Dear ISHLT Members and colleagues,

Now is the time to submit content for the ISHLT 34th Annual Meeting to be held in sunny San Diego, April 9-12, 2014.

As program chair for the San Diego meeting, I encourage you to submit ideas for satellite symposia and/or invited talks. 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.

You may submit a proposal for a FULL SYMPOSIUM (including 3-6 talks) or a SINGLE INVITED TALK. Both forms are available on the Future Meetings page of the ISHLT website. If you have any questions about the submission process, please contact Susie Newton (susie.newton@ishlt.org) at the ISHLT office. You are strongly encouraged to consult with the Education Workforce Chair(s) and Council Chair(s) appropriate to your topic before submitting a proposal. They will provide guidance regarding educational areas identified as priorities for the Annual Meeting. The list of current committees and councils can be found at www.ishlt.org under the "Boards and Committees" and "Councils" tabs.

The deadline for receipt of proposals is Friday, June 14, 2013.

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.

Please accept my thanks in advance for your valuable input. I look forward to seeing you in San Diego!

Sincerely,

Jason D. Christie, MD
2014 Scientific Program Chair
