Welcome Message

Welcome to ICS 2018

Dear Friends & Colleagues,

On behalf of the Delhi Spine Society, we have the pleasure of inviting you to the Instructional Course in Spine (ICS 2018), being organized from 9th to 11th August 2018, at Radisson Blu, Amritsar, Punjab. For the first time, we will have 3 days of Academic extravaganza. With the past experience of ICS at Shimla and Udaipur and two ASSICON's at Delhi, we will keep up to your expectations. The Venue hotel is especially designed for such events and we have booked the whole hotel for the event.

The theme of the course is 'Tumors and Minimally Invasive Spine surgery.' We also have the privilege of the participation of the Korean Spine Society for this course . Two of their faculty will grace the event. With major advances in tumor surgery and minimally invasive spine surgery we felt that focus on these two topics will be most appropriate. For the young surgeons and the trainees this will be an opportunity to learn the new techniques. Their participation in this forum will give them a unique chance to interact with well acknowledged speakers/faculties from across the globe, who will share their experiences and vision. The ICS 2018 aspires to assemble the very best of spine surgeons, along with the pharma and the spine manufacturing industry showcasing their best and the latest in the treatment and care of spine surgery.

Apart from the rich conference content and opportunity to interact with colleagues from many different countries, the meeting also promises to showcase India's cultural diversities and a special chance to visit some of India's tourist highlights during the conference as the organizing committee will be organizing a visit to the Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh and Wagah Border. Amritsar is very well connected by railways and air. It has an international airport with well-connectedinternational flights. The website www.ics2018.in is up and running. We are striving to promote the government's green initiative and will also have maximum online communication.

We look forward to welcoming you all with your families to this Holy City of Amritsar.
