More info from the 2008 Intl Conference on Behcet's

The International Society for Behcet's Disease
is made up of physicians and medical professionals around the world who do research on BD, and/or who are experienced in treating Behcet's patients. The ISBD sponsors the international BD conferences, which take place every other year. The ISBD has just posted a PDF file on their website with an overview/outline of the 13th International BD Conference that took place in Austria in May 2008.
: The PDF is 4.0 MB, and unless you have high-speed internet access, it takes a while to download -- it's 36 pages, but it has some good info. (The second half of the PDF is the most interesting):

There are also links to summaries of the 11th International Conference in 2004 in Antalya, Turkey (found at: )
and the 10th International Conference in Germany in 2002 (found at:

According to the ISBD website:
The 14th International Conference on Behcet’s Disease will take place at
Queen Mary College, University of London, 8 - 10 June 2010.

Information on the conference's location (but NOT on the conference itself) can be found here:

I'm hoping to go to this conference, if the economy ever picks up before 2010 :-O
