Welcome from the organisers
On behalf of the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) and the German societies DACH, DGFF and DGAF we are proud to invite you to participate in the 91st EAS Congress in the city of Mannheim. Mannheim is conveniently located in southern Germany with close access to Frankfurt and is home to inventions such as the automobile, bicycle and tractor. Plenty of cultural experiences and wine regions are within reach of the city.
The congress will carry on from the successful recent congress held in Milan and will offer in-person and virtual attendance. During the meeting we will explore the latest developments in basic, translational and clinical research into the causes of atherosclerosis and related vascular disease, and how these may affect the clinical guidelines for diagnosis and treatment. One of the key features of our Congress is the high-level interdisciplinary exchange between clinicians and basic researchers. With many world-leading experts already confirmed, the EAS 2023 scientific programme will offer an overview of the latest current research in the field – including the award-winning Anitschkow Lecture, outstanding Keynote Lectures, state-of-the-art Plenary Sessions, and focused Workshops and Advance Clinical Seminars. We firmly believe that the personal meeting – presenting and discussing one’s work with others and sparking ideas from others’ work – is the key to progress in science. We encourage you to join us – to ask questions and share ideas during the Science at a Glance and Poster Sessions.
The EAS mission is also to support young scientists in progressing their careers through Young Investigator Fellowships. This important initiative offers early-career scientists the opportunity to take part in the Congress, to learn through presenting their own research, attending the scientific programme, and getting to know others in the field. Information about Fellowships can be found on the Society website, and we welcome abstract submissions from young scientists.
We are extremely happy to invite you to attend the EAS 2023 Congress in Mannheim, on May 21 – May 24. You are sure to gain new friends, new ideas, and inspiration to take your studies of atherosclerosis and related vascular disease to new levels!
