XXIII Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis – Organizing a Successful International Congress in the Face of Natural Disaster


Henri Bounameaux, MD1 and Thomas Reiser2

The XXIII Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) and the 57th Annual Meeting of the Scientific and Standardization Committee (SSC) of the ISTH were successfully held 24–28 July, 2011 in Kyoto, Japan. With over 4500 participants from more than 70 countries, the congress was a truly global gathering of leading scientists and clinicians specializing in disorders of blood clotting and bleeding. Exciting and late-breaking research was featured, and it provided the latest insights into translational science and state-of-the-art clinical medicine. It was this very successful congress that, 3 months earlier, was almost canceled in the wake of the terrible natural disaster occurring on 11 March 2011 in north-east Japan.
