It is my great honor and pleasure to extend our warm invitation to you on behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 15th World Congress of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 2022, organized by the International Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ISPRM) and the Portuguese Society of PRM (SPMFR).
In consideration of the ongoing CoViD-19 pandemic, the ISPRM together with the SPMFR Congress Organizing Committee decided to postpone the Congress from 2021 to 2022. The new dates are 3-7 July 2022 – Lisbon, Portugal. The venue remains the same – Centro de Congressos de Lisboa.
This is an unprecedented resolution that has become inevitable considering the pandemic situation. We took into account all the implications in terms of presence and safety, and hope to have a fantastic event in 2022.
ISPRM is the highest academic organization of PRM around the world and the ISPRM congress plays a major role in enhancing medical technology, strengthening academic exchanges and promoting collaborative research and exploration in rehabilitation medicine and related disciplines.
Regarding abstract submissions: If you have already submitted, we will save your abstract in our abstract submission system for the rescheduled Congress. You will be able to log in to edit your abstract. Alternatively you can ask us to withdraw it. The abstract submission platform will remain open.
Regarding Proposals submission: we will save your proposal in our submission system for the rescheduled Congress.
If you’ve registered and paid for ISPRM2021 we will transfer your registration to the new dates.
ISPRM 2022 is the major world PRM event in 2022. To host an ISPRM congress has become a dream and we are aware of the large task and huge responsibility of the Congress Committees. Simultaneously, remembering the European Congress of PRM held in Estoril, Portugal, 2016, we feel confident that we will organize an outstanding and unforgettable academic, scientific, networking and social event, respecting the ISPRM standards and the congress rules, to facilitate the spread and exchange of knowledge, skills and attitudes between experts, researchers, clinicians and trainees, and aiming to continue developing the ISPRM and PRM.
Apart from a perfect scientific program, we will work hard to organize a range of cultural activities. The social program is being carefully planned. You cannot miss the opening ceremony and the congress networking dinner!
You will feel warmly welcomed in Portugal and by the Portuguese. Lisbon is ready for you. Enjoy Lisbon and the surroundings, and feel at home.
ISPRM 2022 will be an unforgettable event, we will be together again!
See you in Lisbon, in 2022!
