During the recent TTS Council Retreat (March 23-24), held in Vancouver - Canada, the TTS Council agreed that the TTS 2018 Congress should be held earlier than originally planned to facilitate greater participation from European members.

The Congress will now be held from June 30 to July 5, 2018 at the IFEMA Congress Centre in Madrid, Spain.

Stay tuned for our congress website launch (to be announced in a future issue of the Tribune Pulse).

Your opinion is important to us! The Scientific Program Committee of TTS 2018 invites YOU to submit your ideas and recommendations for the program by April 24, 2017.


The SPC is looking for feedback in the following areas:

Keynote presentation topics should be applicable to a great majority of the audience and not focus on a niche topic. This year's program theme is OUTCOME DRIVEN. This theme would ideally be reflected in the presentation.

General presentation topic suggestions will be provided to the State-of-the-Art leads for the planning of SOTA sessions and Early-Morning Symposia.

Innovation. TTS 2018 is eager to highlight innovative presentations. You have the opportunity to propose a session / presentation that is novel. This implies that the topic is not currently listed as one of the SOTA topics and has never been part of a TTS meeting. It is assumed that you, as the submitter, would be the session organizer.

Feedback. Please share your general ideas and recommendations regarding the program and the congress at large (poster sessions, mobile app, catering, competitions, exhibits etc.).
