Welcome Address

Dear colleagues and friends,
We are honoured to announce the 13th International Congress on Spondyloarthritides, which will take place in Gent on 7 – 9 September 2022.
it will be a fully live congress at a new and great location, called De Bijloke.
De Bijloke is one of the historic hospitals of Ghent, an architectural jewel, which has been completely refurbished. The medieval infirmary now is the main Concert Hall (where for instance the Symphony Orchestra Flanders has its home base). The other meeting rooms with enthralling names such as the ‘Anatomical Theatre’ have also been completely renovated.

The Bijloke is located in the historic centre of Ghent and within walking distance from most hotels.
We sincerely hope to welcome you to the 13th International Congress on Spondyloarthritides and remain,
Yours sincerely,
Francesco Ciccia and Walter Maksymowych, Presidents
Dirk Elewaut and Filip Van den Bosch, Local Organisers
