For the first time since the founding of the European Shock Society (33 years ago), its congress will be held in France, and Paris will host the XVIIth Congress of the ESS from 13th to 15th September, 2017.

An international committee has proposed 55 different topics, and 15 of them have been selected by the members of the ESS Executive Committee and by the French Organising Committee.

Three “premières” will happened:

  • For the first time, based on the initiative of Markus Huber-Lang (our President-Elect), a student-oriented “Shock Summer School” (SSS) will be organized on the very first morning of the congress. Its general topic is “sepsis” and the SSS will be fittingly held during the “World Sepsis Day”.
  • For the first time ever, a joint session with the Chinese Shock Society will be organized.
  • For the first time ever, a joint session with the US Shock Society will be organized.
