24th International Fibrinogen Workshop (21-24 June 2016) Meeting Summary

By: Marlien Pieters (Conference Organizer)

The XXIVth International Fibrinogen Workshop was hosted from 21 – 24 June, 2016 at the Skukuza rest camp in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Fifty nine delegates from 12 countries registered for the meeting. Ten state-of-the-art lectures and 32 oral presentations together with 17 poster presentations were packed into the scientific programme with contributions from more than 190 authors. Based on feedback received from the attendees, it was a very successful meeting both in terms of scientific content and selection of the venue. Being rather informal, the venue and conference setup lent itself to relaxed collegial interaction and scientific discussion. Apart from excellent scientific presentations, delegates were also treated to early morning game drives allowing them to experience the African bush and wild-life first hand. On the last evening, the conference dinner was attended (in addition to the delegates), by two resident hyena’s who could not wait for all of us to leave, so they could enjoy their own feast of left overs! From the organisers’ side, we would like to thank everyone who attended the meeting and travelled all the way to South Africa – without you, it would not have been the success that it was!
