Dear Friends and Colleagues,

It is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the XV. Mediterranean Congress of Rheumatology (MCR) that will be held on August 28-31, 2014, in Istanbul.

Both the local organizing committee and the scientific committee of the MCR, are committed to shaping a program that covers a wide range of topics aimed to be both of high quality and interest to the rheumatologists in the Mediterranean Area. Conference sessions will include regional as well as common rheumatic diseases worldwide, with a special emphasis on regional variations in disease risk and disease expression.

The Congress will provide an excellent platform for the participants to not only update their current knowledge in the field of rheumatology, but also to meet colleagues and friends from the Mediterranean and neighboring countries to form new friendships, to promote academic exchanges at an international level and to stimulate new research. There will also be opportunities for selected participants to present their work in oral and poster sessions. In addition to the scientific program, an appealing social program will also be offered during the course of the Congress.

The Congress venue at the Hilton Hotel is in the heart of the city of Istanbul. Istanbul, which served as the capital to Byzantine and Ottoman Empires for sixteen centuries is located at the intersection of civilizations and continents. She, with her historical monuments and magnificent sceneries, is a truly fascinating city that everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. As the 19th century French writer and politician Alphonse de Lamartine put it, “If one had but a single glance to give the world, one should gaze on Istanbul.”

We look forward to having you join us in Istanbul in August 2014 for what promises to be a memorable event!

Prof. Nurullah AKKOÇ
President of the XV. MCR
