Dear ISHLT Members and Colleagues:

Even though the wonderful 2014 meeting in San Diego has just barely ended, it is already time to start developing content for the ISHLT 35th Annual Meeting to be held in the French Riviera city of Nice, France, April 15-18, 2015.

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

This year, the symposium submission process will take place fully online. The link is available here: 2015 Symposium Proposal Submission Site. It is also 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. You are also encouraged to develop proposals that will encourage collaboration among the different ISHLT specialties. 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 Monday, June 2, 2014.

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 Nice!
