Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that The Controversies in Thrombosis and Hemostasis Congress (CiTH) will be held in Berlin, Germany, October 30-November 1, 2014.

CiTH is a ‘concept congress’ dealing mainly with controversial issues in the format of debates and discussions allowing ample time for speaker-participant interaction.

Congresses are becoming more and more specialized and monothematic, allowing limited time to fully discuss clinical meaning and the line between Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) and working theories or ideas that are premature to implement into practice. CiTH addresses this need by facilitating effective debate on unresolved clinical and therapeutic dilemmas, supported by expert opinions resulting in agreement on timely issues.

The ability to discuss controversial topics with emphasis on clinical solutions in cases where no agreed-upon answers exist provides clinicians with an insight and a take-home message that ameliorates treatment in the most difficult situations.

We would like to invite you to join us in shaping and bringing to light a provocative program, and to contribute to a successful and invigorating congress.
