On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee of the XXII World Congress of the ISHR and of the Latin American Section of the ISHR we are delighted to invite you to Buenos Aires to participate in what we expect to be a memorable Congress held from April 18th to 21st, 2016, at the wonderful location of Puerto Madero.
We are putting together an exciting and provocative scientific program covering a range of topics with an integral perspective, with the aim of establishing a real syncytium between basic research and clinical practice and between cardiovascular health and disease. We believe that this approach will give our attendees the clues to where the future of our field is heading. With that purpose, the ISHR Scientific Program Committee as well as the Local Scientific Program Committee have proposed an exquisite series of symposia and conferences. We are also delighted to announce that our Congress’s main attraction will be the Nobel Laureate Lecture delivered by Dr. Robert Lefkowitz. Not less important is what we think in the future will be considered a hallmark of all ISHR meetings, that is, to have an early career investigator pre-congress meeting. These events, introduced successfully in San Diego 2013, are specifically designed to highlight the interests and professional needs of young investigators and to encourage their transit along the scientific path.
Another aspect of this congress which we hope tempts you to participate is the programmed social activity. Buenos Aires has all the ingredients to fulfill this project, the city is vibrant with culture and attractions, the people are warm hearted and the weather in April will be enjoyable. We have scheduled a Gala Dinner with Tango Show at the historic Güemes Gallery which is a must see while you're in Buenos Aires. We also encourage you to take advantage of the unique location of the Madero district which is walking distance from the typical neighborhood of San Telmo and only minutes away from the station where you can catch a ferry and sail the La Plata river delta.
Finally, we encourage you to bring your dancing shoes not only to take some free Tango lessons, but also to join us in our attempt to unravel together the mysteries of the heart at the rhythm of tango!!!
We look forward to being your hosts and giving you the “Buenos Aires Experience”
