We are very proud to be hosting this congress in one of the colleges of the oldest university in the english speaking world in the historic town of Oxford, United Kingdom.
Founded in 1893, St. Hilda’s College offers a unique and picturesque setting for the conference. It is set within stunning grounds running down to the River Cherwell, with beautiful views over the Botanic Gardens, Christ Church Meadow and the spires of the city. The college is located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, just off one of Oxford’s busy central transport hubs and is easily accessible by car and by public transport.
We hope everybody will have a beneficial congress and an enjoyable stay in Oxford. The congress has been arranged on a monday and tuesday so that travel and leisure time can be enjoyed in Oxford on the weekend before the conference. We hope that when you leave Oxford, it will be with additional shared scientific knowledge, motivated enthusiasm to commence, consolidate and promote hand injury prevention strategies, and happy memories. But our greatest hope is that this meeting will be an important step towards reducing hand injuries.
We look forward to hosting you in Oxford, in September 2016.
