Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to Geneva for the 24th World Congress of Cardiothoracic Surgeons which will take place from September 6th to September 10th, 2014 at the CICR Conference Center located in Geneva, Switzerland.

During the past years, the World Society of Cardiothoracic Surgeons annual meetings have confirmed their utmost importance devoted to the techniques, applications as well  as to the latest research of cardiothoracic surgery and related disciplines.

The WSCTS 2014 meeting will build on the success of previous meetings and will bring together renowned experts from around the world to discuss  the progress made in cardiothoracic clinical care and research. The 24th WSCTS meeting will be a wonderful opportunity for cardiothoracic surgeons from all over the world,  to exchange ideas and give access to the latest scientific and clinical resources and information to our young colleagues.

Geneva, at the heart of Europe has  an ideal location for our WSCTS 2014 meeting thanks to the perfect international environment.  Its own efficient airport makes Geneva easily accessible from all around the world.

I hope you will mark your calendars to join us in Geneva for this meeting. I look forward to your partnership, support of one of the most important scientific events in cardiothoracic surgery.
