European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) 2016 Innsbruck

  • Conference Call
  • We are delighted to invite you to the 84th Euro­pean Ath­er­o­scle­ro­sis Soci­ety (EAS) Con­gress 2016 which will be held in Inns­bruck, Aus­tria, from May 29th to June 1st, 2016, hosted by the Euro­pean Ath­er­o­scle­ro­sis Soci­ety (EAS) and the Aus­trian Ath­er­o­scle­ro­sis Soci­ety (AAS).

    The con­gress com­mit­tees have already been work­ing hard and will con­tinue to strive on prepar­ing a pro­gram of sci­en­tific excel­lence that will excite, inspire, and inform the Euro­pean and Global Ath­er­o­scle­ro­sis com­mu­ni­ties. The com­fort­able atmos­phere of the con­gress venue and its impres­sive set­ting will pro­vide a unique meet­ing place for high-​level inter­dis­ci­pli­nary exchange of newest research high­lights and effec­tive net­work­ing. The planned state-​of-​the-​art ple­nary ses­sions and work­shops will focus on timely and emerg­ing hot top­ics and we would like to cor­dially invite you to sub­mit abstracts of your lat­est work to be pre­sented orally or as posters. Remem­ber to reg­is­ter promptly to take advan­tage of early-​bird offers.

    The con­gress will be held at Con­gress Inns­bruck, located next to the scenic river Inn. Inns­bruck is one of the most beau­ti­ful cities in the Alps, sur­rounded by impres­sive moun­tain peaks. Another attrac­tion, of course, are the superb Tyrolean culi­nary high­lights that will be offered dur­ing the unique Social Pro­gram and through­out the meet­ing. Finally, for those with a few days to spare, there are many inter­est­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to visit Innsbruck’s cul­tural high­lights before and after the congress.

    The 84th EAS con­gress will be accom­pa­nied by a Satel­lite Sym­po­sium on Lp(a)​ that is planned two days ahead of the main con­gress with a lim­ited num­ber of participants.
