Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to join us at the 2022 Joint International Congress of ILTS, ELITA & LICAGE in Istanbul, Turkey, May 4-7, 2022. The Congress connects the world of liver transplantation, and we are proud of its reputation for the quality of science, its international flavor and its strong multi-disciplinary approach.

The continuous development of the Congress is an ILTS priority. In 2022, you can look forward to a robust scientific program, giving you valuable input for your day-to-day practice. Special formats like the Pre-meeting Symposium, Meet the Experts Sessions, and workshops will enhance the educational content of the Congress. Attending ILTS 2022 will allow you to discuss the latest advances in the care of liver transplantation patients and receive state-of-the-art updates in clinical and basic science.

Why Istanbul? Istanbul is changing – it is dynamic, it is curious and diverse – many of the characteristics of the ILTS Congress. Turkey is one of the world leaders in living liver donor transplantation, and there is much to learn. East really does meet west in Istanbul.


We are looking forward to seeing you face to face – Let’s Meet in Istanbul!
