EORS 2021 invites symposia proposals in all areas of orthopaedic, musculoskeletal, and trauma research, development, and clinical translation. Symposia proposals with educational and societal impact are also welcomed.

The deadline for the presentation of SYMPOSIA has been extended to 30 MARCH 2021!  If you are interested in submitting a symposium proposal, please complete the proposal form and submit it to 

Chair(s) of successful symposium proposals will be notified by email by 15 April 2021.

The symposium chair(s) should obtain written confirmation from the invited / leading speaker(s). The symposium chair(s) can also act as invited speaker(s). The symposium chair(s) confirm that will register and attend the conference and chair the symposium, should it be accepted.

EORS 2021 retains the right to merge similar symposium proposals.

The symposia proposals will be evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:

  • Relevance to orthopaedic / musculoskeletal / trauma research;
  • Scientific / technological / clinical / educational / societal impact;
  • Diversity of the groups represented.

Due to budget constraints, the EORS 2021 will not provide financial support for symposium chair(s) and speaker(s); all symposium participants must register for the conference.

Each symposium will be 60 or 90 minutes in duration.

Symposium formats are:

Symposium Format A
4 talks for approx 10 min 40 min
Discussion 20 min
Duration 60 min
Symposium Format B
6 talks for approx 10 min 60 min
Discussion 30 min

Allotted time for each talk should not exceed 15 minutes.

EORS2021 thanks you for your interest in proposing a symposium and supporting EORS activities.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Rome.
