24th Biennial International Congress on Thrombosis

4-7 maja 2016, Stambuł, Turcja - Termin składania streszczeń 04.12.2015

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Congress Executive Board, the local Organizing Committee and the Council of the European and Mediterranean League against Thromboembolic Diseases, it is with great pleasure and privilege to invite you to the 24th International Congress on Thrombosis to be held in Istanbul, Turkey on May 4-7, 2016.

This will be the third ICT Congress held in Turkey. The first two were held in 1974 and 2008 by Prof. Dr. Orhan N. Ulutin who was a founding member of many international organizations, including EMLTD and the Hemostasis and Thrombosis Congresses in Turkey.

The Scientific Programme of the upcoming Congress will cover topics ranging from various fields of clinical and laboratory issues on thrombosis and related scientific issues. The Congress will feature contemporary lecture topics, evidence-based hematology sessions, and satellite symposia covering the latest developments on thrombotic diseases. The education program of the Congress will strike a balance between the needs of both basic and clinical issues. We took great care in designing a program that caters to the needs of younger attendees through discussions that foster scientific exchange, presentations, awards and special social functions.

The cultural program also promises to be appealing, and will highlight Istanbul's proud culture and national heritage. Istanbul’s history dates back to the end of the 4th century B.C., and relics from the Hellenic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman periods are scattered throughout the city. The Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Topkap? Palace and Turkish Baths, all contribute to Istanbul’s unique experience as an open-air museum. You will have the opportunity to discover Turkish music, art and architecture, enjoy delicious Turkish and Ottoman cuisines, and experience worldrenowned Turkish hospitality. Istanbul’s unique geography at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, allows the world “to meet where the continents meet”.

The Haliç Congress Center will be the venue for the Congress. The Haliç Congress Center is ideally situated along the shores of the Golden Horn. The Center is easily accessible from hotels and via public transportation to and from the entire city.

Once again, on behalf of the Executive Board of EMLTD and of the Organizing Committee, I would like to invite you to the 24th International Congress on Thrombosis. I sincerely believe that you will enjoy both the scientific and cultural aspects of the programme, and the pleasure of spring time in Istanbul.

I look forward to personally welcoming you to Istanbul in May, 2016!

Ahmet Muzaffer Demir, M.D.
President of 24th International Congress on Thrombosis
