It is with great pleasure that we announce that the next Annual RIMS Conference will take place from Thursday June 4 to Saturday June 6, 2020 in Leuven, Belgium. The Conference is organised in partnership with National MS Center Melsbroek and KU Leuven.

The  RIMS Conference is the main European event for healthcare professionals, researchers and patient representatives to share their knowledge and experiences and to collaborate on topics related to rehabilitation in Multiple Sclerosis.

In 2020, the conference main theme will be 'Collaborate and Engage in Personalised Rehabilitation' and focuses on the following 4 areas: Emerging rehabilitation research methodologies, Optimizing engagement, Translating knowledge into practice and Creating synergies to optimize practice & research.   

As in previous years, the Conference programme (Friday-Saturday in Leuven) will be preceded by Teaching Courses, Special Interest Group (SIG) meetings and a PhD session . These will be held on Thursday, June 4 in the National MS Center Melsbroek.

We look forward to welcome rehabilitation physicians and neurologists, nurses and therapists (e.g. exercise physiologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, social workers, speech and language therapists) and all professionals involved or interested in MS rehabilitation research and practice.
