RIMS Digital Conference, December 4-5, 2020

Thanks to the RIMS Organising Committee and our loyal RIMS community we managed to organise our main RIMS activity in 2020, the RIMS Annual Conference! On behalf of RIMS, we would like to thank the delegates and faculty for making the Annual Conference "Collaborate and Engage in Personalised Rehabilitation" a success.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were forced to organise a digital meeting. However, we maintained to keep the authentic atmosphere during our interactive programme. We virtually welcomed 250 attendees from 29 international countries!

Congratulations to Sarah El Walsh (AU) who won the Best Oral Presentation and to Verónica Gemma García Marti (ES) for winning the Best Poster Award.

We are happy to announce that the recordings of the lectures will be accessible for 1 extra month (until February 12) for all those who registered for the conference.

Save the date - Next Annual RIMS Conference - November 25-27, 2021

Our next Annual Conference will take place from November 25 - 27, 2021! We will soon communicate about the topic and format of the Conference.
