Dear Friends & Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the 85th EAS Congress which will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, from 23-26 April, 2017, hosted by the European Atherosclerosis Society (EAS) and the Czech Society for Atherosclerosis (CSAT).

The meeting will build bridges between today’s research and tomorrow’s therapies in the diagnosis and treatment of atherosclerosis and related vascular disease. The historical city of Prague is a picturesque setting for the meeting; its charming bridges symbolising the progress in the field as world-leading experts come together to inform and inspire.

The comfortable atmosphere of the congress venue and its impressive setting will provide a unique meeting place for high-level interdisciplinary exchange. The planned state-of-the-art plenary sessions and workshops will focus on timely and emerging hot topics and we would like to cordially invite you to submit abstracts of your latest work to be presented orally or as posters. Remember to register promptly to take advantage of early registration offers.

On behalf of the organising committee, we invite you to join us in Prague for a memorable and inspiring congress.
