Following last week’s ISHLT meeting, I would like to encourage You and Your colleagues to submit proposals for the ISHLT 37th Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions to be held in San Diego, California, April 5-8, 2017. This is an opportunity to submit proposals for pre-meeting and sunrise symposia about specific topics which haven’t been discussed at this year’s meeting and which you would like to see being discussed next year.
Submission due date is June 2nd. The submission site can be found at abstractsonline.com/login/… .
Please remember that diversity (geographic, gender, etc.) is important in these proposals. In attachment You can find a general example for the lay-out of proposals.
Later this year, also individual Abstracts can be submitted through this submission site (submission due date November 2016).
