The 62nd Annual SSC Meeting of the ISTH will be devoted to the discussion of diagnostic standards, disease nomenclature and classification, and the latest research on bleeding and thrombotic disorders. Topics center around the work of each of the SSC Subcommittees. Continuing the tradition of offering dedicated educational and plenary sessions to complement the in-depth presentations of the work in progress by the SSC subcommittees and working groups, SSC 2016 is a must-attend scientific event in the field of thrombosis and hemostasis, and your participation and involvement is vital to its success.
Jean-François Schved, SSC 2016 Meeting President
Montpellier is the very definition of the Mediterranean city. With its rich historical heritage and idyllic location just a few kilometers from the sea, Montpellier is a key international city for business tourism.
A lively city in the heart of the Languedoc-Roussillon region, Montpellier is vibrant, elegant and artistic. People are drawn here by the city's rich past, former and contemporary glory, intense cultural life and youthful feel. Its sunny climate and well-preserved historical environment are second to none, nestled between the sea, vineyards and mountain landscapes.
