Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,

The Turkish Thoracic Society is the largest organisation in the Turkish pulmonary community with 3900 members.

Members will  get together again  next year to share problems, to find  solutions , to learn from each other and of course to enjoy meeting with colleagues.

We are happy  to invite you to the 18th Annual Congress of TTS which will be held in 1st – 5th April 2015, in Titanic Deluxe Hotel Convention Center, Belek – Antalya.

Our motto is "Multae voces unitus spiritus"...  which is in harmony with the aim of our congress, which includes sessions providing  a milieu to unite independent environments, unique experiences and opinions in a friendly way.

In our congresses, the level of the scientific program is always high.   Once again, in this year, look forward to sharing such an outstanding event with you.

We believe that our congress will be a common ground for improving the collaboration with international societies and associations, facilitated by the presence of representatives  from the  American Thoracic Society and the European Respiratory Society.

Besides our extensive scientific meetings, we will have the chance of meeting with friends old and new, with an  enjoyable social program.  We will refresh our spirits, minds and hearts.

We proudly invite our esteemed colleagues to the Turkish Thoracic Society 18th Annual Congress to add their voice to ours and to become stronger in a single spirit.

With our kindest regards,


 Göksel Altınışık
Congress Secretary
