I hope this message finds you well. I am writing today to give you an update on some new important features and enhancements for the TTS 2018 Madrid Congress, abstract deadline extension, and some of the great benefits that you and your Young Investigators may benefit from in attending the meeting.
The abstract deadline has officially been extended to December 6, 2017 due to general demand from the transplantation community. We have been made aware of a number of conflicting timelines on grant submissions, Thanksgiving holidays, and other commitments around the World. Despite overwhelming numbers of abstracts received, we want to make sure to get everyone’s abstract. This will be the only extension allowed. The abstracts already submitted are now being peer-reviewed as planned originally.
I hope you will join TTS and our local hosts, the Sociedad Española de Trasplante and Sociedad Madrileña de Trasplantes, to showcase one of the best organ donation systems in the world, to make new connections, to learn and to help us shape the future of transplantation.
