Annual RIMS Conference: 4-6 June 2020, Leuven (BE)
 

After careful consideration, the RIMS Board made a joint decision to postpone the RIMS Annual Meeting, originally scheduled for June 4-6, to the end of the year.

We appreciate the large number of submitted abstracts, which clearly indicates the interest of the rehabilitation community and the importance of the RIMS event. But the outbreak of the corona virus and the current developments made us decide not to organize the face to face meeting in June.

However, rest assured that the Board remains focused on delivering what is an important event for the community! We will keep up the good standards in organizing networking opportunities and educational events, as we do want to stay on top to enhance activity and participation for all people with MS whenever and wherever they need it!

And we would like to encourage you too to continue the good work, despite the crisis we are facing globally. Let us know where RIMS could be of any help, we are here for you.

Also in 2020, RIMS will continue to stimulate networking and provide opportunities for rehabilitation practitioners to interact, learn and share experiences with each other. We thus look forward to meeting you at the Annual Meeting at the end of the year! Sign up for the event using this link. Registration at early bird fee is possible until June 4.

We will get back to you as soon as we have more details, but recommend monitoring the official Symposium website www.rims-annualconference.org/leuven2020, as the latest updates are published there.

We thank you for your loyalty and commitment to RIMS!

PhD Session - Registration & Fees

A special programme for PhD Students takes place on Thursday June 4, 2020.
The PhD session Registration includes meeting materials, lunch and coffee breaks.
 
This is the perfect arena to meet experienced researchers and other PhD students working in the MS-field. We will give you the ability to practice your conference and presentation skills in a friendly atmosphere. Now it’s your chance to present your research ideas, semi-finished instruments and products, first study results etc. and get input from well-known and experienced researchers in the MS-field! We are looking forward to meet you all!​

The goal of this programme developed especially for PhD students is to network and to have the opportunity to share knowledge with other PhD students and a panel of experts. We encourage students to attend from the very start of their research project to the last year of their PhD, as this gives them the opportunity to develop their professional network and improve their presentation skills over time, and to receive feedback on their projects at different stages.

Nurse Training Programme

The RIMS Scientific Committee has decided to organize 4 Interactive Teaching courses, instead of 2 Teaching courses and a Nurse Training Programme.
 
They would like to give the choice to pick from all the sessions as the themes of this year's teaching courses are interesting for nurses as well.
