The Congress will provide to all delegates updated knowledge in the field of rheumatology and opportunity to present their latest research in the form of oral presentations and abstracts.

Sarajevo as the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina with its important hystorical role is a city where East meet the West offering multiethnicity and multiculturality values through centuries.
