Dear Friends,

We are delighted to invite you to the 47th Congress of European Society of Lymphology (ESL) which will be held between May 30 - June 1, 2024 in Istanbul, Türkiye.

The overall theme for the conference is “Connecting the Continents with Present and Future Strategies for Lymphedema and Related Disorders’’

The Congress will consist of keynote lectures, panels, educational workshops, interactive sessions, poster-oral presentations and meet-the-expert sessions of interest for both trainees and professionals, as well as clinicians and scientists. There will also be prizes and awards for oral and poster presentations and for young researchers. Parallel panels and workshops for wound care in venous and lymphatic pathologies will also take place.

The social programs during the congress will be attractive, in addition to pre/post congress tours to the amazing places near Istanbul.

Being the only city in the World straddling on two continents; having been a capital during two consecutive empires Christian and Islamic, and being the capital of Ottoman Empire for centuries, Istanbul remains historical, cultural and commercial pulse of the country. Its beauty lies in its ability to embrace its contradictions. Ancient and modern; religious and secular; Asia and Europe; mystical and earthly! The city's long historical background, museums, palaces, ancient and modern art centers, sailing in Bosphorus as well as outstanding shopping in bazaars, and delicious and unique Turkish Cuisine will welcome you to visit.

Aiming to share knowledge and experience about lymphological and related disorders, learn what we do not know, reinforce our practical knowledge and skills in workshops and panels, and reach the current evidence-based diagnostic and therapeutic approaches and future strategies; we wish you to reserve a place in your agenda and be together. It will be our great pleasure to welcome you to Istanbul for a unique experience to share and learn about the latest advances in research and practice in lymphology, while enjoying one of the most beautiful cities in the World, connecting the European and Asian Continents.

Mark your calendars for, May 30 - June 1, 2024 ESL in Istanbul.

Warm regards,

Pınar Borman
Congress President
