It is now time to look forward and organise the ECTS 2020 congress (https://www.ects2020.org/). We will host you in Marseille, the second largest city in France, and the main city in the historical province of Provence. The Vieux Port, the Palace du Pharo and Notre-Dame-de-la-Garde are waiting to be visited by the ECTS delegates in their free time. Save the dates and join us on 15 May for the Pre-Congress and 16-19 May 2019 for the main ECTS Congress. We will please you again with the best calcified tissue science in Europe and beyond.
See you in Marseille!!!
