Welcome Message

​On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee and the MDS Foundation, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 15th International Symposium on Myelodysplastic Syndromes taking place in Copenhagen, Denmark from May 8-11, 2019. 

As in previous years, the Symposium will cover the most recent discoveries in MDS basic and translational research as well as all relevant clinical aspects of MDS diagnosis, prognosis, and management. The main lectures will be delivered by recognized international leaders in the field, and we look forward to including high-level research presentations, selected from the abstracts submitted by colleagues.

Furthermore, we are very happy to offer you the opportunity to visit wonderful Copenhagen in the spring – and it does not get better than that! Copenhagen is the lively capital of Denmark which features some of the happiest people in the world, the world’s oldest monarchy and some of the world’s best chefs. Enjoy everything from historic buildings, modern architecture and beautiful art to Tivoli gardens, harbor swims and alternative lifestyles in Christiania.

The Symposium venue, the Tivoli Conference Center, is a modern building located in the heart of the city, making everything accessible by foot or by bike! The venue is ideally located close to the main train station, and only 15 minutes by train from Copenhagen International airport, which has non-stop flights to all major cities throughout the world. Copenhagen has typical Danish weather = unpredictable, but May 2018 had hundreds of sunshine hours, so keep fingers crossed for 2019!

Join us for a vivid conference - and experience our special Danish way of life.

We look forward to seeing you all in Copenhagen!

Lars Kjeldsen, Jakob Werner Hansen and Kirsten Grønbæk
