It will be held in Tampa, Florida from the 21st to the 24th of February 2018 (the meeting starts at 1:00 on the 21st, and ends at noon on the 24th).

Top speakers internationally will present their latest studies and share their knowledge about the sacroiliac joint, with the goal of bringing the SIJ community to the next level of understanding. On the afternoon of the 21st, there will be a review of the SIJ field for those who are not yet familiar with the diagnosis and surgical treatment of SIJ disease. On the morning of the 24th, there will be a cadaver workshop at CAMLS learning center, teaching the different approaches to the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) and showing the latest developments of SIF devices and fusion techniques.
