Congress President : Prof. Haim Ring (Israel)
The more than 1300 participants from 73 countries were offered a rich and varied scientific program and a commercial exhibition of rehabilitation-related technologies by 22 exhibitors. About 1,100 presentations had been submitted for either oral or poster presentation. Daily 5-6 halls were operated to accommodate the 64 oral sessions, covering all major aspects of P&RM, along with special educational activities such as workshops, mini-courses and a satellite symposium. Poster sessions were held every day. Aftermath, over 70 personal and other messages arrived from all over the world, some of them even from persons that for different reasons could not possibly be there, expressing their satisfaction with the congress.
