Welcome Letter

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 13th International Symposium on Respiratory Diseases (ISRD) & ATS in China Forum 2017 which will take place from 17-19 November 2017 in the beautiful city of Shanghai.

ISRD & ATS is constantly evolving and attracting more and more international experts and delegates. The attendees of the 13th meeting in 2017 came from over 21 regions – a big thanks to all who made this happened.

Our scientific program line-up will bring you the best from American Thoracic Society (ATS), leading experts from Europe and China to share their insights in the latest clinical development and strategies in the management of respiratory diseases. We hope ISRD & ATS 2017 will be a platform for existing collaborations to reconnect and enable the discovery and formation of new collaborations between peers. We invite you to use this unique opportunity to present your research and exchange your experiences in all related respiratory disease topics by submitting an abstract (Abstract submission from 1 May 2017 to 31 August 2017). The top ranking abstracts will be presented orally and a large area will be dedicated to poster presentations, the perfect platform to meet peers and colleagues. As in previous years, travel grants will be available to a number of top ranking abstract presenters.

Shanghai, a city with a wealth of historical, cultural and social attractions will undoubtedly be the perfect addition to complete your congress experience! This fast growing city never ceases to amaze so please make your plans early, as this promises to be a congress to remember!

We cordially look forward to welcoming you in Shanghai this November!
