Dear Colleagues,
It is a particular pleasure to invite you to the Second European
THROMBOEMBOLISM. The School is organized by the Center for
Thrombosis and Hemostasis (CTH) at the University Medical
Center Mainz, Germany, in collaboration with the Leiden
University Medical Center (LUMC), The Netherlands, and with the
Democritus University of Thrace, Greece, as the local host.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is the third most frequent
cardiovascular disease. It has an annual incidence of over 100
cases per 100,000 population and is responsible for approximately 12% of all deaths in European countries each year.
Based on the feedback that we received from you after our First
Spring School in 2013, we have included a number of
improvements and innovations to the programme of the Second
Spring School, in particular:
State of the Art Plenary Lectures, Clinical Seminars, Oral and
Moderated Poster Presentations in the morning sessions
Breakout Workshops (parallel interactive sessions, from
which the participants will be able to choose among a total
of 12 offered workshops) in the afternoon sessions
Keynote Lectures in the evening sessions
Meet the Scientist/Trialist conversations at dinner.
The purpose of the European VTE Spring School is to provide
interested early career scientists and physicians across a broad
spectrum of medical disciplines with a comprehensive overview
of what is, at present, the state of the art in the rapidly evolving
science and practice of venous thromboembolism. The
participants will have the opportunity to benefit from interactive
seminars and workshops moderated by renowned European
experts and leaders in the field. Last but not least, the Spring
School will offer a unique opportunity for networking, and for
discussing future areas of research and collaboration projects.
We very much hope that you will join us for this exciting educational event in May 2015!
With very best regards
