66. Jahrestagung der GTH in Leipzig
Dear colleagues and friends,
It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 66th Annual Meeting of the Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis Research (GTH e.V.). The meeting will take place in Leipzig, 01–04 March 2022, in the modern Congress Center of the “Leipziger Messe”. The City of Leipzig is easily accessible and offers optimal conditions for a stimulating meeting.
Our congress motto “sustainable collaboration” was chosen to offer two different meanings. The cooperation with colleagues in our field is essential for both patient care and scientific progress. Thus, a reliable and sustainable interdisciplinary collaboration will be key to advance the field of Thrombosis and Haemostasis in the upcoming (and challenging) years. At the same time, Medicine and Science cannot ignore the global ecologic challenges that go far beyond global warming, water pollution, the continuous extinction of animal species or the reckless destruction of rain forests. To make our contribution towards a greener future we must make our collaborations and meetings more “eco-friendly”. To achieve this, we all need to collaborate in our efforts for sustainability.
As congress presidents we want to hold true to our congress motto. We plan to invite speakers and participants from collaborating specialities such as vascular physicians, cardiologists, GPs, haematologists, anaesthetists, trauma surgeons or gynaecologists to exchange views and expectations in the field of Thrombosis and Haemostasis and to explore the future for our collaborations.
At the same time, we want to create a modern and eco-friendly congress. Accommodation will be available within walking distance from the venue. We encourage the use of public transport for your travel to Leipzig and during the congress. We promote the use of recycling products and reduce the amount of wasted paper from unused congress material. For this concept we have received positive and supportive feedback from our industry partners, making our efforts to minimize the ecologic footprint of “GTH 2022” a joint (ad)venture.
Although the congress will take place in Leipzig, GTH 2022 will be a „Saxonian“ initiative, involving an organizing and program committee of clinicians and scientists from Dresden and Leipzig. Therefore, our congress logo includes famous buildings from Leipzig and Dresden – but there is much more to explore!
We strongly encourage you to meet us in Leipzig in March 2022 and to share your latest work with the scientific community. Saxonia and both of us welcome you: physicians, researchers, students, nurses, technicians, pharmacists and physiotherapists, industry partners and all other friends of thrombosis and haemostasis.
