ESH 2016 Annual Meeting

June 10 – 13, 2016
Palais des Congrès de Paris
Paris, France


Dear Friends, Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 26th Meeting of the European Society of Hypertension (ESH) which will be held in Paris, France, June 10-13, 2016.

As you may know, Paris has been a pioneer city in the emergence and development of the management and research on arterial hypertension and cardiovascular disorders in Europe and has hosted the successful 14th ESH Meeting in Paris in 2004.

The scientific program will continue the tradition of the previous ESH/ISH meetings and will include:

  • Original research with oral and poster presentations
  • State-of-the-Art lectures
  • Plenary sessions
  • Joint sessions with other Societies
  • Debates
  • Topical workshops
  • Breakfast seminars
  • Meet-the-expert sessions
  • Clinical cases
  • Training session in new techniques
  • Satellite Symposia organised by industry

The meeting will cover a large area of knowledge in the field not only of hypertension but also of other cardiovascular and metabolic disorders related to hypertension. We deem to pay a particular attention to new technologies, such as innovative devices, new communicating tools and biological “omics” research.

The presence of opinion leaders and experts from all around the world shall ensure the success of the meeting. 
We expect a large number of investigators, researchers, specialist physicians and general practitioners from all parts of Europe, but also a special attendance from French speaking countries from other parts of the world. Our friends and colleagues from North, Central and South America, Asia and Australia will also be particularly welcome.

The meeting will be held in Paris, “Ville Lumière”, one of the world’s most attractive destinations.

The Palais des Congrès is located in the west part of the city, close to the Champs-Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe within walking distance from numerous hotels. It is also a well-known location for shows, concerts and stores. Participants should be able to enjoy the beauty of Paris, either before or after the meeting, as well as the rest of France.

We cordially invite all of you to join us in the ESH 2016 Paris meeting.

Prof Xavier Jeunemaitre
President of the ESH 2016 Meeting

Future Scientific Meetings

The ESH Annual Meeting is held in Milan every second year (odd numbered years) and in other European cities on alternate (even numbered) years. If an ISH (International Society of Hypertension) meeting is to be held in Europe, it is likely that the ESH and ISH meetings will be arranged jointly. This is the case in 2020, when the two meetings will be organised together in Glasgow.

Future ESH Meetings:

  • 2016 – Paris, June 10-13
  • 2017 – Milan
  • 2018 – Barcelona
  • 2019 – Milan
  • 2020 – Glasgow (joint meeting ESH/ISH)
