Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 2018 International Coronary Congress (ICC), it is our great privilege to invite you to attend this academic event on Aug 2-5, 2018, at the National Convention Center in Beijing, China.

The International Coronary Congress, in the interests of being truly international, multidisciplinary and representative of the full heart team caring for coronary patients, has opted to partner with several professional medical societies and institutions. The past congresses in New York and New Deli had achieved remarkable success in developing comprehensive programs to promote best practices in surgical coronary revascularization that included the most innovative techniques and technologies from the leading minds in the field worldwide.

The ICC 2018 will be held together with the China Heart Congress (CHC) 2018. The scientific program in 2018 will continue to offer a multidisciplinary platform for clinical practitioners to discuss all aspects of coronary bypass surgery. Keynote lectures will be delivered by a distinguished international faculty, while the general program will rigorously cover the major controversies in coronary revascularization. The congress will also bring both prestigious surgeons and cardiologists together to discuss the latest advances on coronary revascularization strategies, quality control, training programs and the role of the heart team.

We sincerely hope you will join us at this exciting event and share your expertise in discussions with colleagues from China and around the world about advanced techniques and innovative clinical investigation of our field.

We appreciate your consideration and look forward to meeting you in Beijing.

Very sincerely,

Chairman, Organizing Committee, 2018 International Coronary Congress, Beijing
