17th Congress of European Shock Society
Institut Pasteur Conference Center #PARIS , FRANCE
Sepsis 2017 is the ISF’s 11th annual Symposium. Sepsis 2017 will be held at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, France and will precede the XVII Congress of the European Shock Society (ESS). We are expecting an audience of 300 delegates from around the world for Sepsis 2017. Past symposia have attracted delegates from more than 40 countries. The official language will be English.
Sepsis 2017 and ESS will be held back to back with the ability to participate in Up-close and Personal Workshops on the 11 September at the Hotel Concorde Montparnasse preceding the main sessions of Sepsis 2017 at the Institut Pasteur.
Sepsis 2017 will feature presentations by international experts, who will cover the most important topics of sepsis, spanning the spectrum from cutting edge basic science research to clinical aspects and trials.
Sepsis 2017 is an excellent opportunity to become up-to-date on everything that currently is going on in the field of sepsis! In addition, there will be ample possibilities to present own scientific work and to informally interact with ISF council members during poster sessions.
You can register for Sepsis 2017 and choose 2 workshops to participate in (the workshops are optional) on conference Website:
For the first time since the founding of the European Shock Society (33 years ago), its congress will be held in France, and Paris will host the XVIIth Congress of the ESS from 13th to 15th September, 2017.
An international committee has proposed 55 different topics, and 15 of them have been selected by the members of the ESS Executive Committee and by the French Organising Committee.
Three “premières” will happened:
For the first time, based on the initiative of Markus Huber-Lang (our President-Elect), a student-oriented “Shock Summer School” (SSS) will be organized on the very first morning of the congress. Its general topic is “sepsis” and the SSS will be fittingly held during the “World Sepsis Day”.
For the first time ever, a joint session with the Chinese Shock Society will be organized.
For the first time ever, a joint session with the US Shock Society will be organized.
