With an international faculty of 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 atherosclerosis and related vascular disease.

2. Be recognised – present your own findings on our prestigious international platform

EAS Congress welcomes delegates from over 70 countries for high-level interdisciplinary exchange. We encourage you to join us – gain recognition by presenting your own findings to a truly international audience. Abstracts presented as part of the Congress programme are subsequently published in the Society’s internationally recognised Atherosclerosis journal.

3. Be encouraged – progress your career with our opportunities for Young Investigators

EAS is committed to the support of young scientists in progressing their careers. Our Young Investigator Fellowships initiative offers early-career scientists the opportunity to take part in the Congress, to sharpen their skills by presenting and answering questions on 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.

EAS 2018 Lisbon welcomes abstract submissions from young scientists.

4. Be energized – interdisciplinary discussions and questions that lead to new ideas and collaborations

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. EAS Congress has a wide multi-disciplinary audience of both clinicians and basic researchers. What begins as scientific discussion may lead to new ideas and fruitful collaboration. So join the discussion, question and debate in the Science at a Glance and Poster sessions, and then relax and enjoy friendships old and new at the Welcome Reception and Networking Evening.

5. Be inspired – by the beautiful and historic city of Lisbon

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and lies on the north bank of the Tagus Estuary, on the European Atlantic coast. One of the oldest cities in Europe, Lisbon is famous for its cuisine, beaches, historic buildings and castles, several of which are UNESCO world heritage sites. For centuries a hub of commerce, Lisbon today offers a wide variety of options to the visitor, museums, art galleries, fascinating cobbled streets and distinctive architecture.
