32nd Meeting of the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons


Dear Colleagues

The Organizing Committee of the 32nd ESTS Annual Meeting, to be held in Barcelona in May, 2024, welcomes you, after the rewarding experience of the last Annual Meeting in Milan.
Like in the previous meetings, this 32nd ESTS Annual Meeting will consist of a mixture of oral and video presentations comprising different areas of thoracic surgery and many other selected topics closely related to General Thoracic Surgery, in addition to the classic sessions like Brompton, Young Investigator, extraordinary lectures and others. A great effort is made by the Program Committee to present a program with an outstanding content and particular attention will be given to the discussion time of the topics. The personal relationships are also very important for this exchange of experiences, so we will have several and large spaces to meet together.
We hope you will honor us with your active participation in the 32nd ESTS Annual Meeting. We are looking forward to seeing familiar and new faces among us. We count on you to make the meeting a real educational and scientific success.

Dear Colleagues and Friends!

On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Program Committee, it is a great honor to invite you to the 32nd Conference of ESTS in Barcelona. The Society has worked very hard to provide an exciting opportunity to network and be informed about the newest trends in thoracic surgery.
Today, we live in a revolutionary time of thoracic surgery and lung cancer treatment. During this conference, there will be many presentations and discussions about the hot topics in our daily practice, such as robotic thoracic surgery, the advantage of perioperative immunotherapy, and sublobar resection. New trends in the techniques and background of our practice will be introduced in the Training Village, which is a very popular event among the members every year.

Dear Trainees! If you are at the beginning of your career and interested in clinical studies, you can find many projects to join or get inspiration from the presentations to build your own clinical study.

Dear Experts! As icons, you are responsible for the young generation. Please join the conference as your personality and guidance motivate them.

Dear Colleagues and Friends!

With the organization of the Annual Meeting, ESTS makes it possible for you to accomplish our Mission. The Mission is possible; we request you to be a part of that.

Jozsef Furak
President of ESTS
