Welcome

We would like to invite you to the 11th congress of the Vascular Access Society, which will take place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on 11-13 april 2019.

Almost 75 years after the first successful hemodialysis treatment by dr. Kolff in The Netherlands, we aim to organize a lively, interactive and high-quality conference that will bring together the international community of clinicians, vascular technologists, nurses and researchers, devoted to the important issue of vascular access for hemodialysis. The scientific program will provide a three-day meeting with state-of-the-arts lectures about new developments in clinical practice, basic research as well as the latest results from clinical trials. Furthermore, controversial topics will be discussed in pro-con debates and parallel sessions specifically for dialysis nurses will be organized as well. In addition, we will organize an interesting social program that allows you to experience the diversity of Rotterdam, renowned as a thriving, easy accessible cosmopolitan city, full of energy and innovation.

This year, the VAS congress will be a joint meeting with the Vascular Access Society of Britain and Ireland (VASBI).

We are looking forward welcoming you to Rotterdam!
