Call for ISHLT 2016 Symposium Proposals

Dear ISHLT Members and Colleagues:

Even though the 35th Annual Meeting in Nice, France, is just around the corner, it is already time to start developing content for the ISHLT 36th Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions to be held in Washington, DC, USA, April 27-30, 2016.

As program chair for the 2016 meeting, I encourage you to submit ideas for pre-meeting and sunrise symposia and/or invited Plenary talks. Although, well worked complete symposia proposals are preferred, we welcome suggestions for potential plenary speakers from outside the transplant community who might deliver an excellent presentation with widespread appeal to members.

Your input into this process will be very valuable to the Symposium Planning Committee since the majority of the invited scientific content for the Annual Meeting will stem from proposals submitted by ISHLT Members and Scientific Councils.

Below is a link to the symposium proposal submission site:
2016 Symposium Proposal Submission Site

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 http://www.ishlt.org/ under the "Boards and Committees" and "Councils" tabs.

The deadline for receipt of proposals is Tuesday, June 2, 2015.

All proposals will be reviewed by program committee representatives from the relevant discipline area. The final development of invited scientific content will take place during the Symposium Planning Committee meeting in July.

If you have any questions about the submission process, please contact Susie Newton (susie.newton@ishlt.org) at the ISHLT office.

Please accept my thanks in advance for your valuable input. I look forward to seeing you in Washington, DC!
