The event on April 23-24 is dedicated to experts and persons interested in the subject of surgical implants. The program covers topics in the fields of materials, surfaces and processes, and includes expert talks as well as short presentations.

In 2012 the conference will be organized in cooperation with the Swiss Society for Surface Technology SGO-SST. The Annual Conference and General Meeting of the SGO-SST will take place in conjunction with this event. The focus of the 2012 conference will be on implant surfaces with special attention given to the following sub-topics:

  • Physical and chemical surface modification
  • Biological interactions of implant surfaces
  • Process validation and regulatory affairs
  • Clinical aspects from implant surfaces

This event offers also possibilities for discussions and networking at the tabletop exhibition and sponsors display. The goal of this event is to promote the exchange of know-how and to trigger collaborations between implant producers, subcontractors and end users.
