Dear Friends & Colleagues,

On behalf of the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) and the Sociedade Portuguesa de Aterosclerose (Portuguese Society of Atherosclerosis, PSA) we invite you to Portugal, to the beautiful and historic city of Lisbon and the 86th EAS Congress. During the meeting we will explore the latest top research into the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of atherosclerosis and related vascular disease.

With many world-leading experts already confirmed in the scientific programme, EAS 2018 Lisbon is the place to come for a bench-to-bedside overview of the latest current research in the field. Be inspired by the award-winning Anitschkow Lecture, by outstanding Keynote lectures, by state-of-the-art Plenary sessions, and focussed Workshops and Advanced Clinical Seminars.

EAS Congress welcomes both clinicians and basic researchers for high-level interdisciplinary exchange. 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.

EAS supports 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.

On behalf of the organising committees we invite clinicians and basic researchers studying atherosclerosis and related vascular disease to present your findings to the international scientific community at EAS 2018 Lisbon. You are sure to gain new friends, new ideas, and inspiration to take your studies of atherosclerosis and related vascular disease to new levels.

Join us in Lisbon!
