Announcement of the Joint Conference of the 44th International Lung Sounds Association Conference and the 44th Japanese Lung Sounds Association Conference

Nagoya Castle in the heart of Nagoya city

It is a pleasure to announce that the joint conference of the 44th International Lung Sounds Association (ILSA) Conference and the 44th Japanese Lung Sounds Association (JLSA) Conference will be held in Nagoya, Japan on November 10th, 2019 (Sunday). This year’s joint conference was decided to be held in memory of the late president of ILSA Dr. Sadamu Ishikawa who suddenly passed away in April 2019. In aspiration for continuing lung sounds research, JLSA decides to host the 44th ILSA annual conference, in conjunction with the 44th annual conference of JLSA, as a Dr. Ishikawa memorial conference in Nagoya on November 10th, 2019 (Sunday). Consequently, however, the conference will be held in a limited framework. The joint session is planned to have a half day program where presentations in all fields of lung sounds research are welcome. Abstracts for oral presentation are due by September 15th for those who wish to present their works. Kindly RSVP to yonemaru@yanagibashihp.com if you plan to attend the conference. Venue is the main conference room of Suzuken headquarter located in central Nagoya city (8 Higashikatabata-machi, Higashi-ku, Nagoya, Japan). Detailed information on venue will be provided to those RSVP.

Hope all going well with members of ILSA.
