There are a few very important deadlines coming up for the biennial ISN World Congress of Nephrology (WCN 2013) "Sustainability and Diversity" which takes place in the vibrant city of Hong Kong from May 31 to June 4.

The ISN World Congress of Nephrology is the leading biennial educational event in international nephrology, attracting attendance from the worldwide nephrology community, including physicians, academicians, and clinical and basic researchers, as well as other healthcare professionals involved in multidisciplinary nephrology care.

Early Registration Deadline - January 31

There are only 21 days left to take advantage of the early registration rates. If you haven't already registered, please do so soon to ensure your place at this leading ‘world congress’ of nephrology and to take advantage of the early registration rates. You can save up to $280 by registering before January 31.

Late Breaking Abstract Submission Deadline - January 18

The call for Late Breaking Abstracts is not an extension of the general abstract submission deadline which closed December 10, 2012. The focus of Late Breaking Abstracts is placed on capturing abstracts with ground-breaking and unique data that would not otherwise have been presented at the World Congress of Nephrology. The selection process will be very strict and only the top 3 abstracts will be chosen for presentation.

Satellite Symposium Abstract Deadline - January 15

The 9th Conference on Kidney Disease in Disadvantaged Populations, a WCN satellite conference taking place after WCN 2013 and organized by the ISN GO - Global Outreach Committee for Kidney Health in Disadvantaged Populations (CKHDP) in conjunction with Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science, has extended its abstract submission deadline to January 15. Note, the abstracts can be the same as submitted to WCN 2013.

Don't miss this chance to take part in the leading "world congress" of nephrology, not only providing a world-class scientific program but also reflecting the unique role of ISN to advance renal care in both the developed and the developing world.

We look forward to receiving your registrations by January 31 and to seeing you in Hong Kong on May 31.
