Dear colleagues,

We are most happy and honoured to invite you to the 9th Annual Congress of Turkish Thoracic Society (TTS), the largest congress in pulmonary medicine in Turkey. The congress will take place in Sungate Port Royal Hotel located in Beldibi region of Kemer in Antalya between April, 19-23, 2006.

Annual congresses organized by TTS exhibit marked development over the past years in terms of scientific basis and continuous increase in national and international participation. The goal of TTS 9th Annual Congress is to overview and discuss latest advances in topics related with various aspects of pulmonary medicine with well known experts in this field. Problems in public health related with lung diseases and training in pulmonary medicine will also be covered.

The scientific program of the 9th congress is the result of close collaboration of fourteen scientific working groups and fifteen branches of Turkish Thoracic Society with the representatives of regional thoracic societies. Scientists from Europe and USA as well as their Turkish colleagues will take part and we hope lively discussions will take place. Topics related with regional lung health will be discussed in sessions performed by the participation of FEMTOS (Forum of Eurasia-Mediterranean Thoracic Societies).

We are happy to announce you that our congress has been accredited by the European board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP) for the first time.

The congress venue is located in Antalya, the Mediterrenean city where sea, sun, natural beauties and historical heritage constitute a perfect harmony. The scientific program will be integrated with a lively social program.

We look forward to welcome you to TTS 2006 Annual Congress which we hope to be a success in both scientific and social aspects.
