Dear friends and colleagues,

Acute Cardiac Care has been undergoing a substantial transformation in recent years as the population ages and our patients become more complex and require more multidisciplinary care. The International Conference on Acute Cardiac Care, held biennially in Israel, has long become one of the leading scientific events for acute cardiac care worldwide. In this meeting we cover the broad spectrum of contemporary acute cardiac care, including acute coronary syndromes, anti-thrombotic therapy, reperfusion and revascularization, acute heart failure, management of arrhythmias in the acute setting and general intensive care.

Our 11th meeting will take place in Tel Aviv on June 11-12, 2018 and will bring together health care professionals from all relevant disciplines, including cardiologists, intensivists, anesthesiologists, internists, cardiac surgeons, nurses, paramedics and other allied professionals. The meeting is held under the auspices of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association of the ESC and the Israel Heart Society and is a major scientific event for all health care professionals working in acute cardiac care.

Tel Aviv and Israel offer rich opportunities for tourism and entertainment with unique historic and cultural sites as well as a vibrant, sea-side experience.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we look forward to welcoming you to Tel Aviv.
