On behalf of the Congress Executive Committee and the Council of the European and Mediterranean League against Thrombotic Diseases (EMLTD), it is my great pleasure and privilege to invite you to the 26th International Congress on Thrombosis (ICT) to be held in Athens, June 19-22, 2019. In 2019, EMLTD celebrates 50 years of scientific activities in the field of Thrombosis in the Mediterranean countries and in Europe. Therefore, the 26th ICT will be the Anniversary Congress of EMLTD. The local Institute for the Study and Education on Thrombosis and Antithrombotic Therapy (ISETAT) will warmly welcome the EMLTD congress in Athens and will act as the hosting Society.
The ICT 2019 welcomes both clinicians and basic researchers for high-level interdisciplinary exchange. The congress will bring the best and most novel advances in Thrombosis and related scientific topics to attending delegates. In this regard we have created a unique programme which covers the whole spectrum of basic, translational and clinical aspects of thrombosis, platelets, coagulation, fibrinolysis, haemostasis and vascular biology with care and appreciation for attendees’ scientific and personal enjoyment. The programme includes outstanding Keynote lectures, State-of-the-art Plenary sessions, Meet the Experts sessions, Advanced Clinical Workshops, Sponsored Educational and Satellite symposia, Short Oral Presentations, Science at a Glance and Poster sessions, based on selected abstracts submitted by young scientists. We are sure that the ICT 2019 will create an excellent opportunity for all participants to gain new friends, new ideas, inspiration to advance their research, and opportunities to establish new collaborations on Thrombosis and related diseases. The ICT 2019 will support Young Investigators by providing awards to the best oral and poster presentations.
The Congress will be held in “Megaron, The Athens International Conference Center”. This venue is in the center of the city of Athens, very close to the metro station and in walking distance from many hotels suitable for the participants. All attendees of ICT 2019 will have the opportunity to enjoy an excellent scientific meeting in the warm, hospitable and enchanting city of Athens. Athens is the city of the goddess of wisdom Athena, the city of democracy, philosophy, arts, theater, the city where many of classical civilization’s intellectual and artistic ideas originated. Athens has a unique place in human history with important monuments and museums, and presently it is a large cosmopolitan metropolis and central to economic, financial, industrial, maritime, political and cultural life in Greece. We are confident that all the above fascinating features will make the Anniversary 26th ICT 2019 a wonderful and unforgettable event.
We look forward to welcoming you to Athens in June 2019!
