We welcome you to the Fourth International Joint Meeting on Thoracic Surgery that will take place in Barcelona, Spain, in November 2018. The rewarding experiences of the [ First ], [ Second ] and [Third] International Joint Meetings on Thoracic Surgery held in the same city in 2009, 2012 and 2015 encourage all of us to work together once again with the purpose of celebrating the fourth edition in 2018.
The Joint Meeting 2018 will consist of a mixture of brief oral and video presentations comprising different areas of thoracic surgery and many other selected topics closely related to thoracic surgery and thoracic oncology, with special emphasis on diagnosis, staging and treatment of lung cancer. In addition, there will be breakfast sessions and lunch seminars specifically dedicated to relevant fields in thoracic surgery, and sessions of proffered papers in poster and video presentation format. A great effort has been made to present a programme with an outstanding content. In this meeting, particular attention has been given to the discussion time of the topics.
The Joint Meeting 2018 will take place in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, where the city originated and where the most emblematic public buildings are located: [ the Cathedral ], the imposing [ church of St. Maria del Mar ], one of the finest Gothic churches in Spain, and the [ Picasso Museum ]. Barcelona harbour and the modernist buildings by Antonio Gaudi, [ La Pedrera ] and [ La Casa Batlló ], are within walking distance of the Gothic Quarter. Autumn certainly is the best time of year to visit Barcelona and you can enjoy pleasant walks in the city.
We hope you will honour us with your active participation in this Fourth Joint Meeting 2018. We are looking forward to seeing familiar and new faces among us. We count on you to make the meeting a real educational and scientific success.
