ICCBH meetings provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of current basic and clinical science in the field of bone metabolism and bone mass in children, adolescents and young adults.
The International Conference on Children’s Bone Health (ICCBH) was started in 1999 by an international group of independent clinicians and researchers interested in bone metabolism and bone mass in children, adolescents, and young adults. Five conferences were organised successfully by members of the Organising Committee, the last being in Cambridge, UK, in 2009. In 2011 it was decided to approach an international association for administrative support and we have subsequently made an agreement with the European Calcified Tissue Society who will manage the conferences on the Organising Committee’s behalf.
Previous meetings have been held as follows:
23-26 June 2009, Cambridge, UK
21-24 June 2007, Montreal, Canada
11-14 May 2005, Sorrento, Italy
12-15 June 2002, Sheffield, UK
4-7 May 1999, Maastricht, Netherlands
Upwards of 300 attendees are expected at the 2013 meeting and will include:
