ICOBR 2012


    Dear Friends and Colleagues,

    On behalf of the Chinese Society of Osteoporosis and Bone Mineral Research (CSOBMR) of the Chinese Medical Association (CMA); the International Bone and Mineral Society (IBMS), and the International Chinese Hard Tissue Society (ICHTS), we are honored to invite you to the 6th International Conference on Osteoporosis and Bone Research 2012 (ICOBR2012) to be held during Oct 18-21, 2011 in Xi’an, China.

    We will invite world- renowned professors and researchers to share their experience with us at the conference. Both educational and scientific programs will be arranged in the ICOBR2012. The meeting will offer all of us extensive review and update in the cutting edge researches in this promising field.

    With the involvements from the three world-influential scientific societies, CSOBMR of CMA, IBMS, and ICHTS, we believe the conference will cover all aspects of common interests and hot topics in the field of osteoporosis and bone mineral research.

    Xi’an, located in central-northwest China, records the great changes of the country just like a living history book. Called Chang'an (meaning the eternal city) in ancient times, Xian is one of the birthplaces of the ancient Chinese civilization in the Yellow River Basin area. As the eastern terminal of the Silk Road and the site of the famous Terracotta Warriors of the Qin Dynasty, Xi’an has won a reputation all over the world. More than 3,000 years of history including over 1,100 years as the capital city of ancient dynasties, have endowed Xi’an with an amazing historical heritage. Tourists marvel at the numerous historical sites and cultural relics in and around the city.

    Known as the leading city of China's Western Development Drive Program since 1990s, Xi’an is an important economic, cultural, industrial and educational center of the central-northwest region, providing visitors with modern and convenient facilities.

    We are sure you will have a pleasant stay in Xi’an.

    Looking forward to seeing you there.
