Dear colleagues and friends,

EORS is delighted to host the 8th tri-annual Combined Meeting of Orthopaedic Research Societies - CORS 2013 which will take place in the Congress Center of San Servolo, Venice (Italy) from the 13th to the 16th of October.

An exciting and informative scientific and social program is already in the works for the 2013 global summit of Orthopaedic Research. The CORS conference will provide a platform for clinicians, scientists, and industries from around the world to discuss current issues and innovations in the field of orthopaedics and related disciplines. The main three themes for CORS 2013 are:

1. Building global research networks with a special focus on challenges and solutions in the growing regions of Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Middle East.

2. Inter- and multi-disciplinary solutions to current orthopaedic research challenges as addressed by problem-focused alongside classic discipline-focused calls

3. Fostering young investigator talent by many innovative young investigator initiatives including dedicated awards, YI-only events or session co-moderation

On behalf of the EORS executive committee, we look forward to welcoming you to CORS 2013 in the unique setting of Venice, Italy.
