2024 Call for Workshops
The ORS Scientific Program Committee is seeking workshop applications for the ORS 2024 Annual Meeting in a wide variety of topics which represent basic, translational, and clinical research, as well as innovative technologies.
Workshop categories for these 90-minute sessions include the following:
- Scientific Workshop – cutting-edge musculoskeletal research (i.e., The Role of The Immune System in Tendon Disease)
- Science and Technology Workshop – in collaboration with an industry partner (i.e., Additively Manufactured Implants – Cool parts, but how far have we advanced on material safety and characterization?)
- Crosstalk Workshop – highlighting interactions between clinical and basic approaches to musculoskeletal problems (i.e., Leveraging Multidisciplinary Expertise to Identify Patients at Risk for OA after Meniscal Surgery)
The goals of the workshop are:
- To educate our attendees with about exciting research and novel skills.
- To promote collaborative effect approaches to address orthopaedic/musculoskeletal diseases and treatment challenges.
Workshops focusing on aging, multi-organ/tissue crosstalk, artificial intelligence/big data, tissue regenerative medicine, stem cell biology, and translational research are encouraged.
The deadline for submission is now closed.
For more information and details please see the workshop application.
Decisions will be announced in May after a completion of external review and final selection by the ORS Scientific Program Committee.

2024 Call for Symposia and Other Ideas
The ORS Research Council is seeking ideas for Symposia, Back to Basics and Bench to Bedside sessions for the 2024 Annual Meeting in Long Beach, California, February 2-6, 2024.
ORS Symposia (90-minutes sessions) –
Symposia are proposed to engage the audience in a dialogue about a hot topic and/or emerging paradigm in orthopaedic science. Topics should bridge basic and clinical research, and integrate academic, health, regulatory and industry perspectives. Designed to be forward-looking.
These symposia could be initiated by the ORS Research Council, Program Committee, Research Sections and Research Interest Groups (RIGs), or ORS members. Please propose Topics (and Speakers) for these symposia.
Intended as a catalyst for the advancement of translational musculoskeletal science by connecting basic scientists within and across the various ORS disciplines. With panels of experts representing basic, translational, clinical, and regulatory perspectives. Seeking Speakers diversity from different institutions, disciplines, and gender.
We know that some symposia/panel discussions would benefit by including a speaker outside the orthopaedic or musculoskeletal field, or someone who may not be a member of the ORS. In this case, the Research Council will review the suggested topic speakers.
We encourage you to include a diverse, inclusive group of speakers on your list.
We will require Session Title, Clinical Relevance, up to 400-word description, and suggested Speakers.
Bench to Bedside Innovations and Advances (60 minutes)
Please propose Topics and Speakers for innovative sessions that bring together Clinicians, Basic Scientists, and Clinical Trial Experts.
Back to the Basics Sessions (60 minutes)
These sessions are proposed to bring foundational knowledge and historical perspective to our meeting participants, highlighting important discoveries made 30+ years ago and how they have influenced the field. Please propose distinguished speakers and topic area to present in these sessions.
