Welcome - 6th world congress 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to many restrictions in regards to travelling and the hosting of congresses by governments and health authorities around the world. While this situation continues to develop and people are getting vaccinated, it still remains unclear if it is possible to bring our professional community together for the 6th World Congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS2021) in November 2021. At the moment, the Dutch government still imposes strong restrictions on mass indoor events spanning multiple days. With local expert epidemiologists predicting another wave later in the fall, it is highly unlikely these restrictions will be lifted sufficiently to organize the high-quality interactive event we have been planning. Therefore, the Local Organising Committee, supported by TERMIS global Governing Board, has decided to make the conference digital!

We were very much looking forward to welcoming you here in Maastricht in person, hosting a vibrant and fruitful exchange of views in TERM science as well as offering a fun social program. However, we also have a responsibility to guarantee your safety during the conference, and currently the risks are too high, which forced us to make this decision.  

We are currently working on the new digital program and would like to inform you that the final program will be communicated in September 2021. Further details about the digital platform and how to pre-record your presentation or upload your poster, will also be sent to you soon. 

We would also like to inform you that changing the congress to a digital congress does not change your acceptance of your abstract and symposium in the program. Hence, we are looking forward to host you all on the online conference platform in November!

Registration update 

  • The registration module has reopened again as of today
  • All participants that have already registered for attending the congress physically will be automatically transferred to the digital congress. A new invoice for the digital congress, credit note for the physical congress and reimbursement of the difference in the fee will be send to you by email within two weeks.  
  • All speakers and chairs: please note that the deadline for registration is 8 September 2021. Registration is required before this deadline to be included into the final program.
  • For regular attendees who would like to participate to the conference without having an accepted abstract, registration will remain open till beginning of the conference.

6th World Congress 2021

We would like to warmly welcome you to the website of the 6th world congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS2021). On this website you will find all information necessary to attend the congress that will be held online from 15 - 19 November 2021.

The general theme of the congress is “Biologically inspired technology driven regenerative medicine”, which is fully reflected in the 9 parallel thematic sessions to which you can submit abstracts for oral and poster presentation. The congress program also consists of a number of special sessions, including national societies sessions, SYIS sessions, industrial sessions, clinical sessions, European Project sessions, lunch workshops, and our usual business plan competition.

The congress equally foresees ample opportunities for networking, including a social dinner, and a SYIS networking evening for young members.

We are looking forward to welcoming you all in the digital platform.
