WFUMB 2009 e-News #5

CEO's Message

WFUMB2009 in Sydney is off to a record-breaking start.

A record number of 700 abstract submissions have been received prior to the closing date of 23 January 2009 and the reviewers are actively working on them. Abstracts are still open for e-posters and they continue to come in from all around the world.

The Program Committee has designed a comprehensive timetable. Delegates will have the choice of 285 Presentation Lectures, 4 plenary sessions, 112 workshops and 100 proffered papers presenting a grand total of more than 500 topics on the all aspects and the very latest for ultrasound in medicine.

Hosting a successful event such as the World Congress in Medical Ultrasound requires good event management support as well as committed sponsor support. The organising committee led by Professor Rob Gibson (Congress Convener) is on schedule with great support from the ASUM Secretariat Head Office and the conference organisers, ICMS.

As we get closer to the Congress opening, exhibition booth space bookings are filling up quickly.

Exhibitor’s space has already been booked by companies such as: Aloka Co., Ltd, ARDMS, BK Medical, Department of State & Regional Development, Elsevier Australia, Hitachi Medical Corporation, I-Med Network, Inderlec, Lantheus Medical Imaging, Nanosonics Ltd, Shantou Institute of Ultrasonics Instruments Co. Ltd, Siemens Ltd, Signostics, SonoScape Co Ltd, Sonosite, SuperSonic Imaging, The Int'l Vasa Previa Fondation, Zonare.

If you or your company is considering an exhibit at WFUMB 2009 contact or as soon as possible.

The commitment we are getting from industry for this extremely unique Sydney Congress is fantastic. ASUM is grateful to major sponsors Toshiba, GE Healthcare, Philips and Medison for their continued support. Each company has booked floor space in the exhibitor’s area and that means we can expect ‘state of the art’ technology to be on display.

I am also pleased to welcome new sponsors ARDMS, Signostics and wish them a successful World Congress.
