Dear ESOT Members,
Dear Colleagues,
Dear Transplant Professionals,
Dear Friends,

Time flies! There is now only six months until the opening of the 17th ESOT Congress.
This year’s bi-annual congress will be held 13-16 September at Square Congress Centre in Brussels.

The scientific and local organising comittees have put together an outstanding programme touching on all aspects of organ and cellular transplantation, both current and future. The appeal of this programme as well as the attractive location in the capital of Europe, are reflected in the high level of interest which the congress is attracting, with a record-breaking number of abstracts having already been received from all over the world.

The kick-off plenary session, which takes place Sunday September 13, will deal with the influence and consequences of different cultural, religious, social and political environments on the development of modern transplantation medicine.

Indeed there is no other medical field which reaches more deeply into the many different social, ethical, legal, psychologic, economic, religious and cultural aspects of today’s world than transplantation medicine.

The opening session will look very different to those you have attended at other International Conferences. Our ESOT president, John Forsythe, will host a chat show format with world renowned experts from all corners of the globe. This will include North-America (Prof. Daniel Salomon from San Diego, USA), South-America (Prof. José Medina-Pestana from Sao Paolo, Brasil), Asia (Prof. Chao-Long Chen from Kaoshiung,Taiwan) and the Middle-East (Prof. Seyed Ali Malek Hosseini from Shiraz, Iran). Members of the audience will be encouraged to participate, by prior planning, and the session should provide an innovative, educational and entertaining start to the Congress.

The debate session will be followed by a high-level, artistic pianoforte intermezzo given by Mrs. Enrica CICCARELLI. One of the Meccas of classical music the Salle LeBoeuf at Bozar will ring with beautiful notes from top European composers.

Finally, former European Council President, Herman Van ROMPUY will captivate the audience with one of his very favourite topics : Towards a more social European Union.

The opening session of ESOT 2015 should be perceived as an excellent appetizer….with highest quality main courses to be savoured afterwards.
