Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to welcome you to Lucerne from 30 March to 1 April 2022, on the occasion of the Joint Annual Meeting 2022 of the Swiss Society of Pneumology, the Swiss Society of Thoracic Surgery and the Swiss Society for Sleep Research, Sleep Medicine and Chronobiology.

After months in which we were unable to meet on a large scale and in which we had to rely on digital meetings instead, we are particularly delighted to announce that we plan a physical congress again.

Together with the scientific committee we will prepare a programme that we trust catches the most exciting new developments in all areas of pneumology, thoracic surgery and sleep research.
As usual, the programme will offer main lectures, workshops, free communications selected from abstracts, as well as poster sessions.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you in Lucerne!

Best regards

Prof. Dr. med. Silvia Ulrich                             Dr. med. Marjam Rüdiger-Stürchler
