Crafting a scientific programme is akin to composing a symphony, with each element carefully orchestrated to create an unforgettable experience. This year, as we gather for the 44th SICOT Orthopaedic World Congress in Belgrade, Serbia, we embark on a journey marked by innovation, collaboration, and celebration. SICOT, rooted in diversity and driven by a passion for knowledge, continues to evolve, resonating with the global orthopaedic community.

SICOT, now in its 95th year, stands as a testament to resilience and adaptability, transforming from a society of orthopaedic generalists to a beacon of excellence in orthopaedic education, advancement, and research.

Our instructional programme is a tapestry of diverse voices and perspectives, featuring esteemed plenary speakers who will illuminate our path forward. Dr Ashok Rajgopal will delve into "Recent Advances in Diagnosis of Periprosthetic Joint Infections", Professor Frederic Schuind will explore the exciting integration of AI for hand amputees, and Professor James Waddell will reflect on "Fifty Years of Orthopaedic Surgery." Alongside these luminaries, our programme showcases the collaborative spirit of SICOT, with contributions from key opinion leaders, local and international experts, and esteemed Partner Societies with whom we look forward to working year after year.

From traditional lectures to dynamic debates, interactive round tables, surgical videos, live polls, tips and tricks, shared experiences, and insightful case discussions, there is something for every orthopaedic enthusiast.

Together with the dedicated team at the SICOT Head Office, the visionary leadership of the Education Academy Chair, the direction of our Executive Committee, and the invaluable contributions of our membership, we have crafted an experience that transcends boundaries and inspires excellence. I invite you all to join us in Belgrade, Serbia, for a congress that promises to be both enriching and inspiring. Let us come together to celebrate our shared passion for orthopaedics and forge new pathways towards a brighter future.

Looking forward to meeting you all in person in September for an unforgettable congress!
