We are delighted to cordially invite you to the 12th MUNICH VASCULAR CONFERENCE (MAC), which will take place on December 6-8, 2023. Since the pandemic is over, we are more than happy that the 12th MAC will be organized again as a face-to-face symposium here in Munich at the University Hospital of the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
The 12th MAC will continue to be a platform of mutual exchange between vascular clinicians and colleagues from translational and basic vascular research. Both sides will again benefit from each other.
In 2019 we experienced a record participation of more than 600 attendees, who again highly appreciated the choice of topics, the outstanding quality of the presentations from an outstanding faculty and the ideal opportunity for discussions. Since the 11th MAC attracted far more than 1.000 online-participants, the 12th MAC will also include some streamed main sessions live from the main auditorium.
Please have a look at our website, where all main topics are listed. You can see that the 12th MAC will address the whole spectrum of vascular diseases. Please consider also to submit an abstract and to present your own data and experiences to our multinational auditorium in one of the main or the poster sessions respectively. The “Short Communications” sessions will be reserved for case presentations or research projects in progress.
The 12th MAC will also offer a series of technical workshops and courses, led by very experienced colleagues. Finally, our “Meet the Expert” sessions will be an option to personally interact with international vascular opinion leaders.
We very much look forward to welcoming you personally in December 2023. Munich is a lovely place especially in the weeks before Christmas. So, inviting your partner or your family for an extended weekend in Munich in early December 2023 might be a great idea!
More information will be available very soon at www.mac-conference.com.
