Dear friends and colleagues,

I am delighted to invite you to Hamburg for the 15th International Symposium on Maritime Health (ISMH15). It is a great privilege for the German Maritime Health Association to be hosting this prestigious event. ISMH15 will be held in cooperation with the Institute for Occupational and Maritime Medicine and the HafenCity University.

The conference venue at the recently opened HafenCity University is located directly on the waterfront at the seaport’s edge. It is the ideal place to discuss results of scientific research as well as its practical implications in the context of healthy working and living at sea and port.

The conference programme will include keynote lectures, invited presentations, abstract based orals and poster sessions, panel discussions and working group meetings. To enlarge the scientific scope, we are planning additional interdisciplinary satellite symposia and workshops. We will be very pleased to receive your conference contribution via the online abstract submission: .

I encourage you to come to Hamburg and to be part of ISMH15. Besides the conference itself, discover the vibrant historical and cultural heritage and the various sights of the city, which make this maritime metropolis so attractive and unique for visitors worldwide. The social programme and additional tourist offers will give you plenty of opportunities to dive into the heart of the city.

We are looking forward to your participation and contribution.

See you in Hamburg!

Prof. Dr. Volker Harth (MD, MPH)

President ISMH15
Chairman of the German Maritime Health Association
