17th SICOT
Trainees Meeting


Moscow, Russia


14-16 May 2012



Welcome Messages 

Prof Cody Bunger, SICOT Immediate Past President

The 17th SICOT Trainees’ Meeting is to be held in Russia for the second time. We had a successful experience with the 13th Trainees’ Meeting in St. Petersburg in 2002. Russia has a long tradition of being a highly active country in terms of orthopaedic research. As the capital of the Russian Federation and its scientific centres, Moscow has much to offer our young colleagues. As well as its rich scientific heritage, the rich cultural intrigue of this city will most certainly have their anticipated magical effect on our guests. We look forward to seeing you in Russia!

Prof Sergei Mironov, President of AOTRF

On behalf of the Association of Orthopaedics & Traumatology of the Russian Federation, it is my proud privilege to cordially invite you to participate in the 17th SICOT Trainees’ Meeting. We had been waiting 10 years for this wonderful opportunity to welcome orthopaedic surgeons from all over the world to Russia for the second time. This beneficial decision of SICOT is a great honour for our Society and personally for each Russian orthopaedist. We will do our best to offer you the highest level of meeting, quality education and excellent conference hospitality. Leading experts from around the world will be on hand to present clinical and scientific research findings, answer questions, and share expertise and lively discussion with the participants. A multidisciplinary scientific programme was developed and we are sure that attendees will find the sessions both informative and stimulating. We are looking forward to seeing you, dear friends, in Moscow, capital of Russia, in May.

Prof Nikolay Zagorodniy, SICOT National Delegate of Russia

On behalf of the Local Organising Committee, it is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to the 17th SICOT Trainees’ Meeting. This meeting marks the second SICOT event in Russia within a 10-year period and we are truly proud to hold it. The 17th SICOT Trainees’ Meeting will present a diverse collection of topics in instructional lectures, paper presentations, discussion groups, posters, and technical exhibitions. We would like you to take this opportunity not only to enjoy the remarkable city of Moscow, but also the whole of Russia, with its rich history and friendly people.
