We have assembled a European Scientific committee, and are considering plenary speakers (including clinicians and basic / translational scientists) from all fields of tissue engineering along with keynotes (targeting a mix of young and experienced speakers). The call for symposia is out with a deadline of the end of August 2016, with an extra target on societies, foundations and networks to collaborate with us. The call for abstracts will come in September. We are and initiating plans for SYIS activities and the Industrial day. Based upon the 800 attendees in Uppsala in 2016 we expect 1000 to 1200 attendees to participate, with about 20-25% international (non-European) attendees. TERMIS-EU is the premier event for the dissemination of cutting edge research in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and in 2017 it will be held at the premier congress city, Davos, which is also a Science city hosting 5 research institutes, several clinics for patient treatment and our own well equipped hospital. This will be the highest meeting of TERMIS at 1560M altitude and we aim to reach the highest level of scientific presentations, organization and attendance for a TERMIS meeting.
