It is my great pleasure to invite you to the Ninth International Congress of the Croatian Society of Nuclear Medicine, May 04-07, 2017, which will take place in beautiful Rovinj – a historic and charming little town on the western coast of Istria in Croatia, the largest peninsula on the Adriatic coastline. Its rich and historical heritage dating from the 3rd century A.D. is the most interesting part of exploring Rovinj. With narrow streets and small squares, the town view is dominated by the baroque St. Euphemia’s Church. The unique city of Rovinj has over 60 km of shoreline and over 2000 ha of green surfaces and park forests, such as the Golden Cape Park Forest.
The congress venue will be placed on Sveti Andrija island (Croatian for Saint Andrew, Italian: Isola di Sant’Andrea), one of the the 16 islands, islets and reefs situated near the old city. Saint Andrew island is a fifteen-minute sail away from the town center, passing by Katarina Island, Lona and Zlatni rt bays that will surely enchant you with their beauty.
Since the first Congress of the Croatian Society of Nuclear Medicine in Zagreb in 1994, we have seen many important developments in the field of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging with a significant number of eminent lecturers going through our lecture rooms, giving the chance to the international audience to be informed about the progress in our field.
Our next congress will be the perfect opportunity to meet many of the world experts again and to present our own achievements in the form of oral or poster presentations.
We shall continue our praxis of Continuing Medical Education (CME) which will be credited by the EACCME and by the Croatian Medical Chamber.
We are particularly glad to announce the 12th Alpe-Adria Nuclear Medicine Symposium organized by the Austrian, Italian, Slovenian and Croatian Nuclear Medicine Societies which will be held on the same venue, on Saturday, May 6th. This Symposium will confirm a high level of collaboration among our Societies.
Simultaneously with the main program, the Annual Meeting of the Croatian Society of Nuclear Medicine Technologists will be held on May 04-07, 2017. All aspects of nuclear medicine diagnostics and therapy, as seen by technologists, will be considered.
Don’t miss the opportunity to explore Rovinj and the beautiful Istria. Joining our social events will give you a chance to meet your colleagues in person and discuss with them the most interesting topics of nuclear medicine.
On the following link you can see the preliminary program of the Congress:
Croatia is one of the most beautiful countries in Europe and we shall do our best to offer you a very pleasant stay and make you feel at home while being with us.
We cordially invite you and look forward to seeing you in Rovinj in May 2017!
