On behalf of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) and the Local Organizing Committee, I am pleased to welcome you to the ISTH 2015 Congress in Toronto. We are grateful that you have chosen to join us and share the important scientific developments in the fields of thrombosis, hemostasis and vascular biology. This 25th biennial Congress and 61st annual Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC) Meeting is poised to be the most influential and diverse gathering of its kind.

ISTH Congresses consistently serve as a forum for the best possible science and education in the fields of thrombosis and hemostasis, and ISTH 2015 will continue in this remarkable tradition. We have planned an outstanding program for you with five plenary lectures, 53 State-of the-Art lectures and 52 abstract symposia. Also, be sure to download the ISTH 2015 mobile app to access the Congress program on the go.

In addition, we have planned ample opportunities for you to meet and network with colleagues. The Opening Ceremony and reception on Sunday evening is a fantastic opportunity to build relationships. We are also proud to present the All Congress Party on Wednesday evening, featuring the Canadian rock band Barenaked Ladies. Don’t miss this exciting celebration.

One new initiative of ISTH 2015 is the creation of the ISTH Congress Daily News, a website and e-newsletter delivered to your email inbox with the latest news and events. No paper copies of the Daily News will be available, so be sure to check your email and the website for the latest stories, pictures and videos.

In Toronto, I’m confident you will discover a world-class, multi-cultural city with an abundance of activities and fantastic dining options. Please enjoy your time in Canada. I look forward to seeing you here!
