It is with great pleasure that I write my first "President's post".

First of all, I would like to thank Professor Ralph Benedict for all he has done as President of the IMSCOGS  with the help of the Executive Board in recent years. IMSCOGS has now become a real scientific society governed by bylaws with functioning bodies. The Steering Committee (SC) is now led by Menno Schoonheim. Different working groups will work within it and different projects are on track that we will have the opportunity to discuss in a future Post. The SC will work in complementarity with the EB.

I would also like to congratulate the Amsterdam team for proposing a remarkable programme for the meeting that took place in June. The audience praised the quality of the speakers and the interactive nature of the event.  The location of the IMSCOGS 2020 meeting is under discussion and we will inform you as soon as possible.
