Bioceramics 33

RMS Foundation

It is a great pleasure to invite you to Bioceramics 33, the 33rd conference and annual meeting of the International Society for Ceramics in Medicine (ISCM) which will take place from October 17 to 20, 2023 in Solothurn, Switzerland.

Bioceramics 33 will bring together scientists, industry representatives, and clinicians from across the globe to share the latest discoveries on the design, properties, processing, and use of ceramics and glasses in medicine. There will be a wide range of topics including orthopaedic, dental and soft tissue applications.

Located in the heart of Switzerland’s medical device industry, with one of the world’s highest number of MedTech jobs per capita, Solothurn is an ideal place to foster contacts between leading experts in the field. We are particularly excited to host Bioceramics 33 in Solothurn’s Landhaus, a unique historical venue in the picturesque baroque old town, offering accommodation and sightseeing within walking distance and Switzerland’s top tourist destinations easily accessible by public transportation.

We look forward to meeting you in October 2023!
