Dear Colleagues,

In addition to its various training events and activities, Turkish Society of Cardiology has planned to hold this year’s National Cardiology Congress in October at a high scientific level as always to meet the expectations on its 53rd anniversary.

The congress, as a leading scientific event both at the national and international level with a remarkable number of participants and high quality scientific content, is being designed to appeal to all participants in a satisfactory way and broad range of its scientific program and diversified flavors of social events.

The 32nd Congress will again take place in Antalya, a venue having successfully served our congresses in the past, but this time at the Regnum Carya Hotel and Congress Center.

We sustain our ambition to make our congress as the leading congress of cardiology in our region. In addition to our colleagues from the European Society of Cardiology, other colleagues from different continents will also attend this year’s congress. We expect increased attendance to our congress, in which we hosted almost 3000 people last year.

We’ve been working hard to prepare the best program for you. During our "Symposia", "Debates" and "How To Do" sessions, we will be updating our latest knowledge on cardiovascular diseases. Every session will take place with participation of esteemed speakers and discussants from Turkey and from around the globe. We strongly believe that our joint sessions with the ESC, ACC, Turkic World Cardiology Association, EHRA and EAPCI will be closely followed by the attendees.

The congress having strengthened more than ever with its international flavor will again be credited by the Turkish Medical Association and EBAC. As it was the case last year, the papers accepted for Oral and Poster Presentations after being evaluated by referees will be published in the Special Edition of the Anatolian Journal of Cardiology cited in the SCI-E index.

We will be more than happy to have you with us during our congress. Authors and colleagues participating with meticulously prepared papers and clinical cases on selected topics will be strengthening our congress. We owe gratitude to our referees, who have carefully reviewed high number of papers and cases with enthusiasm.

Hoping to see you on 20-23 October 2016 for the occasion of our 32nd National Cardiology Congress.
