The congress will take place in Ljubljana from 10.-13th of October 2019. In the exciting field of vascular medicine, there is always something new and we will present it to you in the setting of our beautiful city. We expect that with your participation we will cover the whole spectrum of vascular diseases from basic research to diagnostics, treatment and prevention. The programme includes outstanding state-of-the-art and plenary lectures, satellite symposia, oral presentations, and poster sessions, based on selected abstracts submitted by participants.
The venue will be in Cankarjev dom in the center of Ljubljana – the capital of Slovenia, close to the hotels suitable for participants and close to the old city center, where everyone can find something interesting. In addition to the new science, you will have the opportunity to make new friends, discuss the old and new problems and get new ideas and new collaborations.
