Aarhus, Denmark, 24-27 April 2023

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the biannual meeting of the European Society for Microcirculation in Aarhus, 24-27 April 2023.
The importance of the microcirculation is continually being highlighted and is receiving more attention due to the key role of small vessels in many pathological conditions than was appreciated a few years back. Examples of these conditions are impaired cognitive function and some forms of ischemic heart disease especially in women. In addition, the microcirculation is important for many other conditions, where new information is constantly being made available. We feel, therefore, that microcirculation research will receive increased recognition in the coming years.
The organizing committee is making every effort to arrange a great meeting with quality presentations, ample time for discussion and professional and social interactions.
Come and be inspired by colleagues studying microcirculation from many different perspectives in Aarhus in 2023!
More details including the preliminary programme, registration and abstract submission details (deadline 15th January 2023)  can be found on the conference webpage:

Awards available associated with the Congress.

We hope to meet you all in Aarhus!
Best wishes ESM Meeting Organising Team
