Welcome to the IRACON 2017, the 33rd annual conference of the Indian Rheumatology Association, at SGPGIMS, Lucknow from 30th November to 3rd December 2017. The conference is themed Blending the Art & Science of Rheumatology. Despite unprecedented progress in Science, Rheumatology continues to elude easy solutions hence rheumatologists have to blend the art of clinical medicine with the scientific progress. Fast paced scientific progress should remain rooted in the reality of patient needs in resource poor developing countries. We hope to bring you a balanced blend of the advances in clinical practice and cutting edge research. Scientific sessions would cover among other topics, preclinical rheumatic diseases, systemic lupus erythematosus, pediatric rheumatic diseases,large vessel vasculitis, fibromyalgia and related conditions, rheumatic diseases initiated by infectious agents. The format would vary from workshop, symposia, debate, meet the professor, Quiz etc to suit different needs of the participants.
