One team for artificial organ in future. Congress President: Koichi Toda, MD
We are pleased to announce that the 30th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Mechanical Circulatory Support ( ISMCS 2024 ) will be held over the three days from Wednesday, November 13 to Friday, November 15, 2024 at the Light Cube Utsunomiya in conjunction with The 62nd Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society for Artificial Organs (JSAO 2024). We have chosen “Reunion for clinicians and engineers” as the theme of the meeting. We encourage physicians, surgeons, engineers, and researchers from all over the world to reunite in Utsunomiya and enjoy the face to face discussion which was impossible during the Covid-19 pandemic. During the pandemic we have not seen much innovation in the field of MCS. In this congress we will invite international speakers from all over the world, who will share their first-hand experience and their cutting-edge research.
Utsunomiya is located at north of Tokyo and it takes 50 min by bullet train (Shinkansen) from Tokyo. Utsunomiya is famous for its beautiful scenery in autumn especially in Nikko area such as Toshogu shrine (magnificent memorial for Tokugawa-shogunate, UNESCO World Heritage: Walking around Autumn Nikko Toshogu Shrine - YouTube), Chuzenji Lake, and Kegon Falls (please see the beautiful hotel at Chuzenji Lake: (kanayahotel.co.jp). The venue will also offer local foods such as gyoza (pan fried dumplings), ramen, and strawberry.
We hope you will take this opportunity both to engage in lively discussions at the meeting and to step out and enjoy Utsunomiya. All of us are making every effort to make the meetings successful, and we are grateful for your support.
