Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to join us for the ATS 2018 International Conference, May 18‒23, in San Diego, California! This event will bring together more than 16,000 of our colleagues from around the world to learn the very latest in pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.

ATS 2018 will connect you to world-renowned leaders, cutting-edge science, and groundbreaking research through more than 500 sessions led by 800 experts, and poster sessions and presentations on approximately 6,900 abstracts and case reports. Whether you’re a clinician, researcher, or a trainee who is assessing your professional pathways, the insights and knowledge you’ll gain at ATS 2018 will help keep you at the forefront of your field.

While the learning and training you’ll receive at ATS 2018 is unmatched, the conference is also the place for respiratory medicine practitioners, scientists, and basic, translational, and clinical researchers to collaborate on solutions to shared challenges. You’ll have abundant opportunity to engage with colleagues from more than 90 countries, not only through learning sessions, but also through a wide array of networking events that will take place throughout the conference!

Many key findings and discoveries are announced first at the ATS International Conference. ATS 2018 will continue this tradition of bringing you the latest clinical and scientific advances, and will serve as a forum for those who shape the future of medicine. Here are just a few of the cutting edge sessions from the 2017 conference in Washington, DC:

Each year, the Exhibit Hall is filled with buzz and excitement as many new products launch during the conference. At ATS 2018, you will have the opportunity to explore new technologies and services, experience hands-on demonstrations of innovative products, and chat with representatives from more than 200 organizations.

We hope you’ll join us next May in San Diego, and look forward to welcoming you to ATS 2018 — where “today’s science meets tomorrow’s care!”
