking is available if you are traveling by car (Parking Albertine-Square, Gerechtsplein, 16 Place de la Justice, 1000 Brussels).

Registration for the congress is open.
