You will have the opportunity to enjoy the full experience of the 11th BIC International Conference in the extraordinary scenery of Venice.
This time the venue is rather prestigious: Scuola Grande di San Marco, enclosed in the Ospedale Civile SS. Giovanni e Paolo of Venice Lagoon. It is a venue that tells a lot about Venice extraordinary civilization. The hospital combines state-of-the-art medical care with culture, history, art and spirituality. In fact, what is today the city's main hospital was formerly the seat of one of Venice six confraternities, which had the mission of providing assistance and compassion to the poor and needy. But that's just one of the million historical anecdotes that you will encounter during your journey.
Of course, both the conference scientific sessions and the social events will be conducted in full compliance with the required safety measures related to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a medical professional you might already have received your vaccine, but we shall keep it as safe as possible for everybody's sake.
The Conference venue is located in the Sestiere of Castello, about 10 minutes' walking distance from the chosen hotel, the lovely Starhotels Splendid Venice – which is just a few steps away from Piazza San Marco.
We will cater for you the usual Conference package, plus a few perks:
We are eager to see you again, this time in Venice!
We understand that!
Given the current pandemic, the 11th BIC International Conference is going to be fully streamed online through our platform.
It will be easy to follow the event because, as per our usual BIC style, there is going to be only one plenary hall: if you follow the event in real-time, it will feel just like being there in person, as you will be able to interact with the faculty and also to ask questions. The live streaming will be available both from the mobile app and our platform.
The platform will also provide networking solutions for those who enjoy chatting with their peers and want to create a network even if in-person attendance is not possible.
Will you be on the go? The mobile app will provide the very same content of the desktop platform, on a portable device. Alternatively, you can also watch it all later, as all sessions are going to be available on-demand online for 3 months after the conference.
Obviously, we won’t be able to deliver the Walking Poster Session aperitif to your desk - but you can enjoy the session from your favourite home armchair. And you can interact, too. Not too bad!
Your online-only registration includes:
If you ever change your mind and want to attend in person, registrations can be integrated and switched. Easy as pie.
NOTE: The final format of the event will be confirmed in June.
If it will not take place in person, we will go ahead with a 100% online event.
