— Napoleon Hill

allan glanvilleI would like to thank those who have already submitted proposals for next year's meeting. With the submission deadline upon us, I encourage you to SUBMIT IDEAS for satellite symposia and/or invited plenary speakers NOW! Your input into this process will be very valuable to the Scientific Program Committee: the majority of the invited scientific content for the Annual Meeting will stem from proposals submitted by ISHLT Members and Scientific Councils.

If you have ideas not yet fully developed, you are encouraged to consult directly with one of the Education Committee Council Representatives listed below. These committee members will be able to provide guidance regarding educational areas identified as priorities for the Annual Meeting, in order to increase the likelihood of your ideas/proposal being accepted for inclusion in next year's program.

Education Committee Members:

If you have a fully developed symposium idea, including title, summary, and suggested speakers and session chairs, please use one of the forms available on the Future Meetings page of the ISHLT website and submit your proposal(s) to Susie Newton ( at the ISHLT office.

The deadline for receipt of proposals is Monday, June 18, 2012.

All proposals will be reviewed by program committee representatives from the relevant area. The final development of invited scientific content will take place during the Program Committee meeting in July, where your thoughts and ideas will be discussed by your relevant program co-chairs prior to a final decision being made regarding priority.

Please accept my thanks in advance for your valuable input, and I look forward to seeing you in Montreal. It should prove to be another exciting educational experience.
