2024 ANNUAL MEETING Faro, Portugal



INTEC warmly welcomes you at our third annual meeting! This year, our annual meeting is organized by the team of Léonor Cancela and will take place in Faro, Portugal on September 12-13 2024. During this year’s meeting the masks will fall off as to whether calcification should be considered a friend or a foe in health and disease of patients. The local organizing committee has put together a titillating program for you to enjoy, with several esteemed experts in different aspects of calcification research and management as invited speakers. As usual, we have also reserved several presentation slots for early career researchers based on their abstract submissions. Because the workshop we organized during last year’s meeting was such a success, we have continued this tradition during the 2024 meeting with two exciting workshops on presentation skills and on science communication. Focussing on young researchers, the workshops are of course open to all interested to learn more about these topics. And talking about traditions: also this year there will be a meeting dinner followed by music and dance. In other words: there are many ways and opportunities to put your best foot forward during the 2024 INTEC annual meeting. We look forward to meeting you in Faro!
