FOREWORD

Dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased to inform you that the 6th Meeting of European Section and 7th Meeting of North American Section of the International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences will be jointly held during September 10-14, 2019 in Kragujevac and Vrnjacka Banja (Serbia). For the last 18 years, the Serbian Physiological Society and Serbian Association for Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology Research organized a series of national and internationally recognized congresses and meetings: the conferences of physiological sciences with international participation on environmental risk factors, oxidative biology and human health (Zlatibor 2001; Belgrade/Zrenjanin, 2003; Kragujevac 2004), the first congress of physiological sciences with international participation (Belgrade, 2005), the satellite symposium of the XIV International Symposium on Atherosclerosis (Belgrade, 2006), the scientific conference with international participation on nutrition, treatment and cardiovascular risk management (Novi Sad, 2007), the scientific conference with international participation devoted to our famous physiologist Richard A. Burian (Belgrade, 2008), second congress of physiological sciences with international participation (Kragujevac, 2009), the scientific conference with international participation on preclinical testing of active substances and cancer research with international symposium on anti-cancer agents, cardiotoxicity and neurotoxicity (Kragujevac, 2011) and under the auspice of EU 7th framework program, the joint scientific meeting of the national physiological societies organized by the Slovak Physiological Society and Serbian Physiological Society (Kovacica 2013), third congress of physiological sciences with international participation (Belgrade, 2014), second European meeting of the International Academy of Cardovascular Sciences (Belgrade, 2015), second joint scientific meeting of the national physiological societies organized by the Slovak Physiological Society and Serbian Physiological Society (Smolenice 2016, Slovakia), the joint scientific meeting of the national physiological societies organized by the Hungarian Physiological Society and Serbian Physiological Society (Subotica 2017), satellite symposium of the 8th International Congress of Pathophysiology (Kragujevac, 2018), fourth congress of physiological sciences of Serbia with international participation (Nis, 2018), and a few CME meetings in the field of atherosclerosis, vascular biology, risk factors and health. These meetings were recognized internationally, attracted a worldwide scientific audience, and had been supported by the Federation of European Physiological Societies (FEPS), the International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS), the International Society for Pathophysiology (ISP), the International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences (IACS), and the International Atherosclerosis Society (IAS). Such success in former years directed us to plan and organize this cardiovascular event in order to improve the research background and make an easier approach to global research cooperation. Our wish is having this meeting traditional and progressive, and to attract the researchers from abroad and especially from surrounding countries. This time meeting is more directed to cardiometabolic research, risk factors, oxidative stress and inflammation, genetics, epidemiology, prevention, nutrition, exercise and hyperbaric physiology however translational and applied aspects in cardiovascular research will be also presented. The scientific program will include a broad mix of topics from molecular, cellular and integrative aspects of cardiovascular sciences going ahead to the scientific problems covered by the international scientific community.
We really hope that this meeting is a unique opportunity for all participants to exchange their ideas and give their own contribution to this fruitful cooperation. Finally, spa resort Vrnjacka Banja, located in middle part of Serbia is not only the place where you will find typical Serbian spirit of life, but also the place which is known for the worldwide recognized sacral and historical objects and monuments, museums, galleries etc.
We appreciate your participation and wishing you a warm welcome to Vrnjacka Banja and middle part of Serbia.

On behalf of the Organizing & Program Committee
Vladimir Jakovljevic and Dragan M. Djuric
