Words of welcome from the organizers
Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,
We would like to bring to your attention next year’s 82nd Congress of the European Atherosclerosis Society. Founded in 1964, 2014 marks the 50th Anniversary of the Society, an occasion we will celebrate throughout the meeting, which will take place in Madrid, Spain, starting on May 31.
Science in Focus
An impressive scientific programme, featuring experts at the forefront of research in both clinical and basic science in the field of atherosclerosis, has been put together by the Organizing Committees. The details of the Plenary and Workshop sessions are now on the Congress website:
In addition there will be Educational Symposia and other debate sessions and discussions.
Take part - Present your research
The Abstract submission portal is now open on the Congress website, and the deadline for latest Abstract submission is January 08, 2014. Accepted Abstracts will be presented either as oral presentations during Workshops, or as posters. EAS 2014 will again feature our always-popular moderated poster discussions lead by senior scientists. One of our aims is to encourage the participation of young scientists and clinicians - EAS 2014 is a great opportunity for them to share their research with senior experts in the field of atherosclerosis.
