Once every 3 years, the BIC meeting is organized in the Apulia region of Italy, with the aim of providing a 3-day full-immersion in the newest research on coagulation factors, hemophilias, von Willebrand factor and ADAMTS13. The meeting has a well-established tradition, being now at its 8th edition, and is quite popular among the most distinguished international experts for the speakers’ commitment to bring their most novel findings. It is jointly organized by the Angelo Bianchi Bonomi Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center in Milan and a distinguished Scientific Committee. The meeting will be conveniently located not far from the International Airports of Bari and Brindisi on the Adriatic Sea Coast.

The 7th edition that took place in 2010 reached 320 participants. This small meeting has proved to be unusually appealing to researchers for the natural setting of the location and the possibility to closely interact with the experts in an informal way during the many social activities that are organized on site. For this reason the social activities planned are made with the specific purpose to enhance such interaction.

The 2014 meeting will run through 3 days, with participants arriving on the evening of Thursday 2nd October 2014, and the actual sessions from Friday through all Sunday 5th October.

Our faculty is composed of the most acknowledged international experts who commit to present their most recent original data. The Conference Programme will therefore reflect the real hot topics in the field.

Ample room is devoted to participants other than those invited, because each day there will be a display of posters, followed by discussion. The submitted abstracts will undergo peer-review and be published in a journal and a booklet for distribution at the conference. The best abstracts will be presented in a special session of the Conference programme.

There will be room, as in the past, to organize corporate-sponsored symposia, whose topics and speakers will be agreed with the Scientific Committee of the Conference in order to ensure homogenous content and standards with the Scientific Programme.

We encourage you to save the date and join our mailing list so that we can provide you with updates on the programme and abstract deadlines as soon as they become available.
