DKCS Activities

The main activity of the society is an annual conference, held in the beginning of November in Nyborg in the center of Denmark. The 3-day conference attracts approx. 225 participants. Actual subjects are discussed during planned sessions, free lectures, posters, excibitions etc. The greatest importance is attached to experiences and research results that may have a immediate practical use in the daily practice in hospitals. Companies have a possibility to exhibit their products. As a supplement to the scientific programme a suitable social programme is included and it gives a good possibility for informal discussions and contacts.
