Meetings in SATS

The Scandinavian Association of Thoracic Surgery arranges two meetings each year; the Annual Meeting in SATS (now called the Joint Scandinavian Conference in Cardiothoracic Surgery) and the Annual Meeting in Scandinavian Society for Research in Cardiothoracic Surgery (SSRCTS).

The Annual Meeting in SATS:
The Joint Scandinavian Conference in Cardiothoracic Surgery

The SATS main meeting is normally held in the last half of August and the host country of the meeting rotates between the associated countries. The city and the meeting place in each country must be accepted by the Secretary General, and is decided on at the general assembly which takes place during the annual meeting. At the general assembly, a president for the next annual meeting as well as a place and time of the meeting at least two years in advance is chosen. The president of the annual meeting sets up the organization committee in agreement with the Secretary General.

The Annual Meeting in SSRCTS:
On Cardiac, Vascular, and Thoracic Research

The Annual Meeting in SSRCTS normally takes place in February in Geilo. The president of SSRCTS is elected by the board of SATS for 3 years and can be re-elected. The president of SSRCTS is also a full member of the board of SATS.
