Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Bratislava and to the Congress of Cardiovascular Prevention in Pre-Elderly and Elderly Individuals (CPPEI) – New Achievements in Research Diagnosis and Treatment.

The Congress has been designed to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest research developments in cardiovascular medicine, as well as responses to the most debatable issues primarily in the areas of the prevention of hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, coronary artery disease, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, stroke and acute coronary syndromes in Pre-Elderly and Elderly Individuals.

Many distinguished cardiologists and scientists have joined the faculty and will take part in this Congress. Papers will be presented in the form of plenary sessions, symposia, workshops, oral presentations and posters and will include superb scientific material that will be carefully selected by the Scientific Abstract Review Committee.

We would like to encourage the pharmaceutical and manufacturing industry to generously support the congress in this very important sector of Cardiovascular Care in older adults.

We hope that you will enjoy the Congress and that your interaction with your colleagues from many different countries will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas that will be personally rewarding. We also hope and trust that you will enjoy your visit to the very beautiful and historic city of Bratislava, in June 2016.

With warm regards,
