Dear colleagues,

It's with great pleasure that we welcome you at the  Annual Conference of RIMS 'Crossing the Interface to Explore New Possibilities', which will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from Thursday 20 June until Saturday 22 June 2019. The Conference is organised in partnership with the MS Centre Ljubljana.

The RIMS Conference is the main European event for Healthcare professionals, researchers and patient representatives to share their knowledge and experiences and collaborate on topics related to rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis. In 2019, the conference main theme is 'Crossing the Interface to Explore New Possibilities' and focuses on the following 5 areas: Beyond Europe, Integrated Care, Technical Opportunities, The Sociological Perspective and Lessons from the Laboratory.

We look forward to welcoming rehabilitation physicians and neurologists, nurses and therapists (e.g. exercise physiologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, social workers, speech and language therapists) and all professionals involved or interested in MS rehabilitation research and practice.

We hope you will enjoy the conference and that your time spent in Ljubljana with like-minded colleagues will be personally rewarding.
