Registration

In 2020, the World Muscle Society, like so many learned societies, held its first virtual congress due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 25th WMS Anniversary Congress, despite the fact that it was entirely digital, was nevertheless a great success. In spite of our hope that life would be back to normal for our annual congress in 2021 in Prague, we have all realised that ‘normal’ has changed and that a return to the pre-pandemic status quo is unlikely, and so, the WMS annual congress will be an entirely virtual meeting for the second time in 2021.

We are pleased to invite you to register for the 26th WMS 2021 Virtual Annual Congress by using the link below.

REGISTER HERE

WMS2021 programme sessions will be held from remote locations and e-posters will be shared virtually. Industry symposia will be available online and on demand. Exhibitors will be able to meet online to discuss new collaborations. We have learned from last year’s experience and we are working hard to design an inclusive, engaging virtual event for all our attendees.

Access to the virtual congress will be provided to registered participants only in the form of access credentials. The majority of the live streamed sessions will be available online on the virtual platform for up to 3 months post-congress and migrated to the WMS website thereafter, for WMS Members to access.
