Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure and honor to invite you to the 14th Annual Congress of Turkish Thoracic Society which will be held in Starlight Hotel Congress Center, in Antalya-Side between 13 - 17 April 2011.

In this congress, there will be two new types of sessions in the scientific program beside the courses, symposia, pro-con discussions, lectures and case presentations.  

The first is a session for young investigators, where they will have an opportunity to meet with foreign scientists who have gained international success in their own fields and also to get information about the admission process and work conditions in USA and EU. All foreign scientists who participate in the congress will be invited to this meeting; thus they will be able to come together in small groups for interactive communication.

The second type of session has been planned for our colleagues working in non-teaching hospitals and smaller centers. One of the meeting halls will be dedicated to the sessions aiming to update their knowledge on clinical issues of daily practice. Another aim will be to discuss national health policies and problems related with specialty training.

We have also organised an amazing social program beginning with the opening concert and will go on with live performances of music, dance courses, drama, wine tasting and bowling tournament at nights.

Our 14th  Congress will be held in Side, one of the major ancient sites of Anatolia, which is famous for its historical heritage and natural beauty. We aim to get together with all our participants and share with them a congress with a rich scientific and social program.

We wish an effective and successful congress this year, just like every year.

Yours sincerely,


Oya itil
