We would like to extend a warm welcome to the first International Congress on Motion Sickness and the collaborative 15th European Society of Clinical Evaluation of Balance Disorders Meeting, which is to be held in Akureyri, Iceland, July 7th – 10th 2019.

Seafaring has always been an important part of the Icelander’s heritage and way of life, from navigating Vikings to the today fishing industry that is one of the cornerstones of our economy. However, despite our familiarity with the sea, the burden of sea sickness and accidents at sea have always followed us.

Our congress will focus on recent advances in motion sickness sciences and will include invited plenary lectures, free presentations and poster sessions. This international meeting of those interested in the field offers an excellent opportunity to exchange information on recent findings and advances in Motion Sickness and its association with accidents. The theme of the congress, “Survival in a moving environment” emphasizes the importance of integrating and adapting future developments in this field in order to help those who find themselves suffering from the discomforts of motion sickness.

In addition, we would like to encourage participants to take time to experience the unique Icelandic nature, as well as attending some of the many cultural events Iceland has to offer.

Welcome to Akureyri in July 2019!
