ESOT Vienna 2013:
Pushing the limits
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 16th Congress of the European Society for Organ Transplantation, to be held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) September 8-11, 2013. The meeting is jointly hosted by the Medical University of Innsbruck and the Medical University of Vienna and endorsed by the Austrian Society for Transplantation, Transfusion and Genetics.
The Scientific Program Committee represents an assembly of ESOT leaders, as well as internationally established and active people, along with young and innovative out-of-the-box thinkers, all from the various fields related to transplantation. The theme "pushing the limits" will serve as the guiding principle in the development of the scientific program, the presentation format, information exhange and communication. As you may have noticed this theme is also reflected in the graphics adopted for this website.
The conference is building on well-established standards in transplantation and addressing present and upcoming challenges in the field. A stimulating rejuvenated format with a focus on interaction and information exchange will further enhance the value of the conference and help to INSPIRE, EDUCATE, CONNECT and ENTERTAIN.
Vienna is acknowledged worldwide as a conference destination and the ACV has an outstanding reputation as a meeting venue. The capital of Austria is easily accessible and well connected and offers unique cultural, social and historical attractions.
It is our pleasure to host the ESOT 2013 Vienna Congress and we look forward to welcoming you.
