Ireland’s capital city is to host the world’s largest gathering of scientific experts in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis in 2018.
The International Society on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH) will bring its 64th Annual Scientific and Standardisation Committee (SSC) Meeting to the Convention Centre Dublin. Taking place 18-21 July, 2018, the meeting is expected to bring together 2,000 clinicians, researchers, educators, healthcare professionals, and industry partners from more than 94 countries.
“We are excited to welcome SSC 2018 to the city of Dublin,” said Dermot Cox, SSC 2018 meeting president and senior lecturer at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
“We look forward to offering an engaging meeting platform for scientific and clinical working groups that lay the foundation for future breakthroughs and allow the field to collaborate toward patient-centric solutions.”
SSC 2018 will showcase new research and educational presentations from the leading experts in thrombosis, hemostasis and vascular biology. The meeting will also offer a lineup of plenaries, education and breakout sessions, as well as an exhibition.
The ISTH is collaborating closely with a local organizing committee led by Dermot Cox and Dublin-based PCO Conference Partners International.
“The ISTH is proud to collaborate with Conference Partners International for this meeting,” said Lisa Astorga, ISTH director of meetings. “Their breadth of experience in the association meetings industry and solutions-based approach will be integral to the success of SSC 2018.”
SSC 2018 will be the organisation’s last standalone SSC meeting, as the ISTH last year announced its decision to hold a global congress annually beginning in 2019.
