SSC 2018 will be the organisation’s last standalone SSC meeting; from 2019 the ISTH will switch to holding an annual global event.

More than 2,000 clinicians, researchers, educators, healthcare professionals, and industry partners from more than 94 countries worldwide are expected to attend the meeting at the Convention Centre Dublin from 18-21 July. Delegates will be invited to attend plenaries, education and breakout sessions led by SSC subcommittees, and browse the exhibition hall featuring organisations from around the world.

The ISTH will work closely with a local organising committee of experts led by SSC 2018 meeting president and senior lecturer at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Dermot Cox, to stage the event. SSC 2018 will be organised in collaboration with Conference Partners International, based in Dublin.

"We look forward to offering an engaging meeting platform for scientific and clinical working groups that lay the foundation for future breakthroughs and allow the field to collaborate toward patient-centric solutions," said Cox.
