Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We have the pleasure to invite you to the 4th Central European Meeting on Nephrology (8th Czech-Austrian Meeting on Nephrology), which will be held in Vienna, Austria, on December 7-8, 2018. The meeting will be hosted under the auspices of the Austrian and Czech Societies of Nephrology, the Austrian Society of Transplantation, Transfusion and Genetics, as well as the European Society of Organ Transplantation.

As in previous years, it was our effort to prepare an inspiring scientific program that offers high-level lectures covering latest scientific highlights in nephrology and transplantation. We are very happy that we were able to gain numerous experts in the field, who will present cutting-edge topics and state-of-the-art overviews. We are hoping to create a platform for the vital exchange of knowledge to build and strengthen bridges between participants from all over Europe, and very much expect that the unique atmosphere of the meeting venue and its setting will stimulate a fruitful scientific dialogue.

We look forward to seeing you in Vienna!
