Invitation

Welcome
it is our pleasure inviting you to the 21st International Bone Densitometry Workshop (IBDW) and the 7th European Symposium on Ultrasonic Characterization of Bone (ESUCB).

The workshop will be held from June 26 to 30, 2017 in the Monastery Banz, Germany.
It is our honor to host this symposium and to bring together academic and industrial researchers from all over the world to present scientific advancements in the assessment of bone and other musculoskeletal tissues. For the first time, the International Bone Densitometry Workshop will be conducted jointly with the European Symposium on Ultrasonic Characterization of Bone to open new dimensions in quantitative musculoskeletal imaging, to inspire new ideas and to initiate collaborations.

The scientific program topics include quantitative musculoskeletal imaging from the nanoscale to the whole body, from mouse to humans, from cells and tissue matrix to whole organs, multimodal imaging and advanced modeling, analysis techniques in musculoskeletal research and clinical routine to improve diagnosis, therapy control and therapeutic endpoint decisions.

Banz Abbey (German: Kloster Banz) with its 900 years of history as a former Benedictine monastery, is located in the valley of the River Main in Upper Franconia in southern Germany. Founded in 1070 it served as a monastery for more than 700 years, it is now mainly used as a conference center (http://www.hss.de/bildungszentren/kloster-banz.html).

In the spirit of a monastery - contemplation, discussion, scholarship, research and education - one focus of the workshop will be the promotion of young researchers. In addition to high-level scientific sessions to disseminate and discuss latest results and future directions, ample time between and after the scientific sessions will be reserved to promote informal discussion among scientists and young researchers. Moreover, a number of how to workshops that serve as introductions into various techniques used in the field will be organized.

We look forward to seeing you in the Monastery Banz in 2017!

Very sincerly,

Kay Raum, Tobias Bäuerle and Klaus Engelke
