On behalf of the
Scientific and Local Organizing Committees 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 in 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
