The 11th World Congress for Microcirculation (WCM2018) will be held at the Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver, BC, Canada from September 9-13, 2018. This marks the first return of the Congress to Canada since its inaugural meeting in Toronto in 1975.

The Congress is organized and held on a rotating 3-5 year basis in a unique location corresponding to a regional Microcirculation society. Since 1975 the meeting has attracted on average 600 delegates from regional Microcirculation Societies from around the world, including Japan, China, Australia and New Zealand, North America, Britain, and the European Union. 

The theme of the Congress is microcirculation in health and disease with a focus on emerging research and technologies. Its objective is to advance research and education in the many areas of microcirculation. With strong representation from the International Scientific Advisory Committee, with representatives from England, Europe, North and South America and the Pacific Rim, the Local Organizing Committee has developed an exciting meeting which reflects the growing research areas of microcirculation and the pivotal role these fields play in translational applications. Congress symposia will include inflammation, permeability, vascular control and angiogenesis, to name a few.
