17th - 20th May 2017

Joint ESTMJS / ASTMJS Conference

Lille, France


60 Minutes from Paris by Train

80 Minutes from London by Train



Dear Friends

It is my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the joint meeting of our two societies ESTMJS and ASTMJS which will take place in Lille, from 17 – 20th May 2017. 

The main topic of the meeting will be “malformations and growing patients”.   This topic was decided taking into account the increasing knowledge of congenital pathologies that could affect the TMJ but also the great progress of the TMJ prosthesis.  This theme will open discussions on the consequences of our surgeries especially in children and the long term results of our treatments.

The meeting will be located in Hotel Alliance (Couvent des Minimes).  The building was originally a monastery erected during the XVII century.  It is full of history and part of Flemish French area cultural heritage.  

Lille is very easy to reach, having direct connections with Charles de Gaulle International Airport in less than 1 hour by High speed train (TGV) and from London St Pancras by Eurostar.

Lille has a huge cultural background.  It has always been an important place of trade ideally located at the crossing of the Flemish, English and French cultures.  It hosts many museums and historical spots.  The city was the European cultural capital in 2004. From Lille you can quickly reach many other European cities: Paris in one hour, London in less than two hours, Brussels and Bruges in 45 minutes.

The weather during May is usually good in the area which allows relaxation and strolling in the historical part of the city.

The organizing team and myself are looking forward to meeting with you In Lille in 2017.

Best wishes,



Joël Ferri
