The cutting edge of medical art

Surgical practices and research

Antwerp, Belgium, 12-13 October

Dear Colleagues,

It is our privilege and pleasure to invite you to the 27th European Congress of the Association Européene des Illustrateurs Médicaux et Scientifiques (AEIMS).

This year’s congress will be hosted by Biological and Medical Art Belgium (BIOMAB) at the University of Antwerp, Belgium 12 - 13 October 2018.

At this year’s congress, we have an exciting program with the emphasis on Surgical and Dissection Skills with some promising presentations and workshops.

Student scientific illustrators are especially encouraged to bring their portfolios and present their artwork during the portfolio discussions, as well as during the breaks in between activities.

It is a tradition for the yearly AEIMS Meeting to organize a Salon of student and professional artwork to display and to share what we all have been creating. We invite you all (students and professionals) to submit your artwork for the exhibition digitally. We will take care of the printing.
Continuing last year’s AEIMS congress, we will feature a silent auction of the artwork that is submitted for the exhibition. Furthermore, an AEIMS prize for best entry to the exhibition will be awarded to one student and one professional.

We are looking forward to welcome many colleagues from all over the world in order to make this 2018 AEIMS Congress a great success.

Join us at #AEIMS18 in Antwerp – packed full of spotlight and educational sessions, social networking events and workshops focused on Surgical and Dissection Skills.
More news and registration forms will be published on the AEIMS and BIOMAB Websites within a couple of weeks. So keep a close eye on our websites!

With our warmest regards,

On behalf of AEIMS and the BIOMAB team
Pascale Pollier-Green, President AEIMS
Francis Van Glabbeek, President BIOMAB
