We are pleased to invite you to attend Artery 9 which will be held from Thursday 10th to Saturday 12th September 2009 in Queens’ College, Cambridge, UK. This conference follows on from previous highly successful ARTERY meetings, which have established a tradition in the field. ARTERY 9 will cover an expanded list of topics related to large artery structure and function through keynote lectures, abstract presentations and practical demonstrations. This year, special emphasis will be given to novel imaging techniques, vascular calcification, and mathematical modeling of blood flow and wall stress. The Artery Society aims to be the bridge between all societies dealing with arterial structure, function and physiology, fostering exchanges of ideas and novel research. Delegates of these societies are warmly invited to actively participate in ARTERY 9, and joint sessions will be held with working groups from the European Society of Hypertension and the European Society of Cardiology. We welcome abstracts for both oral and poster presentations dealing with clinical research, experimental studies, epidemiology, biomechanical, methodological, and genetic research related to large artery structure and function. The presentation of data at this meeting will provide the opportunity for scientific interaction and discussion with a highly informed audience. The Society will provide prestigious prizes for the best oral presentation by a young investigator and best poster, together with two Career Development Awards for more established researchers. All accepted abstracts will be published in the official journal of the Society – ARTERY Research later in the year. This year, accommodation and meals will be provided for all participants in Queens’ College as part of their registration fee, allowing delegates to use the opportunities between formal sessions to interact, learn from each other and foster on-going collaboration with researchers from all over Europe. We look forward very much to welcoming you to Cambridge in 2009, in what is the 800th anniversary of the University’s foundation.
