Since October 2019, we have been working collaboratively as the Congress Organizing Committee and the Turkish Society of Thoracic Surgery Executive Committee to organize a scientifically and socially satisfying congress for you.
As is well known, our biennial congress is the most important platform to gather all our colleagues for discussing the latest professional and scientific advances.
For this reason, we are taking into account the survey data we collected from you during the preparation phase of the congress, suggestions of working groups and branch administrations, feedback of previous congresses and your individual opinions and suggestions.
While making the scientific program, we are paying attention to both the current knowledge that our colleagues working in the field can use in the clinical practice and also who carry out academic studies.
The scientific quality of our congress will improve with the submission of your abstracts. Abstracts will be evaluated as posters, oral presentations and selected oral presentations. 100 participants will be selected among the residents and surgeons who will present oral presentations will be encouraged with a scholarship and care will be taken to hold as many oral presentations as possible.
In addition to the carefully prepared scientific program, we will also be organizing a joyful and sincere social program for you to relieve the tiredness of the busy working schedule and have a good time with your colleagues who you have not seen for a long time.
We are waiting for your participation and contributions for our scientific feast, which the current national and international developments of thoracic surgery will be shared.
